Three towers in dialogue with each other.
Dieter Henke founded the architectural practice Henke Schreieck Architekten in 1982 together with Marta Schreieck. Both founders studied architecture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. This duo of outstanding architects has since made a name for itself with high-quality, forward-looking projects which all share the fundamental value of improving the quality of life. The ground-breaking Erste Campus at the Vienna main station, the distinctive OMV headquarters in the Prater and the stylish K47 at the Franz-Josefs-Kai are just a few of their works. Their buildings have won numerous awards including the City of Vienna Prize and the Adolf Loos Architecture Prize.
They won the invited competition for the TrIIIple project with their idea of the “three towers” which enabled them to develop floor plans offering maximum flexibility. From the widest variety of office organization systems to the most diverse range of living concepts, everything is possible.
The three towers stand in dialogue with each other due to their sculptural form. This creates a unique architectural whole. One special feature is the large open spaces which have been created. These will be used as communal terraces and offer the residents considerable additional value. With this development Henke Schreieck has been particularly interested in the contrast between proximity and distance. The proximity of the towers to each other creates a certain tension which contrasts with the experience of the spaciousness of the city – in the view of the green of the Prater and the 1st District.
