The Barcode, nearing completion!

Nearing completion! One of our projects at the joint site of the University Hospital Vienna and the Medical University of Vienna – The Barcode Office Tower – is nearing completion. Originally built as a staff residence in the 1960s, the tower has now been completely rebuilt and refurbished to the highest standards of modern working and converted into an office tower for the Vienna Healthcare Association, the University Hospital Vienna, the Medical University of Vienna and VAMED. Completion of the forecourt and the photovoltaic system on the entire south-facing façade is still under way. The occupation of the new office tower is almost complete. We wish all employees on site a good arrival and settling in to the new office space!

To review and read up on: audacity architecture talks 2023 (german)

This year, as part of the audacity architecture talks 2023, we here at Architects Collective have been focusing a lot on the question, "Do we care? Do we really care?" – considering the challenge of how and where we now plan living spaces in a timely manner for a growing number of people, especially those with care needs. So how can we use urban and spatial planning to create sufficient incentives for social interaction in preventative residential areas that include not only the function of housing, but also health promotion through community building that reduces the risk of dementia and depression?

We would like to recommend the permanently available video recording and the follow-up report to review and read up on (press release) ->>> audacity architecture talk 2023

Martini-Clinic Hamburg, shortly before completion!

We are very happy! After four years of construction, the Martini-Clinic Hamburg was officially inaugurated on November 8th. Our joint ARGE project with HWP Planungsgesellschaft Stuttgart is nearing completion, marking a major milestone on the way to commissioning. The ceremonial handover of the keys at the Universitätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) took place in the presence of around 200 guests, including former patients. Clinical operations are scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2024 once the medical equipment has been installed. The seven-storey prostate center with 17,000 square meters of gross floor area and 100 beds on four wards is the world's number one in the treatment and research of prostate cancer, and at the same time a mainstay of regional healthcare. The Martini-Clinic treats around 5,000 outpatients and 2,700 inpatients every year. 2,500 prostate operations are performed each year. A new home for excellent medicine with the best possible therapy and maximum preservation of quality of life, and with optimized patient management, will soon be launched. More to come!

Kick-off for the start of construction! Ein Viertel Grün.

Now things are really getting underway: the ground-breaking ceremony on the former stadium site in Wiener Neustadt took place at the end of October. Ein Viertel Grün - the largest current residential construction project in Lower Austria - is a modern green urban quarter, built on eight construction sites with five architectural firms by the non-profit housing developers Heimat Österreich, EGW and Alpenland - together with the municipality and the state of Lower Austria. New living space is being created here for around 1,200 people in around 500 apartments in a central location surrounded by green and open spaces and a network of footpaths and cycle paths that are also open to the neighborhood. We are planning on building plots 3, 4, 7 and 8 - and are delighted to be part of it!

We are happy about a new project!

After a long period of preparation, the building permit for the bed replacement ward at University Hospital Vienna has been issued. Between now and 2030, approximately €1.4 billion will be invested in the construction, renovation and modernization of buildings at the joint sites of the University Hospital Vienna (AKH Wien), and the Medical University of Vienna. This will create a new, highly efficient and modern infrastructure for patients, staff and visitors, as well as for research and education, to ensure the best possible medical care. Subsequently, the Bettenhaus Ost (eastern ward), which is visible from afar, will also be renovated. In order to maintain hospital operations, a bed replacement ward will be constructed. The replacement quarters meet the highest standards for all structural and structural-physical requirements for permanently approved buildings. The new building´s wooden module construction and wooden façade make an important contribution to the circular economy and, and support the sustainability goals of the City of Vienna and a reduced carbon footprint.

Ein Viertel Grün!

A modern urban quarter with lots of green is the vision for the new residential development in the south of Wiener Neustadt on the former football stadium area – on eight building plots divided between three developers and five architectural offices. “Ein Viertel Grün” is a well thought-out mix of high and low buildings with compact structures surrounded by a bounty of green space, offering apartments of a variety of types and sizes, either subsidised or privately financed. At plot 7, Heimat Österreich is building three 2 to 3-story residential buildings in a triangle to each other, with a common center and playground to linger near the creek.

Update from Hamburg

At the Martini Clinic, a leading specialist clinic for prostate diseases at the Hamburg-Eppendorf University Hospital, the scaffolding is being dismantled step by step. The bronze cladding of the staggered floor already makes a good impression as the "crowning" finish on the roof of the clinic. The compact structure combines the red brick facade so typical of Hamburg classic architecture with champagne coloured metal facade elements. A strong but calm composition. Photo: Architects Collective

2nd place! Competition Kinderzentrum Kepler Klinikum Linz

Nothing is more traumatic for a parent than bringing their child to A&E or having them hospitalized.  The design for a compact Kinderzentrum Kepler Universitätsklinikum Linz brings together a variety of specialist care for children and youth at the Kepler University Hospital. A&E, various outpatient departments, a surgical center and six wards including intensive care, oncology and palliative care will all be on offer in one location – something only rarely seen in German-speaking countries. The design of AHA Austrian Healthcare Architects ­– an Architecture Cooperation of Architects Collective, F+P ARCHITEKTEN und SWAP Architektur focuses on consistently short distances and exemplary logistics promote sustainable spatial synergies. Two inner courtyards extend from the top floor to the basement and allow plenty of light into the rooms and corridors.

Gruber Röschitz Winery

A winemaking cathedral, dedicated to the production of high-end produce. Heaven and earth meet at this distinguished organic winery of wine-growing Gruber family. The elongated building confidently nestles among vineyards and sunken lanes and is partly built into the hillside, blending in perfectly with the landscape of the northern Weinviertel. A difference in height of around 15 meters separates the floor of the production facility from its ceiling. Within this space all the processes that make up this innovative high-end production chain can be observed. The Gruber Röschitz organic winery is planned to the highest standards of innovation and ecological sustainability. Have a look!

Update AT&S VOLT Leoben

Absolute fast-track project: a high degree of prefabrication was required to meet the extremely short construction time of the new AT&S VOLT technology and research centre, located at the company’s headquarters in Leoben, Styria. Approximately 3,500 different precast reinforced concrete elements were used. In order to supply such a large number of precast elements over such a short time frame, the precast elements were sourced from different producers across Austria and Europe. The elements were then transported by rail to a nearby trans-shipment point, only making the last leg of the journey to the construction site by truck. Due to the structural requirements of two levels of clean rooms, some of the prefabricated parts weigh over 20 tons.  In addition to the usual construction and mobile cranes, two 500-tonne mobile cranes were used to lift the finished parts with the utmost precision.

The Barcode, Office Tower AKH Wien

Construction work for the redesign and renovation of a former staff residence building is in full swing: "The Barcode" office tower will occupy twenty levels and offer the most modern amenities, as expected from a contemporary working environment. The site is jointly owned by the Vienna General Hospital and MedUni Vienna and will be developed together with the Vienna Health Association. Completion is due in 2023. The tower has been completely gutted and the removal of the façade is under way. The new façade will be made up of white iridescent metal panels laid out in a barcode pattern. This theme continues on the pavement of the newly designed piazza by alternating strips of gray (three light shades) and anthracite concrete blocks, creating a bold, contrasting pattern.

Yes, we BIM!

We at Architects Collective have been planning all phases of all projects with Building Information Modeling (BIM) since 2016. Buildings are geometrically and accurately modelled and all relevant data is structured in a digitally usable manner, so that planning is available as a data package in addition to drawings. BIM enables effective networked collaboration and quality in the construction process not only for major projects such as Luxembourg‘s second largest hospital, the Südspidol in Esch sur Alzette, but also for mid-sized ones such as the Martini Clinic in Hamburg. We are delighted to have successfully and comprehensively integrated this innovative tool into our architectural planning!

The Barcode, Office Tower AKH Wien

Greetings from the roaring ‘60s!  Between 1964 and 1967 in Vienna a twenty-storey reinforced concrete staff accommodation tower was built. Now this dormitory is being converted, turning it into a modern office building that meets highest contemporary work requirements for the Vienna Health Association and the Vienna General Hospital.

Healthcare Architecture quo vadis? The future Hospital

The future Hospital? For one year now we live in a pandemic, confronting social distancing and new virtual rooms. Covid-19 turned our lives upside down, as well as the hospital building industry. How is architecture answering to this game changer? How much future do we anticipate? Which one is the brave vision of a modern hospital? Open spaces of conviviality and well-being – or a sheltered space with maximum flexibility? Architects Collective is confronting these complex questions in an article: “Das Krankenhaus steht vor einer Revolution. Covid-19 und die Zukunft der Healthcare Architecture”

A lighthouse for children´s healthcare

The shell of the Child and Youth clinic in Breisgau has been completed. Recently, the topping-out ceremony was celebrated and the time capsule sealed away. The etherealness of the frame is already noticeable: light ingresses from all sides, including through large circular openings in the ceilings. This impression is accentuated by a series of cantilevers and “dancing” piers which create a play of light, as well as scintillating discs on the facade of the upper floors.The architecture links the interior with the landscaped park, and possesses a relaxing village character. This creates a sensitive and thoughtful place for children and teenagers to feel well and get better in.

Pure adventure: this year's office excursion took us to the rafting camp in Palfau in the beautiful Gesäuse National Park. Whether rafting on the Salza river or canyoning in the Taglesschlucht gorge, we braved the icy temperatures and had an unforgettable experience.

Our new headquarters

We have relocated to the legendary house Portois & Fix in Ungargasse 59 - 61. The building is not only considered one of the main works of the architect Max Fabiani, but was - due to its progressive architecture - also a real scandal in 1900. Fabiani created a new building type in which the separation of commercial and residential areas was shown by different materials and constructions.
