Architecture for aviation industry in Austria
Project A01 architects from Vienna have completed the new headquarters for "Schiebel" who are the leading producers of autonomous helicopters. The building reflects the ambition of the Austrian firm to be a global player in the aviation industry. The production facility opened in September 2006 at the airport in Wiener Neustadt, Austria.
The monolithic office block is clad with black basalt concrete elements that sit on a mirrored base and seems to float above the ground. The production area, using the latest processes, is directly connected to the airfield providing the necessary space for air shows. The interior design is also relating to this ambitious environment.
