Tower Zeltweg in Austria by Zechner & Zechner ZT GmbH

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Article source: Zechner & Zechner ZT GmbH

The condition of the structure and technology of the existing building, as well as the introduction of the Eurofighter by the Austrian defence forces, necessitated the construction of a new air traffic control tower and a service building for fire brigade, winter service and rescue. The decision to combine the tower and sheds led to the creation of a ‘standing’ part and ‘reclining’ part of the building. The two elements enter into a dialogue with each other, the ‘foot’, consisting of fire brigade area and base, confronts the 45m tower. The epitrochoid ground plan is a result of the main lines of sight to the runway.

This allowed the total project-schedule to be as quick as 14 months (from tender to finalization).

Meeting Hall Gosdorf in Styria, Austria by HOFRICHTER-RITTER Architects

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Article source: HOFRICHTER-RITTER Architects

In comparison to the local surroundings, the distinctive architecture of the hall marks the attempt to provide a new highlight in a highly heterogeneous and, in terms of scale, non-homogeneous structure of a rural settlement. The hall has been deliberately designed as a venue for everyone; it stands apart from its neighbouring buildings and almost looks like a UFO that has just landed.

Spittelau Viaducts Housing Project in Vienna, Austria by Zaha Hadid Architect

Sunday, June 3rd, 2012

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architect

A landmark project completed as part of a waterside revitalization project – our three-part structure, comprising apartments, offices and artists’ studios, woven through, around and over the arched bays of a disused railway viaduct. Our buildings interact playfully with the viaduct, creating new exterior spaces and vistas.

As part of an initiative undertaken by the City of Vienna to revitalize the Wiener Guertel, a neglected urban hinterland which traditionally marked the ‘dividing line’ between indigenous Viennese and immigrant communities, we designed and constructed the Spittelau Viaducts Housing Project.

Mochi Restaurant in Vienna, Austria by Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Article source: Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

The story of the two Mochi founders roots in learning how to cook with Pierre Gagnaire and Jean- François Piège in Paris while the other directed BMW World’s restaurant in Munich. Their vision was to create a space where people and ingredients could meet on the highest level of atmosphere and quality. Beyond regular parameters of star cuisine and slick architecture a space should be created challenging a next level of authentic encounter.

URBANAUTS | STREET LOFTS in VIENNA, AUSTRIA by Christian Knapp & Jonathan Lutter

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

Article source: Christian Knapp & Jonathan Lutter

Authentic experience has become an important value to urban travellers. Individual impression instead of mainstream sightseeing is what motivates modern tourists today to explore major cities. A new hotel concept now offers the infrastructure for trips off the beaten track.

The idea is simple and convincing. Due to its proximity to the city life Vienna’s ground floor zone symbolises an area of unique urban character. At the same time massive vacancies of city shops urge for their revitalisation. URBANAUTS bridges both aspects using vacant boutiques as authentic habitat for travellers. Former shops become central hotel rooms – URBANAUTS Street Lofts.

The concept is unique. Hotel is no longer regarded in terms of a self-sufficient building. Based on the theory of the horizontal hotel it stretches out over the city. Fragmentation is the keyword. Rooms are spread within a district, adding up to segments in different parts of the city.

A quiet oasis right in the middle of the city centre. Entered directly from the street the lofts offer a most private and discreet space right next to where city life happens. Spacious and comfortably furnished they create a new category of Boutique Lofts among the family of Boutique Hotels. Their strong connection to the city is always sensible through the art work of local artists who are invited to account for the past of the loft.
