What requirements does an apartment have to meet so that we can feel comfortable?

Three buildings with six staircases are situated in two rows in an east-west direction. A line in front of the south consisting of two structures is lowered on the slope side in order to guarantee the full view from the structure to the north. The east-west orientation of the building structures ensures, on the one hand, the view for all apartments in the direction of the valley and, on the other hand, the tanning of all apartments facing south.

The location of the buildings, which is topographically adapted to the existing hill, creates quiet courtyards with private gardens on differentiated levels, to which a children's playground and shared green areas are assigned. This arrangement enables and promotes the formation of small neighborhoods.

All apartments are oriented towards a spacious balcony or terrace via generous windows on the south side and thus form natural protection against the steep summer sun, the warming winter sun can shine deep into the apartments. In addition, there is a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains and the Inn Valley from every apartment. There are private gardens in front of the apartments on the ground floor.

The individual house types are accessible via bright, spacious staircases. One, two and four-room apartments are available as apartment types. There is one parking space for each apartment and one additional visitor parking space for every second apartment in the shared underground car park. In addition, each apartment has its own storage room in the basement, where drying rooms are also provided.

Strollers and bicycle storage facilities, garbage rooms, etc. are also sufficiently available. All entrances to the house are equipped with a covered forecourt.

The architecture blends self-confidently into the image of this highly visible and exposed location with its clear design language and the use of noble, durable materials. With the construction of this residential complex, Neue Heimat Tirol is again setting new architectural accents in order to be able to offer future residents a pleasant atmosphere.
