multi-purpose building / high-quality housing / adjacent to riverbank / dynamic folded glass façade / flats with loggias towards the river / penthouses with roof terraces / recreational inner courtyard
High-quality housing, offices and commercial premises have been compressed into a compact urban multifunctional building located on a central site directly on the riverbank of Mur. Two different typologies meet the special requirements of the property. The first building unit accommodates three commercial and office floors densely stacked beneath three housing floors with a linking access corridor, all connected by a dynamic folded moss-green glass façade on the street side. The second building structure provides flats with generous loggias facing the waterside and the greenbelt along the river. Various housing sizes ranging from smaller units to large two-story penthouses with generous roof terraces emphasizes the urban character of the project. The inner courtyard and the paths on different levels connect the building units and serve as communication and resting zones and quiet areas simultaneously.
