New Hotel Topazz demonstrates landmark architecture in the historic heart of Vienna

New Hotel Topazz looks to its historic location while being constructed with empathy for its surroundings and Vienna's future in mind. Surrounded by historical buildings, it is the first green upscale hotel in the city centre. Its resource-saving energy concept uses advanced technology to generate low operating cost resources. But the sustainable approach does not end there, throughout the hotel high-quality green materials have been used for building and interior design....http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com/index.php?fuseaction=wanappln.projectview&upload_id=19778

Terrace House Tokiostrasse / ARTEC Architekten

Architects: ARTEC Architekten
Location: Terrace House Tokiostrasse, Vienna, Austria
Architect In Charge: Bettina Götz, Richard Manahl
Project Year: 2010
Project Area: 48,881 sqm
Photographs: Courtesy of ARTEC Architekten

Analogous to the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tale The Town Musicians of Bremen (whose main characters are a donkey, a dog, a cat, and a rooster), this reinterpretation of terrace houses involves stacking different apartment types atop one another.

Dwelling types normally considered suburban, with the accompanying outdoor spaces, are stacked atop one another to achieve an urban bundle with high density: On the very bottom of the stack, the units each have an open floor plan with a gallery at the back and a garden in front; on the next level, maisonettes face on to an atrium courtyard; next there are 2-story row houses with terraces; and at the top allotment-garden “houses” are separated by courtyards.

Along the street, a wing made up of the Casablanca type on “stilts” is superimposed upon the physical site on Tokiostrasse. A simple, ribbon-like element marking the apartments in the facade (nicknamed “the spider”) provides the rigid massing with a physiognomy facing the public realm as well as an outermost boundary of the respective dwelling-units toward the street.

To the east, a green space running from north to south is flanked by the stacked structures, whose respective circulation is a new take on the Laubengang (a veranda-like walkway with a long tradition in Central Europe). To the south and north, the wings running along the property lines and enclosing the courtyard are only two stories high. In this manner, with respect to both the new structure and its neighbors, the sunlight and the view are only minimally infringed upon, and the sense of privacy and articulation toward the street remains intact. The vegetation at the center of the complex is linked to the streetscape via the open ground floor zone.

The sculptural building massing is articulated to provide the apartments with a pronounced relationship to the outdoors. Every apartment has its own adjoining outdoor space – the majority of them potentially compact gardens. All apartments are cross-ventilated; the kitchens and bathrooms receive daylight and have natural ventilation.

In addition, the residents have access to the roof surface atop the wing running along the street, with its green terrace, swimming pool and sun deck; the playgrounds on terraces are situated at “mid-level”, and the ground-level courtyard is a recreational area and playground, as well.

The garage’s skylights also double as seating and illuminaires in the courtyard. The building’s exterior is characterized by the atrium and its vegetation, as well as by the terraces; the high degree of permeability at street level translates into an open atmosphere for residents and passers-by, and ensures that sufficient surface area will be available for possible future adaptations.

Residential and Nursing Home Simmering / Josef Weichenberger Architects + Partner

Architects: Josef Weichenberger Architects + Partner
Location: Vienna, Austria
Architect In Charge: Mark Steinmetz, Benno Wutzl
Photographs: Paul Ott, Mark Steinmetz, Armin Plankensteiner
Project Area: 5,800 sqm
Floor Space: 30,000 sqm

In the heart of Vienna’s 11th district, on a lot densely vegetated by an old tree population, a new game-changing geriatrics center was to be realized.

Central idea:

High-quality dwelling for care-dependent senior citizens in the comforting atmosphere of a green oasis – rather then the common, sterile, hospital-style atmosphere of geriatrics centers as they used to be. The individual wards of the center are designed to conceptually resemble an organic city center, with all its varying and diversified spatial characteristics. They are articulated into common rooms and lounges on the “squares”, and small dwelling units lining the “alleys”. These all have naturally lit bathrooms as well as either loggias or balconies which offer beautyful vistas of the surrounding treetops and cityscape.

Apart from their orientation towards the exterior, all bedrooms feature interior glass openings which establish a visual connection with the “village squares” inside the building. This leaves inhabitants with the possibilty to enjoy both watching the goings-on around the building as well as participating actively or passively in a ward’s everyday life.

Finally a spatious and welcoming groundfloor – again resembling a small city center – complements what the individual wards have to offer with small shops, a café, a treatment and therapy center, daycare facilities for visitors and a multi-purpose space.

Three new buildings at "Schnirchgasse":













www.triiiple.at

At the moment there are some old buildings:



www.meinbezirk.at

The buildings will be demolished in 2014 - construction start for the project will be in fall/winter 2014. It will be completely finished in 2018 and the height of the buildings will be 80-100m (maybe more) and in the neighborhood there is one more skyscraper with about 121m planned (beginning of construction this year - should be finished in 2015) called "CB21":







www.immonet.at

At the moment there is only this lonely building (100m):



www.ee-concept.de

And there is the potential for some more higher buildings all around and maybe there will be a new little Skyline in 2020 - one more for Vienna beside "Vienna DC" and "Wienerberg". Sadly they don't build all skyscrapers on just one place...

You don't build such a thing in the historic center.
:lol: Historic? Have you ever been in Vienna? This city isn't only historic and especially THIS area is really NOT historic. Why do all people think Vienna is just historic? A really horrible misunderstanding from the most people on earth that the cities Salzburg and Vienna for example are only historic - hey, Austria is one of the most modern states on earth! The historic city of Vienna is just one little part of the whole city, got it?
Can't hear that sh*t one more again...

Bubbly looking? You mean the round one? Hopefully you know that this renders really can't say anything about the result, because you can't see anything about the cladding, but we'll hopefully see some more details soon... ;)

some projects...

Vienna North Hospital











projects around the new main station:

Habt ihr schon die Webpräsenz des Gesamtprojektes "Quartier Belvedere" gesehen? Wirklich sehr schön aufgebaut und es werden jede Menge neuer Einblicke gewährt und viele nützliche Daten:





Und hier die Infoblätter zu sämtlichen Einzelprojekten, die man auch auf einer Karte abrufen kann:

Park Apartments am Belvedere:



__________

Baufeld am Schweizergarten:



__________

Quartier Belvedere Süd:



__________

ÖBB-Konzernzentrale:



__________

Erste Campus:



__________

Quartier Belvedere Central (QBC):



__________

A01:



__________

Die Visualisierungen des "A01" Projekts dürften wir wohl bald zu Gesicht bekommen. Ich dachte auch, dass man dieses Hochhaus erst bis 2019 bauen will, aber letzten Sommer hat die Sigma Holding das Grundstück gekauft und jetzt sieht es ziemlich gut aus...
Allgemein ist das Gesamtprojekt der pure Erfolg! Es wurden bereits alle Grundstücke verkauft bis auf das Baufeld B.03 (ist im Projekt "Quartier Belvedere Süd" mit drinnen, weshalb hier bei der Fertigstellung "ab Ende 2013 bis 2019" angegeben wird), wo wahrscheinlich ebenfalls ein rund 60m hohes Gebäude hinkommen wird - hoffen wir mal, dass das Grundstück noch heuer verkauft wird, dann könnte sich die Fertigstellung noch bis 2017 ausgehen.
Allgemein sollte der gesamte neue Stadtteil um den Hauptbahnhof (inclusive Sonnwendviertel) bis 2019/2020 fertig sein. Insgesamt 10 Jahre Bauzeit (Abriss sogar mit eingerechnet) finde ich für so ein Projekt echt ziemlich fortschrittlich!
Bank-Austria-Campus (Unicredit)
