Baumschlager Eberle Architekten - the maximum utility value while taking up a cultural position that is of no less significance.
Architecture is always the outcome of intensive and complex teamwork. A transparent planning structure is an essential prerequisite and the tool employed by baumschlager eberle in their architectural work.
Controlling interdisciplinary ideas and activities is a key component of planning. It paves the way for recognition of the multi-faceted wishes and requirements of the client and their incorporation into the planning process.
A building designed by baumschlager eberle is characterised and largely determined by its context. It is the end product of a value-adding process based on a consideration of urban development, typological and building construction aspects.
For baumschlager eberle sustainability means not only taking due account of energy-related factors, but also developing an appreciation of aesthetic, social and cultural values. Only architecture respected by occupants and passers-by alike and valued in the literal sense of the word will endure, thus attaining a special form of sustainability.
The architectural objective pursued by baumschlager eberle is to generate the maximum utility value while taking up a cultural position that is of no less significance.

By converting the lobby of this well-known Viennese institution, Veech x Veech set a new standard for multimedia events spaces while delivering a new architectural identity for the venue.
With a brief to convert and modernise the existing lobby of the Studio 44 venue into a technologically advanced, multifunctional events space, Veech x Veech’s response was to create a 450sqm space that has a distinct personality of its own yet remains flexible enough to accommodate the needs of the corporate, cultural and professional communities that regularly use the space for events.
Veech x Veech’s approach was to integrate numerous technical upgrades into the new perimeter wall, floor and ceiling surfaces. The design team enhanced flexibility through innovative textile acoustic walls to screen digital media, a retractable bar, and rotating and sliding video panels that act as partitions as well as presentation screens.
A key element of the space is the programmable feature lighting, which includes three large, dramatic, custom-made lights that hover over the double-height atrium. These can be animated as well as change colour, providing the space with a central focus. The scheme was nominated for a prestigious German Prize for Lighting Design in 2014, in recognition of Veech x Veech’s technologically advanced lighting design.
