Saturday, June 9th, 2012

Article source: Zechner & Zechner ZTGmbH

The urban railway system between Vienna´s centre and the airport got redesigned. Several stations got new configurations and cladding designs. Because Vienna´s International Airport in Schwechat gets converted and expanded at the moment, the underground station of the local train line S7, which connects Vienna´s centre with the airport had to be modified in various terms.

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

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.

Di Piu in Vienna, Austria by Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Article source: Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

The design principle at the restaurant located in a downtown shopping mall in Vienna was to avoid establishing a spectacle located in a place of excessive percipience. First and foremost the people, the excellent food, the taste should be percepted not the design. The new skin, the visible layer, consists of modificated, recombined and low priced materials which are quite unusual for the use in an gastronomic environment. They receive new haptic and optic characteristics through it’s large scale adjustment.

Albertina Passage in Vienna, Austria by Sohne &ampPartner Architekten

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Article source: Sohne & Partner Architekten

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.

TMW technical museum Vienna in Austria by querkraft

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

Article source: querkraft

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.

Hotel Caldor in Vienna, Austria by Söhne & Partner Architects

Monday, March 19th, 2012

Article source: Söhne & Partner Architects

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.

VILLA S in Vienna, Austria by buerger katsota architects

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: buerger katsota architects

The scheme aims at accommodating and negotiating the differing and ever changing needs of an extended family. A generous, skylight staircase becomes the gallery of the house and the core of the home linking the two dwellings. Living areas of different sizes and acoustic qualities are designed to cater for music events and social gatherings of various scales. Between the ‘built’ and the ‘un-built’ of the lush urban garden, frames, platforms, niches and extrusions, create intricate relations and unexpected perspectives.
