Housing development
Perfektastraße / Dernjacgasse, 23rd District

Pilot Project:
Hans Puchhammer, Rudolf Prohazka
Hanno Ganahl, Walter Ifsits, Werner Larch, Adolf Krischanitz, NFOG, Georg Feferle, Hermann&Valentiny

The architects who won the clients’ competition are showing a successful interpretation of the site’s geography in five lots.
Long blocks and free-standing buildings dominate the architectural image. Facets of the traditional housing estates are overlapped with contemporary demands placed on welfare housing. The suburban atmosphere and life in the countryside are emphasised by access galleries, terraces and roof gardens.

Four eight-storey blocks running along the railway line function as an acoustic shield for the neighbouring buildings, they are staggered downwards to two storeys. Commercial spaces for the provision of groceries etc. are planned along Perfektastrasse.

Lot A:
Architects: Ganahl – Ifsits – Larch
An elongated row of buildings with stairwells open to the east and glazed gallery access on the second level as a communicative zone and to provide access to the maisonettes.

Lot B:
Architect: Hans Puchhammer

Lot C:
Architects: Hermann & Valentiny
Horizontally articulated rows mediate between the low existing fabric east of Dernjacgasse and the free-standing blocks.
Buffer zones develop towards the east, to the road with structures with shrubbery, and to the south with surfaces of water and orchards.
All south-facing apartments lead into verandas, loggias and winter gardens.

Architects: NFOG (Nigst – Fonatti – Ostertag – Gaisrucker)
Landscape Design: Maria Auböck

Lot E:
Architect: Adolf Krischanitz
