Located on Vienna´s Kaiserstraße, a historic, four-pillar iron gate, leading back to Vienna´s Gründerzeit, remains the main entrance to the park. Behind the gate, there are shrub beds on both sides to widen the space, inviting visitors to enter. A boomerang shaped arch, made of colorasphalt and small cobblestone paving, creates wideness and connects two axes. The ‚green‘ axis strings together avenue trees, a sun deck, urban gardening beds and a spacious lawn area. The ‚active‘ axis includes three wooden pavilions (‚Salettl-trilogy‘), a play and sports area and the entrance area Enzingerstraße. The clear and legible zoning of the park provides orientation and offers a wide view. The arrangement refers to a contiguous church and an afferent rudimentary avenue.
What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
The most surprising advantage is the feature of the new designed wooden pavilions. The park is designed for different groups of people and social layers. The children have a very huge area to play and move – in the middle of the city.
