Gösserhalle in Favoriten, Vienna
4 Mar 2021
Location: Favoriten, Vienna, Austria
Of brewing and building, from yesterday into tomorrow—the history of the so-called Gösserhalle in Favoriten, Vienna’s 10th district, is a checkered one. Ever since its construction in 1902, this industrial building, originally used for the storage of beer in barrels and most recently repurposed as an event venue, has, with its distinctive façade with clinker-clad wide arches, defined the character of its urban quarter. This identity-forming brickwork structure is now taken into the future by the design of AllesWirdGut.
Utilizing the existing structure in a very mindful way, the project strikes a balance between urban design stipulations and the needs of future use—and embarks on a radical intervention in the process: While the exterior walls of the old Gösserhalle are preserved, the existing roof is pulled down to create optimal conditions for a new three-storey building that accommodates office spaces and a café and is enclosed by the historical walling. The differential between the former building depth and the new skin creates a surprising, luxurious tension-loaded three-meter interval, which, through the correlations it facilitates, seeks to evoke magical moments like just right before a kiss.
That in-between space is a gift and will be developed with regard to design, ecological, economic and pragmatic aspects. The concept of AllesWirdGut relies on prefabricated modular elements and a mix of materials consisting of wood, clinker and copper.
The design outlines a synthesis of respectfully preserved existing and leading-edge new architecture: Careful considerateness and consistently modern typology converge in a made-to-measure project that lets a freely natural, welcoming in-between take root in the center of an urban design task.
