Penthouse Neilreichgasse, Vienna

Favoriten, the 10th district of Vienna, has the highest amount of buildings from the “Gründerzeit” period. Nowhere in the city is the grid street plan as clear as in this district, an urban development which has been greatly expanded at around 1900.

In Neilreichgasse this coherent block structure is suddenly interrupted. On one side of the street there is a commercial property with a supermarket and a parking lot and then, on the other side, our residential building with a lower construction height.

Due to the low height of the commercial structure standing opposite to our development, it is easy to recognize the building from afar. It is very unfortunate that at such an outstanding and visible point, there exist nothing but a break: A gap between two adjoining buildings.

The architects’ design for the Penthouse aims at refilling this gap and closing the “Gründerzeit” block again. In this way Daneshgar Architects could restore the typical character of the 10th district with a new contemporary architecture. Respect for the elderly and at the same time place for the new; this is how the architecture practice understand the city.
