Austrian Bramberger Architects have won the international competition to design the new High Tech Center in Villach, Austria. The winning scheme proposes four blocks of buildings and a corresponding area of dedicated open spaces, articulated longitudinally by a main axle. This axle, named “Communications Promenade” acts as a central route between the buildings and, in the future, it is proposed to connect the surrounding buildings, promoting the necessary infra- structures for the creation of an investigation campus.

The chess-like distribution of the buildings allows a multiplicity of visual relations between interior and exterior spaces. The functions of the building are distributed having in consideration the minimum distance between them and a strong connection to the dedicated exterior spaces, creating optimal working spaces.

The clear concept of the project and the pragmatic approach regarding the distribution of the program not only offers a fully functional building, but also a strong urban space that encourages the integration of the existing buildings, creating a new campus in the city of Villach. 

The project is now in the planning phase. Construction is scheduled to begin in spring 2014 and expected to complete in summer 2015.
