Three Houses in Vienna

Residential Buildings by Werner Neuwirth, Krucker von Ballmoos, Sergison Bates

Three Houses in Vienna presents an in-depth account of the creation and design of a new housing project in the Austrian capital. The project, which consists of three multi-family buildings grouped together, was commissioned by Neues Leben, a private social housing and building cooperative. It is part of a major redevelopment plan for the vast area of a former railway terminus. Each house was designed by a different architectural firm—von Ballmoos Krucker Architekten of Zürich, Werner Neuwirth Architekt of Vienna, and Sergison Bates Architects of London—and each reflects a distinct character and attitude. Yet despite the buildings’ differing colors, materials, and floor plans, they all clearly work as a group and offer their residents an effective combination of public and private spaces. The book explores their creation through essays and images, site and floor plans, elevations and renderings, all lavishly presented.
