The expansion of a building located in a Viennese “protected zone” – comprising the construction of parking spaces on the basement level, the demolition and additions to the yard wing, and the addition of another three storeys – required a profound reinforcement of the building: brickwork strengthening, the installation of reinforced concrete discs, underpinning above the parking level and strengthening of the ceilings.
On top of the newly strengthened and now earthquake-resistant building, a stepped, complexly modelled loft extension was constructed, which is generously glazed and equipped with terraces facing the courtyard.
