Wohnbebauung Valkenauerstrasse, Salzburg, Austria

Invited competition for 90 units of medium-density housing on a triangular site adjacent to Austrian railway lines. The conceptual approach was to create a buffer to the severe rail noise by positioning the footprint of the building and all of its living units around shared courtyards, oriented to maximize sunlight in the units and green spaces, while the building’s corridors act to block the noise.
