Wirtschafts University Building – 14 Nov 2013
This is an interesting new Vienna building in the Prater district. Draped over the exterior is a layer of natural timber louvres that partially deal with sun shading and respond to the woodlands that surround the campus – also acting as staccato foil to the striation of the buildings as a whole.

Hotel Daniel Vienna – 9 Aug 2013
Atelier Heiss converted the former Hoffmann-La Roche-building to an urban hotel. The original building had the first curtain-wall style facade in the city (by architect Georg Lippert in 1962). The landmarked facade and the supporting structure exist to this day. The former offices were adapted to hold 115 double rooms, and the ground floor area was converted into a bakery, a retail shop and the reception.

Rochus Wien – 24 Apr 2013
When planning this building the instructors made a great effort to include all different requirements in the project without, however, neglecting the idea of a unified architectural line. So when the general refurbishment on Bauernfeldplatz in 1090 Vienna started it was important to connect the different levels and to open up the restaurant towards the road space in the foreground. A special element of the building is the 1913 built and still existing sun garden. Rather than putting it down because of his ongoing decrepitude we decided to keep and rehabilitate it.

Mansory Villa – 31 Jan 2013
The building plot is located in 19th district on the beautiful hills of Vienna, surrounded by the world-famous traditional vineyards of the city. Situated in a green and quiet area, away from city noise and yet quick connected to the city center, the most costly Viennese private villas are located in this district.

Fendigasse Housing – 13 Nov 2012
The intended concept for the roof extension has been derived from our earlier design for a sailing yacht. Watching the wonderful view of Vienna from the rooftop of the existing building, we had the feeling of sailing on a ship looking out at an endless sea. Then, we adopted our yacht design to the new roof extension. The constructed building proves our approach, as the pedestrians would recognize the similarity between the penthouse top and the yacht at a quick glance.

21er Haus Vienna – 18 Aug 2012
The so-called 20er Haus in Vienna had been empty for nearly 10 years before it was rebuilt and reopened under the name “21er Haus” in November 2011. With his renovation, Austrian architect Adolf Krischanitz has succeeded in accentuating the building’s special appearance and has given its precise design even more expression.

Penthouse Neilreichgasse – 24 Apr 2012
Favoriten has the highest amount of buildings from the “Gründerzeit” period. Nowhere in the city is the grid street plan as clear as in this district, an urban development which has been greatly expanded at around 1900. In Neilreichgasse this coherent block structure is suddenly interrupted. On one side of the street there is a commercial property with a supermarket and a parking lot and then, on the other side, our residential building with a lower construction height.

Albertina Passage Vienna – added 2 Apr 2012
The main challenge at Albertina Passage was to recreate an abandoned pedestrian underpass at the very center of Vienna into a modern dinner club for up to 300 persons. Our target was to design a club that is suitable for an elegant dinner as well as for a big party night. Hence, the design includes live music, a restaurant and a lounge. Our idea was to include these functions in one concept.

Fashion Store Vienna – added 28 Mar 2012
This new Viennese store is located in Vienna’s Neubaugasse. Inside Fashion store presents fashion by international designers. Söhne & Partner Architects tried to design the interior in a discreet but appealing way. One challenge was the size of the new shop. Only 100m² now appear to be much more extensive.

Goldschlagstrasse Vienna – 12 Jan 2012
The primary design idea was to provide an architectural solution which could extend the green spaces of the neighbouring park onto the building. Descending from the rooftop to the ground floor, a secondary structure out of metallic grids was designed on the building’s facade to reinforce the green effect of the existing park on the building’s facade by planting vegetation.

500 sqm House Vienna – 26 Jul 2011
A family with one child and maybe more to come dreams of moving from their apartment in the middle of the city to a house at the periphery with plenty of green. They envision children playing in the grass, the parents and their friends sitting amongst them, and all around nothing but green, trees, pure nature. The purchased property is a 500-square-meter plot, a grassy meadow with trees.
