Living in Tivoligasse

A Green Oasis in Urban Surroundings

Located in Vienna's 12th district of Meidling, Tivoligasse is a perfect example of how urbanisation and green space are not necessarily mutually exclusive: for the client Palmers Immobilien, the team from the local architecture studio Freimüller Söllinger designed an ensemble of four loosely positioned buildings on a green deck. This led to the construction of 103 apartments, a supermarket, a bicycle garage, a community room, an underground car park and an openair deck right in the middle of the inner-city.

In your opinion, why is timber the perfect building material for residential construction?
“In general, solid timber construction is climate-friendly, it stores a lot of CO2, and renewable resources are used in Austria. At the end of their lifespan, the houses are almost entirely recyclable. 
The buildings offer a very pleasant, comfortable living environment. And visible wooden elements, such as ceiling soffits, increase their feel-good factor. The exposed timber formwork on building facades exudes hospitality and warmth.
In inner-city densification, the high degree of prefabrication and short assembly times also highlight the advantages of wood in the city. Research on soundproofing and fire protection in large-volume residential construction is really just getting started.”
