Integrated Design Award
ATP is the first winner
Frankfurt, Vienna – The European GreenBuilding Integrated Design Award 2014 was awarded for the first time during the IEECB-Conference (Improving Energy Efficiency in Commercial Buildings). The prize went to ATP architects engineers (Vienna) and the Vienna Business Agency for the aspern IQ building. The building convinced the jury with its combination of a high standard of energy efficiency with reasonable costs.
Architect Horst Reiner, ATP Partner and Managing Director in Vienna, accepted the prize on behalf of ATP architects engineers: “We are completely convinced that integrated design is a precondition for sustainability. We have been designing integrally for 38 years. This makes me even more delighted by today’s recognition of our work”.
aspern IQ is the impulse project of aspern: Vienna’s Urban Lakeside, one of Europe’s largest urban development areas. ATP won the EU-wide, open realization competition with a concept for a Plus Energy building in 2010 and was commissioned to carry out the integrated design. The building was completed in 2012.
According to Klemens Leutgöb, Managing Director of the Vienna research and consultancy company e7: “The prize recognizes outstanding design processes for sustainable buildings. We received entries from across Europe but the most convincing design processes were carried out in Austria.”
The ID Award is organized in cooperation with the European GreenBuilding Program of the European Union, with the aim of publicizing outstanding integrated design processes as a means of underlining the importance of optimized design processes for energy efficient buildings. In this context, the use of integrated design processes plays a central role.
ATP is a pioneer in the field of integrated design and is the first architecture and engineering office worldwide to offer a certified integrated design approach.
