WHA Mödling Neusiedlerviertel

PLOV ARCHITEKTEN ZT GmbH as Architects

The residential complex in Mödling comprised two building sections in the tender. We won over the jury with the residential building east of Grutschgasse. The urban planning core ideas of the design are based on the prescribed basic configuration of the zoning and development planning as well as the underlying master plan and develop these in a choreography between typology and function.

The allocation for the building to the east of Grutschgasse envisages an L-shaped development oriented towards the northeastern open space with wing depths between 18 and 20 m. Based on this, a double-hipped building was organized around a central atrium. Access to the building is via Grutschgasse. The common areas are centrally located on the ground floor of the building and have access to the garden. By integrating the underground car park entrance into the building cubature to the south-west, the high-quality open spaces to the south can be used for apartment gardens.

The apartments are accessed via a bright and generously dimensioned atrium. A recess in the northeast of the building leading to the garden enables natural lighting of the corridors and access areas. At the same time, north-facing apartments are avoided. All apartments have generous private open spaces in the form of loggias and/or balconies. Due to the staggered arrangement of the balconies, they each have protected single-story areas as well as open, 2-story zones.

The common room on the ground floor is oriented towards the large open space of the residential complex and lends itself for communal garden parties. The garden will have a variety of installations including community beds, a children's playground, as well as sunbathing areas and sundecks, and is adjacent to the park north of Quellenstrasse and the planned footpath and bike path.
