Insiders’ secret: Vienna’s small garden communities!
Changes in laws governing small gardens and ingenious designs by expert teams of architects have transformed the image of small garden communities from suburban pea patches to sought-after building sites. The discovery of legislative loopholes along with the architects’ skillful use of limited space while maximizing the advantages of site and view have made the construction of many a dream home in small gardens on the outskirts of Vienna possible.
Passing the Heuberg settlement sundays will guide us to Tatami in Hernals, to a daring projecting structure in Ottakring and on to clever precision in Hietzing.
