Architekt Martin Kohlbauer ZT-Gesellschaft m.b.H


Influenced by the genius loci, the designs start from the place with the first sketches being of great importance for the further work. The overriding spatial design principle is often the interpenetration of interior and exterior; the themes of the buildings, which are mostly the result of competition victories, cover a very broad spectrum from urban, school, residential, office and industrial construction to hospital and tourism buildings. This field of activity is complemented by a large number of exhibition designs at home and abroad. We work as an international team in a classic studio atmosphere in a Viennese architectural jewel built by architect Oskar Marmorek in 1889/99 on Nestroyplatz.

Martin Kohlbauer, Born 1956 in Vienna, Diploma at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna 1981, from 1984 to 1998 lecturer at the master school for architecture and at the institute for visual education since 1991 architect with own studio in Vienna "Getting a little closer to the stars" is an old motto of mine.
It describes my aspirations for extraordinary solutions and simple concepts. In the end it is always about empathy and imagination . The subtitle of my most recently published monograph - A Viennese Architect - is not only about the location of my studio, but also about my cultural commitment.
