1st prize for competition entry "Green Cloud" | Vienna (AUT)

Kieran Fraser Landscape Design won the 1st prize for a high quality residential project in Vienna's 13th district Hietzing. Five international landscape architect's participated in the invited competition, tendered by the developer BAI Bauträger Austria Immobilien GmbH. The architectural preliminary design by Dietrich | Untertrifaller comprises one renovated historical building and three new buildings with 50-60 condominiums ranging from approx. 60 to 260m². The mature tree population on site creates a special atmosphere and makes a great starting point for the project. Our concept Green Cloud embeds the buildings into a partly classical and partly modern park with voluminous, space-forming plantations of evergreen conifers, shrubs and grasses, creating diverse open spaces but also privacy and intimacy for the residents.

Project "Villen im Cottage" completed

Villen im Cottage (Vienna) - a residential project we have been working on since late 2013 - is completed. Our landscape design divides the outdoor facilities into two parts on two levels, making best possible use of the sloped terrain. The upper area comprises terraced private gardens, the lower area offers all residents a semi-public space of diverse qualties and urban flair. The plain and ‚quiet‘ design creates a harmonious balance between differentiated spaces and a uniform appearance. View the complete project on our website here.

Presentation of Park Design in Kalba (UAE)

In April we presented our preliminary park design to the manucipality of Kalba in Sharjah (United Arab Emirates). The city park located on the coastline of the Gulf of Oman is conceived as a crystallization of the surrounding landscape and offers a variety of recreation areas and activities. The design was positively assessed by the local authorities and now submitted for further approvals. Thanks to our partners Handassia Architects & Engineers we also gained deeper insights into professional networks and the urban development of Dubai. View excerpts of the project on our website here.

Lectures and Concept Design Workshops in Egypt

Within the framework of our activities as Landscape Design Consultants to the Quality Education Support Programme (QESP) in Egypt, we currently give lectures and organize design workshops that mediate our landscape design quidelines developed for the project in 2013. Architecture and schoolyards of approximately 120 schools are developed in association with the Egyptian General Authority for Educational Buildings (GAEB), international architects and designers, and local design consultants. Design components, which have shown to significantly improve the learning environment will be integrated into the design standards of GAEB.

QESP began in 2013 and is to be completed in 2017. The project is financed by the KfW Development Bank and executed by the Egyptian Ministry of Education. Aiming at improving the quality of education and learning environments, QESP provides a holistic approach to preparing schools for quality accreditation, a main target of the national education strategy. The project is not only focused on infrastructure. Extensive social components accompany the process, such as awareness programs, workshops, motivational training at village level, teacher training, capacity building in schools and lower administrative levels of the Egyptian Ministry of Education. This approach is further supported through decentralized and participatory analysis and design, transferring responsibility to lower levels of administration, village structures and local population.
The photos above were taken during a concept design workshop in October 2014, organized by GOPA Consultants and supervised by Aldinger Architekten and Kieran Fraser Landscape Design. The workshop results were presented in 2 of the schools involved in the programme. View excerpts of project on our website here.
