Klangkörper Wilten

Leopoldstraße 67, 6020 Innsbruck, A
Architecture: stoll.wagner+partner (2021-2023) Builder-owner: Prämonstratenser Chorherrenstift Wilten Open to the public: partially TIP: The Wilten Boys' Choir, one of the most traditional boys' choirs in Europe, regularly gives concerts.

In order to create a contemporary rehearsal venue for the Wilten Boys' Choir, the idea of building on top of the petrol station on the grounds of the monastery of Wilten was born. A largely closed structure overhangs the fuel station on the street side and appears self-confident with its continuous outer skin of natural copper sheeting. The rehearsal room upstairs is illuminated and ventilated via an atrium, and a small pub is integrated into the petrol station downstairs.

Radetzkystraße 43 - 43g, 6020 Innsbruck, A
Architecture: Bogenfeld Architektur, eck.architektur, Christoph Eigentler Architektur, Harald Kröpfl (2019-2022) Builder-owner: IIG, Neue Heimat Tirol Open to the public: partially Accessibility: Tram line 5

In the next few years, around 1,000 new apartments will be built on the Campagne site in the Reichenau district of Innsbruck. On the first of the four construction fields, Bogenfeld Architektur implemented a concept based on the main idea of an open-air living room. Between four buildings of different shapes, they create a sequence of alleys, squares and gardens that are intended to promote a lively coexistence.

MPREIS and Living

Schönwerth-Park 2/2a, 6111 Volders, A
Architecture: LAAC (2021-2022) Builder-owner: MPREIS Open to the public: partially

As a contribution to the careful use of soil as a resource, the supermarket chain MPREIS has built a food market in Volders, whose roof serves as a construction site for a high-quality residential building. Both functions are clearly separated from each other and designed differently as a result. The roof area around the residential building was greened and equipped with a community terrace.

Südbahnstraße1, 6020 Innsbruck, A
Architecture: Alois Zierl, Michael Heinlein (2020-2022) Builder-owner: PEMA Immobilien GmbH Open to the public: partially TIP: Open-access sky bar on the top floor.

With the P3, PEMA Holding is building its third tower in Innsbruck, directly opposite the Adambräu. The architects realised a slender building consisting of a four-storey base and a 10-storey structure, which forms a clear end to the station area. Hotel "Motel One" is located in the tower, and the "reiter design" showroom and office spaces are located in the base.

City Hotel Platzhirsch

Unterer Stadtpl. 19, Kufstein, A
Architecture: wiesflecker-architekten (2020-2022) Builder-owner: Kultur Quartier Kufstein Ges.m.b.H Open to the public: partially TIP: Enjoy the Viennese coffee house culture in the associated café "Platzhirsch".

After a change of ownership, a town house with its core dating back to the 15th century on Kufstein's town square was converted into a hotel with a restaurant, coffee house and its own roastery and extended by a new building on Marktgasse used as an office building. Through targeted contemporary interventions, the historical substance was further developed into a new unity in which the old and the new always remain recognisable.

Restaurant Pippilotta

Heiliggeiststraße 7-9, 6020 Innsbruck, A
Architecture: he und du (2022) Builder-owner: Lebenshilfe Tirol gem. GmbH Open to the public: Monday to Thursday 11:30 a.m. – 9 p.m., Sunday 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. TIP: The kitchen offers newly interpreted regional products.

Since 2010, people with disabilities have found a job in a restaurant run by Lebenshilfe Tirol in Innsbruck Landhaus 2. The starting point for the conversion was the wish for more flexible event options in the dining area and the creative implementation of the motto "eat colorfully.” The architects implemented these requirements with the help of curtain panels in two colors, which allow different room configurations quickly and easily and fulfill the desired color scheme.

Sports and Leisure Facility Fließ

Dorf 180a, 6521 Fließ, A
Architecture: AllesWirdGut (2019-2021) Builder-owner: Gemeinde Fliess Open to the public: yes Accessibility: from the village centre towards the west (approx. 15 min walk) The facility was built with the help of the population; about 15,000 hours were spent by association members and volunteers free of charge.

The municipality of Fliess has been trying for several years to counteract the threat of migration. After a multifunctional village centre, the sports and leisure facility is another building block to encourage young people to stay in the village. Based on the topography, the architects placed several horizontally layered levels on, over and against the edge of the hillside: including a clubhouse, a sauna structure by the outdoor pool and a cantilevered deck along the main football field.

Boutique Hotel Rattenberg

Südtirolerstraße 45, 6240 Rattenberg, A
Architecture: Wurzer Nagel, Doris Dockner (2020-2021) Builder-owner: Partoll Invest GmbH Open to the public: partially TIP: Take the panoramic lift in the revitalised "Malerwinkel" up to the castle hill or walk up the stairs across the sexton's house from the old town to the parish church.

The transformation of a historic town house into a boutique hotel is the latest example of the urban renewal process in Rattenberg that started in 2003. In the course of this process, several houses in the old town, which is protected as an ensemble, have been revitalised and vacancies filled with new life. With respect towards the heritage listed building, the very narrow house was renovated from the core up and supplemented with contemporary structures where necessary.

BG/BRG Sillgasse

Sillgasse 10, 6020 Innsbruck, A
Architecture: SOLID architecture (2019-2021) Builder-owner: BIG TIP: A new pedestrian connection leads along Paul-Hofhaimer-Gasse in the west to the Tyrolean State Museum Ferdinandeum.

The new school building in the densely built-up centre of Innsbruck provides a differentiated range of rooms despite the necessary compactness. The building is divided into three parts by trapezoidal incisions, which are connected on the side facing away from the street by balcony zones that provide the pupils with a kind of vertical schoolyard.

HTL Bau & Design Extension

Trenkwalderstraße 2, 6020 Innsbruck, A
Architecture: ao-architekten (2020-2021) Builder-owner: BIG Open to the public: Upon request The extension received an award from the Tyrolean State Prize for New Building 2022.

Like many other schools, the HTL Bau und Design (Technical High School for Structural and Civil Engineering and Design) is affected by an acute shortage of space. ao-architekten realized the desired extension as a compact, single-story addition to the main wing, which clearly stands out from the existing structure through a band of windows running around the entire story. In the building, which is characterized by an open spatial structure and supplied with northern light via sheds, a studio-like ambiance with a high quality of stay was created for the seven final-year classes.

Schwaz District Commission – Conversion and Expansion

Franz-Josef-Straße 25, 6130 Schwaz, A
Architecture: Thomas Mathoy (2019-2021) Builder-owner: Landesbaudirektion Tirol Open to the public: Partially In 2022, the project received a recognition award from the Tyrolean State Prize for New Building.

In the course of the expansion and functional adaptation of the Schwaz District Commission, a former passage courtyard was transformed into an attractive urban space. The upper level of the square was expanded, and the difference in level to the lower level has been overcome by a spacious open staircase with steps for seating. The partial, pavilion-like roofing of the stairs and the front area offers protection and forms the spatial framework for this new meeting place.

Reconstruction of the Linderhütte Alpine Hut

Spitzkofel - Lienzer Dolomiten, 9908 Amlach, A
Architecture: Plattform Architektur Osttirol (2020-2021) Builder-owner: ÖTK Lienz Accessibility: From the Klammbrückl hikers’ parking lot via the Kerschbaumeralm Refuge (a walk of several hours)

Built in 1883 in exposed high alpine surroundings on Spitzkofel Mountain (Lienz Dolomites), the Linderhütte was largely destroyed by a storm in 2018. On the initiative of several architects from Lienz, the small hut was rebuilt with the help of donations, sponsorship and voluntary work. The shape, dimension and materiality of the historic old structure were not changed, and a self-supporting "inner chamber” made of solid wood elements was placed in the reconstructed solid building.

Umhausen Pavilion

Mure, 6441 Umhausen, A
Architecture: Armin Neurauter (2020-2021) Builder-owner: Gemeinde Umhausen Open to the public: Yes In 2022, the music pavilion received a recognition award from the Tyrolean State Prize for New Building.

In the Tyrolean community in the lower Ötztal Valley, which is characterized by tourism and tradition, an attractive site for the village community was created with the new music pavilion. An elongated wall is flanked by two side arms for technical equipment, storage, toilets and a bar, while the slightly sloping terrain is used as a natural grandstand. The pavilion takes on its very own character through the use of tamped concrete, the exact granulation and pigmentation of which was developed in numerous experiments.

Schupfen Gröbenhof (Gröbenhof Shed)

Gröben 1a, 6166 Fulpmes, A
Architecture: Jakob Siessl, Florian Schüller (2020-2021) Builder-owner: Familie Schüller TIP: The neighboring Gasthof Gröbenhof features specialties from the region.

The revitalization of the 300-year-old shed is an example of how old farm buildings can be preserved and transformed for new functions in line with the "Reuse” philosophy. In the spirit of the Tiny House movement, the outbuilding utilized for storage purposes was transformed into a minimalist dwelling. As much of the existing building as possible was preserved and new things were implemented – in a clearly legible manner – using regional materials.

Pastorstraße 7, 6020 Innsbruck, A
Architecture: ARSP ARCHITEKTEN (2019-2021) Builder-owner: BIG Open to the public: partially

In the course of the organisational transformation of the former "Pädak" into a university of teacher education, the existing building, which was constructed in the 1970s, was renovated and extended. ARSP Architekten added two more volumes to the existing ones and created clearly structured areas for the individual units of use.

Biochemiestraße 43b, 6250 Kundl, A
Architecture: Architekten Scharfetter_Rier, Mario Ramoni (2019-2020) Builder-owner: Marktgemeinde Kundl Open to the public: partially

In the centre of Kundl, between the secondary school and the music school, a new primary school building was erected in place of an old building in the format of a compact structure in which the functions are vertically layered. On the ground floor, which is glazed all around, are the communal areas, above are two learning floors and below is a large triple sports hall shared with the secondary school and clubs.

Renovation and Conversion Primary School Brixlegg

Römerstraße 18a, 6230 Brixlegg, A
Architecture: Architekturhalle Wulz-König, Todorka Iliova (2019-2020) Builder-owner: Gemeinde Brixlegg

The primary school of Brixlegg was built in the mid-1960s by the Brixlegg architect Josef Gschösser according to the concept of an atrium school. The school was upgraded functionally and spatially through targeted interventions with careful handling of the existing building substance. As part of one of the measures, the main entrance was relocated to the east and redesigned as a sheltered entrance area.

Town Hall Nauders

Nauders 221, 6543 Nauders Nauders, A
Architecture: gritsch.haslwanter architekten (2019-2020) Builder-owner: Gemeinde Nauders

The new town hall in Nauders emerged - like many others - from a competition supported by the Tyrolean Village Renewal. A compact exposed concrete structure with a light gable roof gives the community an appropriate presence through its form and height development. Between the new building and the former town hall from the 1950s, which has now been repurposed, an attractive village square has been created.

Office P.

Medrazerstraße 19, 6166 Fulpmes, A
Architecture: Madritsch Pfurtscheller (2015-2020) Builder-owner: Claudia Pfurtscheller Open to the public: No In 2020, the project received an Honorable Mention of the State of Tyrol for New Building.

The little house in Fulpmes is a paramount example of the resource-saving approach to building materials and upcycling. Materials from a nearly 200-year-old, demolished threshing floor were utilized, as well as used windows, doors and glass. Moreover, regional or inexpensive materials were primarily used. A radically stripped-down, open-use space emerged on the ground floor, and a one-room apartment on the upper floor, largely equipped with used items.

Renovation of a Mountain Farmhouse

Grausegg 1, 6322 Kirchbichl, A
Architecture: b.eder architekten (2017-2020) Open to the public: No In 2020, the renovation received an Honorable Mention of the State of Tyrol for New Building.

An approximately 300-year-old mountain farmhouse at an altitude of 1,200 meters was sustainably revitalized with careful attention to historic preservation and based on the tradition of "building on.” Taking into account the farming past, as well as the more recent history, a harmonious ensemble was created with sensitivity and through the introduction of new architectural elements such as lattice windows, raw steel fittings and the use of conglomerate rock.

Momoness Take-Away

Anichstraße 10, 6020 Innsbruck, A
Architecture: Rainer Köberl (2019-2020) Builder-owner: MOMONESS KG Open to the public: During business hours Tip: The house specialty is momos, typical Nepalese dumplings.

In a 17 m2-large shop, Rainer Köberl set up a Nepalese take-away for Dil Ghamal – a building owner for whom the architect had already planned the "Sensei” and "Meer Sensei” sushi bars. The space is kept in the basic silver color. Its dark walnut, mirror and a Sanskrit proverb on the wall exude a touch of Nepal.

Tiroler Steinbockzentrum (Tyrolean Alpine Ibex Centre)

Schrofen 46, 6481 St. Leonhard im Pitztal, A
Architecture: Rainer Köberl, Daniela Kröss (2018-2020) Builder-owner: Gemeinde St. Leonhard im Pitztal Open to the public: Daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Accessibility: Approx. 15 minutes on foot from the parking lot at the municipal office TIP: Restaurant "Am Schrofen” and circular hiking trail with observation towers

Designed by Rainer Köberl and Daniela Kröss, the museum building lies like a small fortress on a steep slope. Rising above a roughly pentagonal layout is a tower-like structure that gets its conciseness from the clear form and the reduction of the design elements to reddish-colored concrete in connection with bold red steel elements. From the entrance on the ground floor, visitors are guided through two exhibition levels up to a viewing terrace, which leads over a footbridge into the ibex enclosure.

Gutmann Pellet Store

Innsbrucker-Straße 81, 6060 Hall in Tirol, A
Architecture: obermoser + partner architekten, Hanno Schlögl (2019-2020) Builder-owner: Gutmann GmbH Open to the public: no The transformation received an award from the Tyrolean State Prize for New Building 2022.

The former granary in the commercial area of Hall was converted into a transshipment center for wood pellets for an energy company and expanded to include a space for company events. The basic idea of the design was to place a crown on the existing tower and thus transform the anonymous commercial structure into an architecturally striking building. The two-story addition was encased in a filigree precast concrete façade, the grid of which refers to the structures found in the existing building.

Revitalization of Heinfels Castle

Panzendorf 1, 9920 Heinfels, A
Architecture: Gerhard Mitterberger (2017-2020) Builder-owner: A. Loacker Tourismus GmbH, Museumsverein Burg Heinfels Open to the public: May to October from Tuesday to Sunday (entrance fee) The Heinfels Castle Museum can be discovered on your own or experienced with a guide.

Dating back to the 13th century, the core of Heinfels Castle had fallen into disrepair over the past century. In 2007, the South Tyrolean company Loacker took over the ruin and, in cooperation with the Federal Monuments Office, the State of Tyrol and the newly founded museum association, developed a concept to make them usable for tourism and culture. In a balancing act between old and new, parts of the large castle complex were preserved and restored, while others were reconstructed and reinterpreted.
