IVB Operational service building in Innsbruck, Austria by Peter Lorenz Ateliers

 
March 7th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

THE MAIN FEATURES OF THIS DESIGN ARE:

  • The alignment with the surrounding and the incorporation of the street space
  • The establishment of a prominent, protruding corner at the inter-section [Pastorstraße – driveway of the company premises] that highlights the entrance of the new service building. The view into the garage will be reduced significantly, giving it a technical identity through the merging of the building with the operating trams below.
  • The planting of a new grove of trees along Pastorstraße will embed the building in a park-like surrounding which aligns with the alley of existing trees along Pastorstraße. The planting will consolidate the diffluent street area.
  • The façade is characterized by the vitality of carefully matched shades of colour. The quality criteria for the façade (functionality, aesthetics and liveliness) are developed.

”The IVB is a transport company. This means it is characterized by the driving operation as well as the garage. The new administrative building is simply the service area for this workshop. As agreed in our mission statement, mutual respect and respect towards clients are the focus of our co-operation and therefore a value we aimed to incorporate into the new building. This was the leading idea throughout the planning. Shape, materials, interior and assignment of areas transport this value. The entrance is the area for our col-leagues – particularly for the drivers. The reception, lounge area, cafeteria, driving control management, human resources department and works council are located here, which are the majority of services used by our colleagues on a daily basis.

On the next two floors there are administration, planning, marketing and management sectors. The corridors and offices on all floors are characterized by the use of the same materials, whereby the covering of the original materials is avoided, wherever possible. The flooring is screed, the ceilings and many of the partitioning walls exposed concrete. The dividing walls between offices and corridors are made of profiled glass and the additional partitioning walls are formed of cement joined chipboard. Black steel cladding will be used for almost all areas requiring covering, which is also the material used for all the corridor doors.”
