The number 1 on the ropeway world market Doppelmayr is planning a new corporate headquarter in Wolfurt (Vorarlberg, Austria). The architectural competition was won by AllesWirdGut Architects. Construction starts in 2014 and is scheduled to be completed in mid-2016. The urban planning concept of the AWG design shows a complex separated into several individual buildings. The jury statement says that “despite different scales and heights of the individual building parts the result is a convincing whole of high significance and recognition value.”
Office areas of different sizes are grouped along an inner backbone where all communal areas are situated. This interior spatial zone with the many different views and perspectives that it permits, inside and out, affords user a high-quality spatial experience, which makes for the special character of the design.
The statement of the jury says, “The building concept is highly unconventional for an office building. The project has the potential to create a very special work sphere, a building in which communication and collaboration are in the foreground but which also enables concentration and quiet working.”Location: Vorarlberg, Austria Architect: AllesWirdGut
