HMGB Architects shared with us their first prize winning proposal in the competition to design the new Paracelsus Spa and Pools in Salzburg, Austria. Located at the northern edge of the Mirabellgarten Park, the project will replace the existing Paracelsus Spa and Pool from the 1950s to include a spa with 7 different pools (6 internal and 1 external pool), sauna and therapy spaces, as well as offices for various city departments. The design defines the northwestern park edge through the building’s clear volumetric mass and is divided into a southern part including all pools and a northern part including therapy and office spaces.

The Groundbreaking Ceremony for ÖBB Corporate Headquarters recently took place to mark the start of construction for a new high-rise building in Vienna. Designed by Zechner & Zechner, their proposal was selected as the winner of an EU-wide competition in 2009. The building, which is located right by Vienna Central Station, will now allow several ÖBB companies to work at the same location as part of bringing together company sites.
