Albert Wimmer’s architecture studio was founded in 1977. The realisation of large scale projects such as the “Freudenau” power-station of Vienna, the reorganisation and revitalisation of the Leuven town centre in Belgium, the housing and residential area of “Perfektastraße” in Vienna as well as the “Quarter Helgoland”, the elaboration of the “Corporate Identity-Manuals” for the Austrian Railways and the construction of the sports and leisure park “Tivoli-New” in Innsbruck, the stadium in “Salzburg Wals-Siezenheim”, the EURO 2008-Stadium of Klagenfurt and the EURO 2012-Stadium in Lviv (Ukraine) have been enabled through major successes in competitions.

Major successes in architectural competitions are currently shaping the range of activities: The master plan for the district of the south- and central railway station of Vienna, the new conference centre at the United Nations headquarters in Vienna, the master plan “Eurogate” and “Monte LAA” and the ongoing new development of the new hospital “Krankenhaus Nord” in Vienna.

Over many years the studio of Albert Wimmer is experienced and skilled in interdisciplinary work and has accomplished all big assignments and orders to full satisfaction of the clients.

A fix team of some 40 very committed, highly qualified, international employees, whose core has had a constant composition of fifteen persons over the last fifteen years, guarantees high-level professional expertise. The work routine is described by a tight network of cooperation with colleagues and other experts on national and international levels.

Over many decades a highly qualified staff has gained broad experience and know-how through continuous professional planning and processing of projects in Austria and other countries.

The Atelier Albert Wimmer ZT GmbH has wide experience and great knowledge of realisation of large scale projects in master planning and urban design. The Atelier sets great value to continuing quality checks and has therefore specialised employees.
