This project was about a rooftop extension placed in the down town of vienna. I was responsible for the design.
The rooftop extensions provides space for about eight new apartments. Four of them are placed in the part of the building which is faced to the street. The two linear building parts which conclude the green inner courtyard provide space for four further apartments.
The initial idea for the design was to transport the green of inner courtyard upon the roofs. So I decided to provide every apartment a terrace or an atrium. Atrium houses are generated on top of an already existing building. This should be a try to connect a higher density with green gardens, known from the suburbs.
