417. KAP – Kapellenhof

AllesWirdGut as Architects

My new home
Uniquely situated around a spacious urban grove on Kapellenweg in Vienna’s 22nd district is a residential estate which, conceptually and aesthetically, is modeled on the municipal housing of the traditional Viennese Gemeindebau. Conceived as a large courtyard estate, a clear and self-confident ensemble emerges: the Kapellenhof. Here 450 new residential units were completed to designs by AllesWirdGut and feld72, whose collaborative planning gave special attention to the potentials of the location—views and greenery.


Small-scale built-up areas on the fringes as well es the courtyard—the size of a soccer pitch—afford each apartment the widest possible view. Laid out as an adventurous, topographically varied urban grove that offers private retreats and open clearings, the courtyard is framed by four buildings, which all have designated community areas with terraces for collective use. The grove as a shared green hub encourages, and lends itself, to good neighborliness. The idea of providing sites of encounter and interaction for more than 1,000 new residents is also given expression in a multi-purpose space on the north side and a community pub and diner at the southern intersection. A vital four-sided ensemble where trees and neighborly relations grow!

The “Kapellenhof” in Vienna’s 22nd district offers affordable housing with a high quality of life. A perforated block perimeter with a spacious inner courtyard is reminiscent of traditional Viennese municipal housing. Bright rooms, far-reaching views and green spaces are offered by the apartments whilst the courtyard in the heart of the complex is an open playground, offering fluid transition between areas of retreat and places that encourage social interaction. Courtyard-facing entrances together with communal rooms and terraces complete this inviting ensemble. A raised plinth, that grounds the body of the building, the stringent structure of the French window, polygonal balconies and the colorfulness of the different architectural elements create homogeneity in a heterogeneous environment.
