Villa Village Vienna

The original villas of the Speising area were inhabited by single families, providing each villa with a distinctive character. Throughout history however, they have assembled more and more inhabitants while maintaining their individuality. In this proposal, the villa will serve as multi-family dwellings.

The original villas of the Speising area were inhabited by single families, providing each villa with a distinctive character. Throughout history however, they have assembled more and more inhabitants while maintaining their individuality. In this proposal, the villa will serve as multi-family dwellings.

The characteristic Lainzer villa model has been applied in a slightly adapted new form: buildings are considered as villas on a plot of land, but they are rotated and located to block noise from trains and other traffic. Glass screens close off the openings in the perimeter between the villas in order to create noise free public spaces. This composition of villas creates two kinds of spaces: the more intimate alleys between the villas, and more public spaces of the squares.

Roofs are cut to a 35 degree angle in order to provide the optimal solar conditions for solar systems. In total, around 4,300 m² of solar panels are distributed on all building blocks. Around 75% of this surface can be used for solar systems. With a yearly solar radiation of 1,350 kWh/m² and an efficiency of 15%, all solar panels can produce around 650 mWh energy (electricity / heat).
