FRAUENGASSE HOUSING



LOCATION: JUDENBURG, AUSTRIA

DATE: 2004

PROGRAM: HOUSING, 22 UNITS

SIZE: 22,000 SF



Judenburg, Frauengasse will be the first four-story wood structure in Austria to take advantage of innovative new technology, including panelized construction and pre-fabricated laminated balconies.

The structure will provide 22 apartments, ranging in size from 800-950 sf, retail space at ground level, and an underground parking garage. This housing typology will be part of a new urban structure which was designed by MACK Architect(s) after winning an invited international competition. The design provides an open and flexible infrastructure by combining groups of dwellings, public/private open spaces, and walk streets. A series of allotment gardens run through the middle of the development connecting the site to its immediate past -the farmland just outside the city.
