The housing project "Der Rosenhügel" by Berger + Parkkinen architects is located on the former site of the Rosenhügel film studios on the border between Liesing and Hietzing in Vienna. To emphasize the historical past of the site, the seven houses with 204 privately financed apartments are named after international film studios. Due to the free form of the houses, as well as the variation in the number of floors and height levels, the residential buildings offer an enormous variety with the same basic structure and economical construction method. The wide range of differentiated floor plan types is to be emphasized.

The circumferential balconies lend lightness to the structures and let the boundaries of the building blur. At the same time, they create exterior spaces with a west-south-east orientation and offer privacy from neighbors.
The apartments developed by Berger + Parkkinen are between 50 and 163 sqm in size and all have outdoor spaces in the form of a garden, terrace or balcony. The clod-like formations of the gardens around the houses create a gradation between public, semi-public and private open spaces. The residents enjoy a wellness area, a workshop or a room for family celebrations, dog owners a dog washing place. The open space in the heart of the complex is an invitation for the residents to meet and experience community.
