Gabu Heindl in cooperation with Rataplan and Sophie Valla
Vienna 2005
Invited competition entry, 2nd prize

Contemporary working conditions, such as short time jobs, global "expat" travelling, or mobility in profes-
sional careers in general, ask for new building typologies and programs, such as a boardinghouse: an
apartment-like hotel or an apartment building with hotel-like amenities.
The site of the invited competition was equally demanding: in the centre of Vienna's first district, the new
building replaces an old building, which was part of a historic facade-ensemble. The goal was to create a
contemporary richness of the facade, which relates to composition features of the ensemble.
