Am Garnmarkt, Götzis (AT)

The apartment buildings are part of one of the largest multi-complex developments in Vorarlberg. The two housing projects meet very different requirements for two clients: While one building comprises privately funded condominiums, the other provides attractive subsidized housing. Both feature polygonal layouts – hexagonal at the condominium, pentagonal at the subsidized housing – that enable multiple orientations for the flats and various outdoor extensions. The flats are accessed via a central sky-lit atrium, and both apartment types have an open dining area with adjoining balcony.
