Albert Wimmer Architects complete the Elf_zwei residential building in Vienna 

In Vienna`s residential complex Monte Laa urban planning is realized by a captivating interplay between prosperity and the generous freedom of the surrounding open spaces. The amalgamation of leisure-time and residential functionality has been effortlessly crafted, and so creates the key feature of the elf_zwei complex: the Pleasure Strip. An architectural fairytale is told underneath the colourful, dancing columns of the ground floor Pleasure Strip, the spacious dimensions of which offer not only a place for relaxation or play, but the sense of community afforded by its communal facilities. It also serves as an avenue between in- and outdoors as its 4,50m ceiling evokes feelings of liberation. The layout of the complex has provided 78 bright apartments, including several two-story units. Being of the highest technical quality and artistic innovation, elf_zwei realizes gorgeous living in its truest sense as well as providing very affordable living space.
