Reininghaus Quartier 7, Graz

Graz-Reininghaus Quartier 7 consists of 4 housing estates of multistorey wooden buildings with quiet green courtyards. Arranged around a central square, they contain over 200 subsidised flats, a children’s daycare centre and commercial facilities. Quiet, high-quality urban living spaces are created through architecture and landscaping focussing on generous open spaces. With buildings of up to 6 storeys, Q7 is a groundbreaking project for urban wood construction. Parts of the project are made entirely of wood, including the stairwells. Due to its large scale, Q7 is a pioneering project for wooden construction not just in Graz but for all of Styria. An additional deciding factor is its layout, which creates atmosphere and space between the buildings despite their scale and footprint. The mindful execution of the individual structures is especially convincing. Reininghaus Q7 has won the following awards: Holzbaupreis Steiermark 2021, Preis für beispielhaften Wohnbau 2021, klimaaktiv 2021.
