J5A lakeside – residential high rise, Vienna

The residential building lakeside is named after its location by the lake in the seestadt aspern. This influenced greatly querkraft’s design, which through a compact volumetry and the big cantilevering of the balconies allows a view of the lake from every unit.
The balconies are made of a single precast concrete element with a length of up to 3.30 meters.
The rainscreen façade is made of corrugated metal sheets emphasizing the vertical linearity of this high rise. The different volumes of the building are also characterized with different tonalities of grey and white. The space between them forms the communication area, painted with an intense yellow and recognizable from the outside.
The lower levels in front of the lake promenade form a plinth, in which the split-level communal spaces and playroom are located. Most of the residential units in the tower have double height living rooms up to 5.40m. This makes for a specially generous space, bringing the outside into the living area.
