Housing complex on the premises of the Rosenhügel Film Studios

The housing project "Der Rosenhügel" is located on the former site of the Rosenhügel film studios on the border of Liesing and Hietzing in Vienna. To emphasize the historical past of the site, the seven houses with 204 privately financed condominiums are named after international film studios.


A sequence of buildings differentiated by scale use the open terrain of the site to create a fine structure of flowing outdoor spaces. The point houses allow the generous park landscape to flow through up to SpeisingerStraße, with a variety of views and connecting pathways. The scale of the houses blends in with the granularity of the quarter. The height development of the Rosenhügel residential complex is manageable with one ground floor plus two to four standard floors. Above this there are one or two recessed penthouses.


Residential project "Der Rosenhügel" more than just living space

Due to the free form of the houses, as well as the variation in the number of floors and height levels, the residential buildings offer an enormous variety with the same basic structure and economical construction method. The wide range of differentiated floor plan types is to be emphasized. The circumferential balconies lend lightness to the structures and make the boundaries of the building blur. At the same time, they create exterior spaces with a west-south-east orientation and give privacy from neighbors.


The apartments are between 50 and 163 square meters in size and all have outdoor spaces in form of a garden, terrace or balcony. The clod-like formations of the gardens around the houses create a gradation between public, semi-public and private open spaces. The residents are happy about awellness area, a workshop or a room for family celebrations, dog owners about a dog washingplace. The open space in the heart of the complex is an invitation for the residents to meet and experience community.
