At Vienna’s Laaer-Berg-Staße in the 10th district two residential towers (65 m and 100 m in height respectively) are being erected.
In the planning process Weatherpark developed solutions for a pleasant wind climate for open areas around the two towers in close co-operation with the client. Initially, wind measurements were taken at the Porr-High-rise building on the neighbouring property. Then, flow simulations for the different development phases were carried out.
The purpose of the wind comfort study was to ensure pleasant wind comfort in the entrance areas and public passage-ways as well as sufficient wind protection for the adjacent school and the nearby park.
