Bramberger [architects] wins competition for the new High Tech Campus in Villach 

The winning scheme by Bramberger [Architects] proposes four blocks of buildings and a corresponding area of dedicated open spaces, articulated longitudinally by a main axle. This axle - named 'Communications Promenade' - acts as a central route between the buildings and, in the future, it is proposed to connect the surrounding buildings, promoting the necessary infrastructures for the creation of an investigation campus.

The chess-like distribution of the buildings allows a multiplicity of visual relations between interior and exterior spaces. The functions of the building are distributed in consideration of the minimum distance between the volumes and a strong connection to the dedicated exterior spaces, creating optimal working spaces.

The clear concept of the project and the pragmatic approach regarding the distribution of the program not only offers a fully functional building but also a strong urban space that encourages the integration of the existing buildings, creating a new campus in the city of Villach. The project is now in the planning phase and construction is scheduled to begin in spring 2014 with completion expected in summer 2015.
