Building Construction General contractor
As general planner and general contractor, Jäger Bau GmbH built a residential development for the Vorarlberg non-profit housing and residential development company known as Vorarlberger gemeinnützige Wohnungsbau- und Siedlungsgesellschaft m.b.H. VOGEWOSI, consisting of two main buildings.
Both blocks have four storeys and are slightly staggered, situated at the eastern boundary of the site. The two buildings together accommodate a total of 32 apartments (4 four-room apartments, 18 three-room apartments and 10 two-room apartments) over a total area of about 2,200 m².
The structures were built as a kind of “yoked team”. The residents have access to the apartments via a central staircase with lifts.
Each apartment has a terrace or balcony. All the apartments basically consist of a hallway with a cloakroom area, a storage room, a bathroom, a bedroom and a combined kitchen-diner-lounge. Some of the larger apartments also have a second bedroom. The two passive houses were built in a solid construction (concrete or masonry).
A thermal insulation system (ETICS) with, for the most part, brightly coloured finishing render, was applied to the exterior walls. The windows were combined to form window bands by the use of coloured, dark-brown areas of render. Both buildings are connected by an underground car park which also features bicycle store rooms, basement compartments for all the homes, washing and laundry rooms as well as the utility rooms.
The overall construction volume amounted to approx. 15,000 m³.
