Project Information

Attic Adapt 2050 - Modular Attic-Extension-Systems for Future Building Adaptation

In the year 2030, the City of Vienna will have approximately 2 million inhabitants. The current Viennese urban development areas (Central Station, Seestadt Aspern, North- and North-West-Railway Station etc.) cannot meet the future demand for living space. Despite the expected growth and expansion, the high quality of life in Vienna's inner city areas should be maintained. One of the most important sustainable development strategies is the densification of the existing building stock through attic-extension (new apartments in a central location, social intermix, high quality housing, value enhancement of existing building stock, etc.).

The project Attic Adapt 2050 deals with the systematic attic-extension in the course of extensive renovations of buildings constructed between the years 1955 – 1970. The goal is to develop a lightweight, wooden based attic-extension-system with industrially prefabricated components and a standardized static system in the form of a simple "modular system", which also integrates renewable energy technologies.
