The main challenge at Albertina Passage was to recreate an abandoned pedestrian underpass at the very center of Vienna into a modern dinner club for up to 300 persons. Our target was to design a club that is suitable for an elegant dinner as well as for a big party night. Hence, the design includes live music, a restaurant and a lounge. Our idea was to include these functions in one concept.

During summer 2010 the technical museum together with querkraft architekten designed a new entrance foyer and museum shop.
A modern museum service requires a correspondingly modern level of service – for this purpose space is a must. older museum buildings are challenged to expand and modernise whilst remaining attached to their existing historical structures. in the 90s the technical museum faced precisely this difficulty as it tried to gain more space for a larger entrance foyer, a new museum shop and café as well as sufficient amenities, cloakroom space and ticketing capacity. the architectural solution that was chosen in the 90s was a steel-glass box placed in front of the existing historical structure. this solution proved problematic on a few levels shortly after the opening in 1999. the foyer was dominated by large temperature fluctuations, poor acoustics and ventilation, as well as less than optimal visitor circulation.

The museum liaunig projects out on two sides over steep-sided ground, high up in the landscape.A cut through the hill marks a precise intervention in nature.
Planted into the site the new museum emerges more like a work of landart. only a small part of the outstretched museum building is visible. Cut through the hill, the main body of the museum slices athrough a densely-wooded, steep-sided embankment, providing an unparalleled view over the river drau seventy metres below.
The building cantilevers an impressive thirty metres out, over a steep bank towards the approach road – clearly visible to approaching visitors.

Seedörfl is a small collection of houses, the surrounding landscape is flat. To the northeast the federal highway B16 cuts through the fields. The two-storey folded volume of the building with its projecting snout, bedrooms on the first floor and striking perforated bands along the façade looks like a built logo. The large asphalted approach, turning and parking area and the self check-in facility in the open foyer give the building something of the flair of a motel. Rooms – from a size of only ten square meters – are reduced on a minimum which doesn’t feel small. The materials are reduced to a minimum too. The bathroom is screened by glass panes with a sliding door. As a result the red three-dimensional bathroom strip becomes an integral part of the room. Guests receive their key when they want – on the early morning or late night.

The architecture studio heri & salli from Vienna conceived for one part of an already existing house in Austria/Klagenfurt a façade design made of perforated sheets of aluminum. Already existing views were picked up and subjected to a dynamic appearance. The object was to create a homogenous appearance, to reinforce and underline the presence of the existing cube and at the same time conserve functions like the view to the outside through the facade.

‘Shell & Shadow’: a unique architectural language of fluidity inspired by natural ice formations, for stations along Innsbruck’s northern chain of mountains. Lightweight organic roof structures float on concrete plinths, their soft shapes and contours creating an artificial landscape that describes the movement and circulation within. The brief called for the design of four stations along cable railway tracks leading to Innsbruck’s northern chain of mountains. Each station had its own unique context, topography, altitude and circulation and adaptation to these specific site conditions was critical to the design approach – while maintaining a coherent overall architectural language.

In an aging society and due to the tendency in the industrialized west of extended lifetimes, the typology of nursing and retiree homes and its architectural manifestations increasingly gain importance. This happens especially in regards to these buildings’ relevance as people’s last home in life. In Austria, the public sector, in this case the state of Lower-Austria as the client for this nursing home project, accepts this challenge.

In the year 1800, a devastating fire occurred in Linz during which also the Southern wing of the “Linzer castle“ fell victim to the flames. The castle on the hill between the old city and the Danube lost its city-facing wing and, therefore, its presence within the urban fabric. Since 1965, the castle has been home to the Upper Austrian national museum. The requirement for additional and large exhibition space led to the new construction of the Southern wing.
