The building is located in Vienna’s sensitive and historic city center thus the design required a considerate adaptation to the adjacent historical buildings.
Jan Ammundsen, Architect, Partner and responsible for the design says: ‘We have created a building that in terms of its volume ,materiality and color scheme elements fit into the historic surroundings but through an expressive design with its curved façade the building has its own identity and creates an urban space for city life.’

After the birth of their first daughter, the young family were taken by the idea of a single-family house in the countryside. in the wienerwald they found a little house in need of rehabilitation with a large garden. prospective possibilities of enlargement were already investigated before buying the property.the lean budget required a high portion of own capital in order to take the first steps in renovating the old building and undertake thermal sanitation.upon completion of sanitation, the second child had already been born, and thoughts regarding an annexe became more concrete. also, the grandmother’s wish for a granny flat should be taken into consideration. building regulations left little leeway regarding building density and height. in order to accommodate the entire spatial programme, developing a two-storey structure was mandatory.

The residential building in the 21st district of Vienna contains a total of 42 small apartments between 40 and 50m². Each has either a bright balcony or a private terrace. In the attic floor there are spacious apartments with associated large roof terraces.
While planning this building it was essential to reach an optimal exploitation of the officially permitted building volume. Common areas such as a spacious green courtyard including a modern children’s play area have loads of space available.

When an architect delivers a building it is always an extremely emotional moment, marked by the end of a long process of mediation, from absolute potentiality of early sketches to fine tuning in situ of final details. An actor, for a time, in the endless development of territories, the architect exits the scene. He hands over the controls to those he has been working for. This is the moment when architecture transitions from the intellectual, conceptual state to the fundamentally physical and real.

The Velux Sunlighthouse in Pressbaum near Vienna is the first co²-neutral single-family-house in Austria.
The challenge was to create a house that taps the full potential of the plot on the one hand and to develop an energy and ecology concept that would erase the ecological footprint of the house within the next thirty years on the other hand. What distinguishes this project from many ambitious preceding projects is the aim to combine minimized numerical values for energy efficiency with ambitious architecture in spite of an all but ideal plot.
