KaDeWe Vienna is not an icon but rather an architectural device that establishes new urban connections and public spaces through its own internal organisation.
The main program components are split in two volumes, retail up front and hotel in the rear, between we created a green passage that invites people up to a series of public roof-gardens. The gardens range in quality and character – from tree groves to sun decks – generating unprecedented views from all sides of the building onto the city.
