Wohnbau Kollmayergasse 18
best architects 09 gold
The street and courtyard side is a double-walled facade with exposed brickwork, sintered bricks manganese brown. Large, deep recesses and cuts divide the angular structure, the at times arrhythmic window alignment is consistent with the inner functionality. The massive brick facade and light stucco of the living space create ambivalent tension between inside and outside. The wall and floor of the house entrance is also made of bricks, a brick wall separates the tenants’ and private garden, creating a spacial extension of the brick structure horizontally into the inner area at the back.
