Storchengasse, Vienna (AT)

A student dormitory, a hotel, a ground-level food market and a two-story underground car park were built in the city center of Vienna on a site at the “Wienzeile” between Westbahnhof and Schloß Schönbrunn. Common areas, a gym and a 24 hours concierge service are located on the first floor above the grocery store. The low-energy reinforced concrete building was extended on the eighth floor by an attic in timber frame construction, which hosts a communal terrace providing splendid views over Vienna. The leafy inner courtyard provides rest in the middle of the city underneath and surrounded by trees.Each apartment comprises a private outdoor area. The rental apartments designed for one or two people, range from 30 to 38 m² and are equipped with kitchenette, bathroom and loggia. Parquet floor, high-quality tiles, threshold-free showers and wood-aluminum windows meet high quality standards.
