TRA – Residential Project Traviatagasse

Living Around the Commons

Being at home in a village inside the city. Neighborliness is considered as an essential feel-good factor of every community. Following this maxim, this residential estate in Vienna’s 23rd district also engages the surrounding neighborhood and places a focus on communicative facilities for residents of all generations. Four built volumes, which accommodate about 200 apartments and a kindergarten, frame a generous open area which, like a village green, connects the estate to the surrounding streets and other green areas, upgrading the entire neighborhood. The estate also includes a variety of spatial offerings: a large multi-purpose community hall, a children’s indoor playground with washroom facilities, a bicycle repair shop, an open-bookcase library, or a barter shelf for use by everybody. A kindergarten and a shared apartment for young refugees were also included in the planning, as was a plaza facing Traviatagasse, which, together with the youth club located there, is intended to become yet another neighborhood meeting point. Apart from balconies and loggias, each of the four buildings also has a community terrace with a roof garden. And just like the seedling in the raise garden beds there take time to grow, so do friendships and neighborly relations. However, the ground for a lively cross-generational community should be prepared in any case in the open residential estate in Traviatagasse.
