The parking deck offers 850 spaces for cars and is connected to the station’s pedestrian tunnel. This provides protection from the weather between car and train.

Vienna Architects Practice Information
Zechner & Zechner ZT GmbH – design studio based in Vienna, Austria
Architekturbüro mit Schwerpunkt für Stadtplanung, Verkehrsbau und Wohnbau : architects office based in Vienna, focused on architecture and urban development designs.
Office for architecture and urban design
Martin Zechner (*1962) and Christoph Zechner (*1961) were born in Graz, Austria, and studied Architecture at the Technical University of Graz. After working with several architects in Austria (Arch. Plottegg, Arch. Kada, Arch. Domenig), Germany and Switzerland, they set up their own office “Zechner & Zechner ZTGmbH” in Vienna in 1988.
Right now 30 architects and technicians are engaged in the Z&Z main office in Vienna.
After winning the “Corporate Design Competition for architecture of the Austrian Railways” in 1990, an intense activity concerning traffic architecture started. Especially architecture for railway-stations was the main engagement of this Vienna architectural office.
This Austrian architecture studio set into practice many buildings for railways in between the program “Corporate Design for The New ÖBB”, “New Offensive for train stations” and the “high speed- track Vienna – Salzburg”.
Further buildings concerning housing (Europan 1 , Jeglitschgründe Leoben [1999-2006], Laaerberg Vienna , Stella Zwei – Vienna  followed.
Winning architecture competitions led to contracts for building the new leisure centre for Amstetten, the new Airport-Tower at Vienna´s International Airport or the new Marriott hotel in Vienna.
The office is involved in many traffic and infrastructural projects ongoing. Among other projects the architectural design of bridges and other traffic- buildings, urban developments and complex multifunctional buildings are the main interests of this Vienna architecture studio. At the moment this Vienna architecture office is a member of the design-team for the New Main Station in Vienna, a project which will have an investment over € 600 Mio., is working on the skyscraper project for the new headquarter of ÖBB and on several office-buildings and shopping centres.
The architectural practice’s engagement in urban design and large-scale buildings led to several commissions abroad. Projects and competition entries in Moscow, Kiev, Warsaw, Budapest and St.Petersburg are in planning stages or amongst construction phase.
This architecture firm’s buildings were awarded many times. Among others with the European Steel Design Award, Brunel Award for outstanding design in railway transport or the AR-Award for emerging architecture.
