Following ATP Vienna’s success in a design competition and a planning phase lasting 14 months, the construction of OMV’s new office building started in October 2016. The building’s state-of-the-art energy concept which was developed by ATP sustain includes the supply of energy from the OMV steam network.

In urban planning terms, the building marks the entrance to the refinery complex. It is conceived as an ensemble of four interwoven bridge-like buildings, parts of which float like a sculpture over an existing bunker complex. The dynamic, sloping, sculptural forms of the load-bearing pillars combine in an open, generous gesture to create a dramatic reception space with very special aesthetic qualities.

“In the future, the new OMV office building will be perceived as the first modern building with high-quality architecture that welcomes the people of and visitors to Vienna as they drive from the airport to the city center” reports ATP’s Project Leader, the architect Birgit Reiterer, with a sense of pride.

Clearly visible from the Schwechat motorway intersection the building responds to the notion of speed and the fascination with “mobility”. The deep multi-colored reveals of the façade ensure that it is experienced very differently from different perspectives.

With a gross floor area of around 13,000 square meters the building offers space for around 300 employees. Arranged around two green “oases”, the offices and meeting rooms offer an excellent user experience.

ATP’s structural engineers ensured that the 65x75 meter building is largely free of columns and offers appropriately flexible spaces for a range of functions. A single central lift core acts as the vertical link between all building volumes and functional areas.
