wienertor center krems
The shape of the Wienertor Center follows the guiding urban development concept developed by Göbl Architecture for this section of Krems. The beginning of the property is marked by a tower, set as a landmark to usher in the city neighborhood’s new development. A three-story perimeter block development is projected along Wienerstraße, taking up the heights of the surroundings. Two east-west stretching structures create a large courtyard, shielded from the railway tracks by a tall, elongated building. The project shelters a number of different uses under its roof. Each area has unique attributes and is easily recognizable from the outside. The design brings the sections together through the use of materials, colors, and construction, creating a cohesive design unit. Residential units for different living needs, ranging from those of students to assisted living situations, various office spaces from small to large, and a medical center all find what they need here in the development. A grocery store is situated on the ground floor. Daily grocery needs are covered on 1,000 m2 of floor space. The development is primarily projected as a reinforced steel structure. The receding top story and the maisonette building will be lightweight constructions of prefabricated x-lam elements. The exterior shell is of large-format sheets of glass and different colored panels and/or Profilit glass. Apertures and sliding door elements are inserted along the glass and panel façades according to use. The rooftops are greened, flat-roof structures.
