The Wiener Prater is a large public park in Vienna´s 2nd district. The Wurstelprater, an amusement park that is often simply called “Prater,” lies in one corner of the park and includes the Wiener Riesenrad Ferris wheel. Close to the Praterstern roundabout, three additional floors were built in an existing building. The owners of these new apartments can now enjoy beautiful city views.

The company Alu Alprem produced aluminum joinery, and MM Alprem GmbH was responsible for coordinating the works. We manufactured and installed the façade on all three floors. Top-hung windows were installed, and special hydraulic bushings were made for this project, assisting with opening and closing the windows. A peculiar aspect of this project was the very limited access for installation. The high exposure to the elements of extreme weather conditions at the top of the building complicated the completion of this project as well.
