Wiener Neudorf, 19th September 2019 – The start of construction of the Building Center marks the development of the Blaue Lagune into an information hub for “Future Building”. ATP joined the client and representatives from politics and business to mark the celebratory kick-off for the new competence center. The opening is scheduled for autumn 2020.
The comprehensive study for the Blaue Lagune was drawn up by ATP Vienna in cooperation with ATP sustain in 2016. The new heart of the site is the Building Center, which is broken down into five interconnected two-story volumes. In future, this exhibition, advice, information, and event platform for all construction-related matters will enable both private individuals and companies to find and exhibit efficient and convenience-oriented solutions for their specific projects. The individual showrooms, together with the option of effectively demonstrating products publicly in one of the specialist centers, offer a range of opportunities for presenting ideas. In addition to this, a separate building will allow buildings to be portrayed at 1:1 scale on an accessible floor surface with the help of LED technology.
“The Building Center will demonstrate all developments and innovations in the building products sector as well as providing a valuable tool for architects, designers, and users in the form of an “analog and digital library”, says Horst Reiner, ATP Partner in Vienna, about the future-oriented project.
Energy efficiency with ATP sustain
ATP worked together with ATP sustain to meet the stringent requirements for energy efficiency, sustainability, and user comfort with the help of targeted energy and resource-saving measures. In doing so, the design team paid particular attention to the use of renewable approaches such as photovoltaic, solar collectors, and ice storage tanks and the potential reuse and subsequent use of the buildings. The concept was developed in line with the sustainability criteria of the DGNB certification system and is soon to be tested by the ÖGNI (Austrian Sustainable Building Council).
