The aim of the project was to design a building for a new music school in Graz, which needed to fit into the narrow space between two existing buildings. We decided to develop an ecologically sensitive design based on a wooden structure, without losing sight of our strong requirements for a design that offers remarkable room for the students as well as for the inhabitants of the penthouse. The sculptural stair in the middle provides a remarkable and exciting space — while the rooms inside the building are comfortable and cosy. A large emphasis was also placed on the details we developed. The objective here was to use innovative, yet simple products — such as sheep’s wool and clay construction boards, ensuring that it is environmentally friendly as well as providing a nice interior climate.
The submission planning was fully done in Autodesk Revit as a work shared BIM project. For the final submission, we handed in more than 40 detail drawings longhand with all other required submission plans according to Austrian building law.
