The impressive panorama view from the roof of the House of Integration in Vienna becomes a metaphor for new perspectives. In a rooftop garden various niches and a library create spaces of peace and relaxation amongst a floating landscape of baulks and climbing plants. Whilst a small kitchen garden enables residents to cultivate their native plants and herbs below, a stage and tribune space high above the scenery creates an advanced platform for the house to engage with the city on a social and cultural level.
