The staff residence for employees of the City of Vienna was built as the urban dominant in connection with the elongated station building of the U3 underground line and as an addition to the listed ensemble on the former factory premises of the Austria Tabakwerke.
Due to the high traffic favourability, a densification of the area was positively assessed after urban development studies and as compensation extensive public areas in the form of squares and passages were created.
The 25 storeys of the building contain the entrance hall, commercial areas and common rooms on the base and ground floor as well as on the first floor.
Starting on the 2nd floor, there are 280 residential units of 30 m each on 20 levels, as well as 60 double units. In the technical and attic floors, there are not only rooms for building services but also a large common room with a south-facing terrace.
The Klinotel was awarded the title of Climate Alliance Company 2000 due to its innovative energy concept.
