Although pressed by such a regime Under such regime the required massive statics could still be designed in a sparkling and elegant way, creating a popular public zone upon the river Salzach. An infrastructure was transformed to a social sculpture.

TIWAG POWER STATION CONTROL CENTRE WITH VISITOR CENTRE in Tirol, Austria by Bechter Zaffignani Architekten

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

Article source: Bechter Zaffignani Architekten

The new building for the power station control centre of Tiroler Wasserkraft AG in Silz is a massive, tower-like, free-standing building. The dominant building on the site was and still remains the old turbine building. Various additions reduced the impact made by this building, with the result that the high-energy processes on the power station site were no longer externally legible. Through the forma idiom it employs the new building attempts to depict these processes.

Ballhaus in Graz, Austria by HoG architektur

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Article source: HoG architektur

The new residential building Stadthaus Ballhausgasse fills a long-time void on this street in the historic city centre of Graz, Austria. The street facade interprets the design principals of the late 19th century using a contemporary language. The plasticity created by a game of light and shadow on the cornices, protruding windows and surrounding frames, as well as their arrangement, is achieved by the absorption and continuation of these elements in the new mirror-effect facade. A three-dimensional appearance, in the form of slightly inclined triangular surfaces, emerges and links the different cornice heights of the neighbouring buildings, thus making the reduced number of storeys, when compared to the late 19th century buildings, less clearly recognisable. The result is a differentiated interaction between facade and window surfaces on several levels, which reveal new details from different perspectives. As a representative view, reminiscent of the end of the 19th century, the street facade complex design and higher expenditure on materials contrasts with the unadorned courtyard facade.

Article source: franz zt gmbh Architekten 

Old becomes new
The task comprised restructuring and extending the old school for forest wardens from the 1970s in order to create a contemporary educational institution. the old residential wing was demolished because of the building’s structure and its low ceiling height. the concrete rubble was used as subgrade for the new building. The classroom wing and the gym hall could be preserved and were expanded by another set of classrooms and a large gym hall. the four building parts are grouped equitably around the new one-storey centre of the school.
