Urban development VIERTEL ZWEI

 Back to Projects list
Location
Wien, Austria
Year
2010

Following a collaborative revision of the urban concept in 2004, the open spaces are the business card of VIERTEL ZWEI in Vienna-Krieau. They are differentiated, reflecting the range of constructions within the site. The various utilisations correspond to one another and form diverse, topographically shaped milieus in the striking urban planning (and vehicle-free) context.

The most important open space is a kind of “central park”, around which the location has developed step by step. It makes the new quarter distinctive and gives it a high quality of stay and utilisation, as well as providing a wide range of appropriation possibilities – also in the space between the buildings.

An artificial landscape with a large central area of water, crossed by a jetty bridge, forms the core of the area. The lake is framed by a clearly-structured promenade with pyramid oaks and an undulating riverbank line, while the banks of the river have different designs: a clear, stone edge of access in the south forms a fascinating contrast to the hilly edge on the northern side. A lily pond forms the edge in the east, while a grove of bald cypresses borders the water in the west. Trees lead from the paved area down into the water, as if going swimming.
