RAC – Račianska Residential High-Rise Complex

Better living in Bratislava

A residential complex, planned by AllesWirdGut Architects with the collaboration of an international team of experts, sets a new standard in Bratislava.
For the ambitious project, we have, in conjunction with Slovakian developer Corwin, brought together a high-caliber project team: Transsolar, a globally active energy systems engineering firm, will be responsible for building systems and HVAC engineering, the landscaping will be done by Berlin-based landscape architects Man Made Land, and the communication pros of raum&kommunikation from Vienna will assist us in developing new concepts for good-neighborly relations.

The projected complex consists of a north and a south tower of 20 and 17 floors, respectively, and an 8-floor intermediate building connecting the two residential high-rises. The façade of the buildings is structured by distinctive rectangular loggias in front of the individual apartments. The lobbies have double ceiling height and are generous and high-quality in design, underscoring the importance assigned to these circulation areas that are used collectively by all residents. The housing complex has one to two room apartments well as family apartments of three or four rooms. On the upper floors, there are even more generously laid-out penthouse-style apartments with terraces. The 8th-floor level of the intermediate building will provide space for a rooftop park for community use by the residents.
With this project, the city of Bratislava puts its name on the international architecture map, demonstrating an innovative spirit that would be something to wish for in other cities as well.
