martin mostböck has designed the living garden around the conceptual core of the ‘forest, (the open space in the courtyard), the green vein (the ramp along the façade), the leaves (the generous terraces) and the green skin (the façade of the building). the ground floor of the project incorporates commercial facilities such as shops and pubs, as well as bicycle rooms and access to the lobbies of the three stairways.

apartment types include mostly single-story flats or over corner, two-sided oriented residences, while in the graded part of the building, three-sided oriented apartments with balconies and generous roof terraces are located. the ramp along the façade connects the terraces, starting from the courtyard and leading up to an intensively green roof. the skin wrapping the living garden is created by planters (including irrigation) placed on the balconies from which the vegetation develops vertically along the facade and continues horizontally over the pergolas.

  • Hello, this looks stunning. I love the idea of sustainable architecture. I am inerested in environmental topics..But let me ask you. How you plan to irrigate all the plants? Is there some special grey water cyclus for irrigation? Thank you very much and greetings from Czech Republic.
