Competition Reininghaus- Quarter 3/Graz
2nd competition stage
The BWSG and Schönere Zukunft Styria invited to an open Austrian-wide two-stage competition for the realisation of buildings for multi-functional use on the area of quarter 3 of Graz‐Reininghaus.
The concept of ACE Group is based on a clear separation between two attic floors with half-open free spaces above each – for roof gardens, playgrounds – as well as belowintended for various purposes. The first two floors above the ground will accommodate trade,craft,offices andservices in longer east-west oriented buildings stretching over the whole plot. Due to the building structure, gaps are created leaving space for small scale use.
On top of the two-floor plinth area along the esplanade,there are seven floors of loosely structured,as if selectivelytransparent cubic capacity with numerous noses and recesses of the façade for residential use with very efficient multiple way-access to public infrastructure. The north-south orientation of thehousing unit supports good ventilation of the quarter.
Plot area: 23.074 sqm
