PLACE AND ARCHITECTURE: Stringency meets dynamism
Baumschlager Eberle Architekten build for the place. This attitude was implemented in a particularly stringent manner with the two building sites (178 apartments in total) in the "Meiller Gärten" residential quarter near the Olypiapark. Approximately 300 meters as the crow flies and a modified urban disposition determine the appearance of the residential buildings.
On Untermenzinger Strasse in the northwest, the curved balconies have achieved a quick reading of the theme of "transition" into the depth of the neighborhood. On the southwestern Margarete-Steif-Strasse, the stringent orthogonality of the facades is a logical configuration in connection with the strict spatial edge. In the courtyard interior, the architecture emphasizes the presence of the building by the swinging out of the facades.
Despite the different reactions, adapted to each context, the elementary possibilities of architecture are used: light, geometry as well as materiality to generate plasticity and dynamics. Added value of this simplicity: high thermal efficiency and special quality of living, thanks to the solid construction.
