The Forum Donaustadt constitutes an adequate urban intervention to scale at its given location in Vienna’s northern periphery. The area’s composition and structure include six buildings, two of which are highrises delimiting the complex on the site’s northern and southern margins.

The buildings accommodate living- and office spaces, a hotel, administration units, and public institutions, hence featuring a high degree of functional heterogeneity and variation.

The area’s composition and structure include two highrises delimiting the complex on the site’s northern and southern margins. The buildings accommodate living- and office spaces, a hotel, administration units, and public institutions, hence featuring a high degree of functional heterogeneity and variation. The circulation areas’ design and stratification result in an exciting interplay of light and visual references between the storeys. An immaterial web of visual and atmospheric communication axes underlines verticality and horizontality within the building ensemble, allowing for an uncomplicated orientation at every location.

The general aspect of the urban ensemble is characterized by a user-friendly space allocation.

Diverse free spaces between the buildings form a varied and qualitative urban landscape composed of partly roofed promenades, terraces and green areas.

Path networks, squares and communication areas are interlinked on an equal level.

The new buildings naturally blend in with existing structures and stand in constant atmospheric communication with their surroundings.
