Administration building- Krems, Austria

Administration building- Krems, Austria

The Niederösterreichhaus building complex in Kremscaptivates with its masterly balancing of the new and the historical. The three buildings match their small-scale

surroundings on the edge of the old town of Krems, but function as a single entity through the connecting bridge components.

The passive house idea was interpreted as holistic concept covering both low resource consumptions during construction and energy efficient operation in future. Particular attention was paid to selecting optimal materials and providing high-grade user comfort. The new building houses several government agencies in one location, which makes both Intra-administration communication and citizens’ lives easier.
