BEN : 40 x Residing in Aspern, Austria by SUE Architekten

The plot,which spans across an area of 150 x 17 x 34m, is situated directly beside the old village green of Aspern; here we have conceived 40 apartments of two different construction types.
In the garden between the two apartment houses facing the street there are 18 town houses, discretely out of sight from the street. To ensure a high degree of residential quality and a sense of spaciousness despite the density of the development (45 %) and the short distance between the buildings compared to their height, the town houses are arranged in a staggered pattern to each other.
Building regulations for the town houses would have required us to build the houses with very steeply pitched roofs. We had to convince the building authority that creative application of dormer and staircase well regulations and their proper implementation would create structures of equivalent cubature, without presenting a disadvantage for neighbours while providing at the same time usable, modern floor plans for future users.
The average building height is still at the prescribed 4 meters. Yet now, the houses have two main floors and to some extent a spacious top floor, providing ample usable space.
