Fallow land in Vienna, Austria by PLAYstudio + YES studio

Thursday, June 21st, 2018

Article source: PLAYstudio + YES studio

“Dealing with Infrastructures” was the title of the thematic area under which the organizers of Europan 7 placed the site located in Vienna; in fact it was probably a kind of paradigmatic case study: a triangular plot, placed in the outskirts of the city, surrounded by a heavy traffic way, an elevated underground line and crossed by a middle tension power line… anything else? Actually it was the typical “leftover” ground generated by the trace of the infrastructures surrounding it. The social housing developers that arrived before us had already built the area, but they left the “rest” waiting for a second opportunity. This “rest” was not just a real estate opportunity, but an opportunity to generate new urban life in a neighborhood placed in the periphery of the city without a clear representative image. The Perfektastrasse 58 site was full of opportunities waiting to be discovered… to recognize them was the beginning of the project.  Due to the visibility given by the underground line, the plot was already part of the image of the city for a huge number of Viennese people in their way to the city center, so the project had to operate with it. Being close to Perfektastrasse U-bahn station pointed the plot as a proper place to increase the housing density, bringing more and more people and life into the area, following the theories proposed by the Transit Oriented Development. The plot had conditions to evolve into a new urban public space, a transit place in the way to the U6 station, but also a public space where celebrate collectively the everyday life. The absence of buildings on the other side of the elevated underground line allowed excellent views from the site to the landscape of Vienna when placed 8 meter high from the ground level. By last, the green condition of the plot while waiting for a “second opportunity”, gave an image to the context, but mainly a biodiversity, that could and should be preserved.

Wolke 7 in Grafenegg, Austria by tnE Architects

Monday, June 4th, 2018

Article source: tnE Architects

The “Wolke 7” catering pavilion in Grafenegg Castle Garden (Lower Austria) by the next ENTERprise Architects has been awarded the AIT Award in the category gastronomy.

A decade ago tnE Architects created the Wolkenturm open air stage, one of Austria’s most impressive concert stages and the central performance venue of the annual Grafenegg Festival. In 2015 the architects were commissioned by Grafenegg Kulturbetriebsgesellschaft m.b.H. to redesign the location which is used for catering to events and situated on the path between the Castle Tavern and the Wolkenturm. The AIT Award is the second major honour received by the project after last year’s award of the Client Prize of the Central Association of Austrian Architects.

“Wolke 7”, a place for culinary highlights and coming together in an open-air atmosphere, adds a new dimension to the synergy between the traditional and the contemporary in Grafenegg which reaches far beyond the catering infrastructure.

Gebrüder Weiss Head Office Lauterach A in Austria by CUKROWICZ NACHBAUR ARCHITEKTEN ZT GMBH

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

Article source: CUKROWICZ NACHBAUR ARCHITEKTEN ZT GMBH

The new headquarters for Austria’s oldest transport and logistics firm is based on the idea of a continuous car park. The new structure has been located along the site boundary slightly away from the road, thereby embedding the new building within the activity of the distribution centre while distinguishing it from the neighbouring residential area. In response to this heterogeneous urban context, Cukrowicz Nachbaur developed a precise, planar two-storey office building arranged around inner courtyards which harmonises with its setting in style and scale. The company’s values and global stature are also manifested in the new architecture. By raising the headquarters off the ground, the offices are afforded unobstructed views over Gebrüder Weiss’s characteristic orange fleet. This sense of elevation expresses the importance of the building itself as the organisation’s headquarters. A grand two-part ramp leads from the entrance to the main floors. Within the two upper office levels, mezzanines and transparency are used to emphasise the non-hierarchical corporate structure, promote internal communication and encourage spontaneous exchanges among staff. This generous interior atmosphere represents a spatial experience for all its users and the architectural embodiment of the aspirations of Gebrüder Weiss. The building’s point-based wayfinding system is a metaphor for goods in transit and GW’s worldwide network. Its design scheme conveys a sense of self-assured internationality.

Article source: Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architects ZT GmbH

The Omicron Company, a world leader in the electric energy sector, wanted to enlarge its headquarters in Klaus in Vorarlberg. The ambition was to implement an innovative workplace design. The structural engineering of the new building was designed with 200 workstations, set along the existing building frame.

The framework was made with reinforced concrete and the facade composed of prefabricated wooden modules. Six internal courts, opening onto a central passage on either side, bring transparency and natural light into the centre of the building. The offices all give onto a corridor or a terrace.Sculpture spaces punctuate the circulation, offering several meeting or relaxation spots.

In der Wiesen Süd in Vienna, Austria by Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten

Friday, May 25th, 2018

Article source: Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten

The housing complex In der Wiesen Süd consists of five buildings arranged on the site in order to create a serene environment for the inhabitants. The area opens wide towards the north and closes more densely towards the south, where it allows visual perspectives on the street.
The group in the southern area is developed by ARTEC architects, while Dietrich | Untertrifaller designed the northern part with three tower-like building structures. In the green space to the north, these higher buildings form a central and quiet area for the residents. The two six-storey buildings take the shape of a flattened hexagon around a hollow core. The numerous balconies offer each apartment different views of the park and the city. The rooms on the ground floor and on the garden level are home to small shops, workshops and offices. An atrium is placed at the core of the building and brings natural light into the access zones. The roof accommodates some community facilities of the residential complex, as well as private gardens.

House D in Dornbirn, Austria by Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten

Article source: Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten

Stüben, a steep mountain plot above Dornbirn, offers views over the Vorarlberg Rhine Valley, the alpine landscape from the First to the Swiss mountains and in the northwest over Lake Constance. The house captures the panorama with its largely glazed living area on the top floor, and in its formal language it creates references to the architecture of traditional farmhouses.

Located on a mountain overlooking Bregenz, House D′s open floorplans and generous glazing allow for magnificent views over the surrounding countryside and Lake Constance.
