Reference projects

Wirtschaftszentrum N

One of the first passive office buildings in Austria, the Wirtschaftszentrum N won the 2009 GreenBuilding Award. The building is designed for about 200 employees. It is helping to improve the service delivered by companies close to the provincial government, including financial service providers and environmental firms, which had previously had decentralised premises.

Austrian Federal Economic Chamber

This construction project at Wiedner Hauptstrasse 63, Vienna involved comprehensive rehabilitation of the façade of the Federal Economic Chamber headquarters building, as well as relocation and comprehensive rehabilitation of the entrance area. The addition of a prestigious penthouse and major alterations to the offices were carried out without interrupting the operation of the building.

Danube University Krems

This project, which picked up the 2007 Austrian Bauherrenpreis award, transformed the university’s facilities into a world-class campus. Such was its success that further expansion phases are expected soon.

Gozzoburg, Krems

This project was honoured with the 2009 EU Prize for Cultural Heritage/Europa Nostra Award.  Architect Lukas Groh created a new modern aluminium and glass foyer as an entrance to the medieval building. The rest of the building was restored to its original state under the supervision of the Austrian Federal Office for the Care of Monuments.

Institute of Science and Technology Austria (I.S.T. Austria), Klosterneuburg

The project for the construction of the Institute of Science and Technology Austria was aimed at giving the country a world-class scientific institution and a distinctive voice in the world of top-level international research. The Lower Austrian provincial government provided a 179,000 m² site in the Maria Gugging area of Klosterneuburg.

Danube Clinic Tulln

This project received an award for “exemplary buildings” in 2008. The expert jury singled out the architectural design for particular praise. The new extensions and alterations to the Tulln Danube region provincial clinic have made it possible to accommodate the former Gugging clinic at the site, and merge it into a modern health centre.

Schloss Grafenegg

This open-air concert pavilion is a year-round attraction. The arena seats about 1,700 people. The stage is a separate, sculptural reinforced concrete building bearing a steel superstructure.  This contains a backstage area with artists’ dressing rooms, a musicians’ waiting room, sanitary facilities and building services.

Mistelbach higher technical college

Designing any school, and particularly one specialising in medical technology, is a challenge –not just because of the functional requirements but also because of the expectation that an educational building will set an example of good design.

Krems-Stein river boat terminal and World Heritage centre

A new river boat terminal and World Heritage centre has been built on the site of the existing landing stage. The facility acts as a visitors’ centre for the UNESCO Wachau World Heritage site and offers incoming tourists a first impression of the region. The building is intended to serve as a gateway to the Wachau region, and fulfil a bridging function between the towns of Krems and Melk.

Krems school centre

This new school centre, kindergarten and multi-storey car park was commissioned by Krems council and the education authorities in the area. The centre with its 32 classrooms brings together a secondary school, a pre-vocational school and a special school that were previously located at separate sites. A new kindergarten with four groups has expanded nursery education provision in Krems.

Niederösterreich Arena

The Niederösterreich Arena project, which forms the latest expansion stage of the Sportwelt NÖ sports centre, consists of a stadium, parking and other ancillary services. Funded by the federal government, the Lower Austrian provincial government and St.Pölten council, it is a single-purpose football stadium for 8,000 spectators. This was the first construction contract in Austria to be awarded by way of a complex general contractor procedure (design, engineering and execution).

2008 Tulln provincial garden show

The 2008 Lower Austrian provincial garden show, designed for at least ten years’ post-use, took shape on a 50-hectare site between the Danube, greater Tulln, the exhibition centre and the town centre. A garden centre with show gardens was created amid a wetland landscape that was carefully restored for the event.
