Sakura in Wien, Austria by NERMA LINSBERGER ZTGMBH

Sunday, February 12th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The property is located on a very busy intersection. An intervention in the existing building use class made possible better light and sun exposure conditions. In order to defuse the “T”-point, a V-shaped courtyard has been cut into the building. The paths to the access balcony and the ancillary areas are concentrated around the courtyard.

A passage in the East creates a pedestrian connection between Brünnerstraße and a park in the West.

Article source: Inhabit Homes

At Shepherdess Walk you have the character of a period property, coupled with the feeling of space, huge windows to bring in lots of light and an extremely environmentally friendly home with the advantage of low bills.

If you enjoy modern art and modern living, you want a home that reflects your contemporary taste, not another run of the mill Victorian terrace house; if you want design that adapts to your lifestyle, not the other way round; a space that you can live, work, eat and play in; a home that you can grow old in – then Shepherdess Walk is for you.

Article source: Beckmann-N’Thépé

This project is part of the scheme to reconsider urban identity in the Centre Urbain, the new neighbourhood that is the emblem of the future Evry. Rows, set back buildings, an interplay of terraces, and “urban windows” create an openness towards the heart of the small island.
