Messecarree B is a ten-storey student dorm in the second district of Vienna. The shared facilities (Learning Lounge, seminar rooms) as well as commercial premises (Restaurants, Start-Up offices, Fitness Center) are located on two elevated basement levels of the building.
These basement levels are spanned by redsidential floors and can be entered either via the plaza or a surrounding green landscape.
Three staircases as well as elevators are placed in the center and on either side of the building with the main entrance on the north-eastern side connecting the plaza level.
The inner and outer staircases are inserted through the glazed fassace and connect both sides with each other.

In contrast the southern and centered staircases lead straight to the upper levels with rooms organised along a double loaded corridor. All endings of the central corridor are provided with windows and are therefore exposed to natural daylight.
The facade is executed in a post and beam system with a rear-ventiladed facade along the wall panels.
The penthouse-type ninth level and the rooftop level clear space for terraces.
