The library rises at the centre of a new campus – forming a polygonal block with both inclined and straight edges – the latter separating as they move inwards to become curvilinear – generating an interior canyon serving as a central plaza, with all other elements housed within two encasing spatial ‘ribbons’.

SOLID architecture was commissioned to design the showroom of office furniture manufacturer .Bene in a newly erected building at no. 4–8 Neutorgasse in Vienna. With a floor area of 1,000 m² the showroom is located at ground floor level and forms a band that runs along the facade. Bene also uses the first floor and a part of the second floor as offices.

The intention was to offer visitors an interestingly varied tour through the world of Bene and at the same time to create a place with its own identity and an unmistakable character.

FK Austria Wien Training Academy in Vienna, Austria by Franz zt gmbh + Atelier Mauch gmbh

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Article source: Franz zt gmbh + Atelier Mauch gmbh

a sporting challenge

The academy training grounds of the junior teams of Austria Vienna – one of the most traditional football clubs in Austria – lies close to the ‘Franz Horr Stadium’. they include a training hall and three grass pitches. the construction budget was extremely tight and the construction time limited to six months, and the handover date after completion a strict requirement in order to obtain the license of the Austrian Football League. Vienna building regulations set a maximum building height of 4.5 m and so the 7,0 m required clearance height in the training hall created an inevitable consequence: the entire building had to be lowered half below ground.

The block perimeter development is made up of two volumes, one facing onto Am Hof and the other towards Freyung.

Suspended Glazed Bridge (Lugner Bridge) in Vienna, Austria by Aneta Bulant – Kamenova and Klaus Wailzer (designed using AutoCAD)

Friday, October 7th, 2011

Article source: Aneta Bulant – Kamenova and Klaus Wailzer

Project description: The presented object is may be the world–wide first fully glazed suspended bridge. The bridge takes the pedestrians, coming from the historical Otto Wagner metro station up along an escalator to a horizontal platform 8,5 meters over the most frequented boulevard in Vienna, the `Gürtel`. From there one can reach the cinema and shopping center “Lugner City”. Through series of interconnected buildings this multifunctional complex forms a strong pedestrian axis which reaches up to the nearby City Sport Hall and represents a much frequented urban connection. Being the first entering element of this axis the bridge plays the role of a landmark for that big complex. We decided to make it dynamic, light and attractive, like a funny flying object, which hovers over the pulsing city.

Wohnzimmer House in Vienna, Austria by Caramel architekten zt gmbh

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

Article source: Caramel Architekten

A family with one child and maybe more to come dreams of moving from their apartment in the middle of the city to a house at the periphery with plenty of green. They envision children playing in the grass, the parents and their friends sitting amongst them, and all around nothing but green, trees, pure nature. The purchased property is a 500-square-meter plot, a grassy meadow with trees. Four levels, three above ground and one below, are to yield a total of 300 m² of living space.

(TOO) MANY COLUMNS in Vienna, Austria by Stephan Sobl

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Article source: Stephan Sobl

The epitome of a Hypostyle Hall in my project is a field of massive and fragile columns that define a variation of spatial and volumetric interiors of the terminal. Denser areas of the field create intimate spaces and become areas to rest whereas less dens areas are circulation routes and contain architectural programs.

NEU 31 in Vienna, Austria by SUPERBLOCK ZT GmbH

The concept of the overlapping spatial structure, open to the outside as well as inside, with symbiotically conjoined resitential and office accomodation units is not merely a lip service here, it runs throughout all parts of the building – the spatial solution appeared that beneficial to the architects to occupy it by themselves.
