suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Jenna BOLINO: This housing/spa project is located catty-corner to one of the largest public squares in Vienna, Austria known as Stephansplatz surrounding the city’s Gothic cathedral, Stephansdom. It addresses the street with a subtle, but differentiated façade in comparison with the surrounding neighborhood. The aluminum louvers create a sleek, clean façade which run parallel to each other on the street side and are shifted and bent on the inner edge to allow for privacy and views at different parts of the housing program inside.
