AllesWirdGut won the first prize of the Esterházy Domain Private Foundation competition for the conversion of a Burgenland Meierhof in a multifunctional complex. The specific nature of the project results from the partially worth protecting historic buildings. The design of AllesWirdGut strengthens existing qualities, but combines the old architecture with contemporary enhancements. An hour away from Vienna, a multifaceted system of a restaurant, offices and homes is about to be created. More images and architects’ description after the break.

When converting a territory, architects always face the challenge of preserving substance and simultaneously to attempt a transfer to the present. With this recent achievement AllesWirdGut closes to several similar projects that we present you in this mailing with brief profiles.

Today the Meierhof itself only exists in its building and settlement typologies. The value of land consists in the location´s history and the nature of its relics. Therefore the new concept will focus on both values and integrate them equally. With best possible preservation of the existing historical construction, a harmonic composition of contemporary typology and modern architecture will be implemented.

Significant parts of the Meierhof will remain or will serve as templates for the reconstruction of the settlement´s character (apartments). The proportions will be constrained and will function as base elements for the additional components afterwards. Even traditional facade openings as well as external walls remain in place. Roofs and internal walls fall into the renovation concept though the roof outline can be adapted to future purposes. Depending on the existing premises, the new construction will fulfill different functions: Wether it is used as an attic (administration), as a single room (depot) or as furniture itself (restaurant).
