Social housing in Vienna has an international reputation. With new demands such as 'social sustainability' and 'SMART living', the regulative forces that are involved in the creation of a new housing construction are also becoming more dense.

Alongside diverse social facilities for young and old, the recently completed project Sonnwendviertel II by Rüdiger Lainer + Partner and BKK-3 also offers measures that promote communication for the new community. Together with the architects, we look behind the scenes of housing construction, a dense mesh of regulations covering density, fire safety, balcony depth and energy standards, as well as minimum room sizes and rent ceilings.
