Babenberger Passage in Vienna, Austria by Soehne & Partner Architekten

Friday, December 14th, 2012

Article source: Soehne & Partner Architekten

The bold idea to revive a former pedestrian underpass which was lined by abandoned shops and once connected Babenberger Straße and Burggarten was rewarded by a venturesome client who was seeking an extraordinary place for a new club. From street level, only four descending glass staircases are visible. Three of them were recycled into lighting sculptures featuring large opaque light cylinders.

The New Gerngross in Vienna, Austria by LOVE architecture and urbanism ZT GmbH

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

The design concept for the renovation of the interior of the department store followed one main principle: the central atrium should become the store’s new nucleus and the central orientation point of the building because this is where the horizontal and vertical visual axes and the main building access are united.

GZS – Pflegewohnhaus Simmering in Vienna, Austria by Josef Weichenberger architects + Partner

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

Article source: Josef Weichenberger architects + Partner

In the heart of Vienna’s 11th district, on a lot densely vegetated by an old tree population, a new game-changing geriatrics center was to be realized.

Central idea:

High-quality dwelling for care-dependent senior citizens in the comforting atmosphere of a green oasis – rather then the common, sterile, hospital-style atmosphere of geriatrics centers as they used to be.

A three story rooftop extension was added to an existing Wilhelminian-times house.

Plans of the four new spacious apartments – one of them a maisonette – were developed from a complex set of geometric reference grids, which were derived from the shape of the irregular 5-street intersection of Operngasse and Margeretenstraße in vienna.

Generationen Wohnen Am Muehlgrund in Vienna, Austria by ARTEC Architekten

Sunday, September 16th, 2012

Article source: ARTEC Architekten

The Vienna rapid-transit line known as U2 originates at Karlsplatz and heads north, crossing the Danube. In Stadlau the tracks are elevated and pass over a train station. Just to the north of this convergence lies the Stadlau rapid-transit station. The tracks continue on, turning to the east and still elevated – at a height of 12 metres in this segment, and each direction supported separately. Parallel and to the south of the elevated tracks, at a distance of 8 to 12 metres from them, is the site of the 7-storey, 90-metre-long, 15-metre-wide building – the allowable massing determined by an urban design competition. The bar-shaped building, with only a minimal strip of land surrounding it, screens the low-slung structures to the south – also just recently completed – from the tracks.

“The Town Musicians of Bremen as Terrace House”

Analogous to the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tale The Town Musicians of Bremen (whose main characters are a donkey, a dog, a cat, and a rooster), this reinterpretation of terrace houses involves stacking different apartment types atop one another.

Hotel Topazz in Vienna, Austria by BWM Architekten und Partner

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Article source: BWM Architekten und Partner

The Vienna-based architecture firm BWM Architekten und Partner and Michael Manzenreiter have created a hotel on a 153m2 corner plot near Hoher Markt Square – a hotel that draws attention to itself while at the same time enhancing the historical fabric of the city centre with its originality. Hotel Topazz opened its doors in April 2012.

The building draws its height reference from the long row of buildings on Hoher Markt Square and leads its upper border via a distinctive rounded corner into Kramergasse. In this way, it shows its reverence for the previous building, whose facade was also characterised by a bold, rounded projection.

Inside Fashion Store in Vienna, Austria by Söhne & Partner Architects

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Article source: Söhne & Partner Architects

A 100m² shop presents fashion in a discreet but appealing way.

It was the designer’s intention to create a restrained and straight room in order to make it an eye-catcher for the Neubaugasse in Vienna. Thus, people who are passing by should be guided into the store. The colour turquoise directs the customers through the shop while the interior is mainly white and sober in order to present the fashion at the best. Big mirror surfaces make the room seemingly bigger.

The joint venture KOOP and INNOCAD from Graz emerged as winners in the 2010 Architecture competition for Microsoft’s headquarter in Vienna, Austria.

On the basis of Microsoft’s Work Place Advantage Concept (WPA), the project team was able to work in close collaboration with the Microsoft project team during the subsequent project realization phase, the team of architects assumed responsibility for the overall design of the new Microsoft working environment as construction supervisors and project managers. This allowed the total project-schedule to be as quick as 14 months (from tender to finalization).
