The project by Nickl & Partner Architekten AG and 3:0 Landschaftsarchitekten was awarded 2nd prize in an expert opinion procedure for the “Home for the Blind, Vienna 14” sponsored by Österreichische Blindenwohlfahrt gemeinnützige GmbH (ÖBW).
The goal of the design competition for the new ÖBW building was the design of a contemporary home for individuals impaired by blindness. The guiding principle of our building concept was to design a sustainable, functional building that addresses the special needs of blind persons.
A modular basic structure, which encourages clarity in the distribution of uses, underlies the design of the new building. This clarity is found in both the form of links and the floor plan.
The proposal stipulates exclusive use of ecological, healthy building materials typical of the region in both the structure and interior finishes. This can significantly reduce negative impacts on nature and the environment.
We are delighted to have taken 2nd place!
