New district office in Seekirchen am Wallersee: Sustainable and user-friendly

The Salzburg Umgebung district office, constructed primarily from wood, marks Salzburg’s first administrative building of its kind and has garnered acclaim with the ‘Best Architects 24’ award and the klimaaktiv Gold Standard, an Austrian sustainability certification. Comprising six wooden cubes of varying heights atop a concrete pedestal, the structure seamlessly integrates with its surroundings.

Sustainability resonates within, featuring vertical gardens, exposed wood, and expansive glass, all contributing to a positive atmosphere. Interior flexibility is paramount, with adaptable partition walls facilitating quick adjustments for various uses. Installations integrated into the cladding enable efficient remodeling, further enhancing longevity. The district office’s heating relies on Seekirchen’s district network, while an earth collector preheats supply air and a downhole heat exchanger cools the floor in summer. The Salzburg Umgebung district office combines aesthetic appeal, environmental responsibility, and functional adaptability, embodying modern and sustainable design principles.
