Parish church in Mank
The parish of Mank and the archdiocese of St. Pölten announced the design competition for the new definition of the liturgical places in the parish and pilgrimage church of Mank. With the upcoming renovation of the church the liturgical and functional conditions should also be improved. In general it is about the adaptation of the space in the sense of the Second Vatican Council.

Skyscaper Balcony Project in Vienna
The Viennese district Wieden with its historic character and proximity to the city centre is the perfect place to live for the Austrian-Italian family. The only downside is the lack of personal outdoor space, a scarce commodity in this densely populated Wilhelminian city.

Wedding Rings Austria
Rings have played an important role as a symbol for matrimony since antiquity. Rings are also the guiding theme with regards to the redesign of Puchenau’s wedding rooms. The white stuccoed rings, with their different diameters, seem to wander through the walls of the three rooms towards the wedding hall, seemingly freed from eternal life, to melt into two intertwined rings behind the wedding altar.

Austrian Doctors’ Practice + Pharmacy
Newly built country doctor’s practice with in-house pharmacy. Dr. Fehrmann decided to build her new practice in the centre of the lower Austrian community of Kasten.

OASIS Pastoral care voestalpine
The office for pastoral care in the diocese of Linz, to be located on the site of the steel company voestalpine, is to serve liturgical as well as secular purposes. The plot of land lies as a “no-man’s-land” between main roads and industrial estates and is in need of a new strong character.

My Home is my Patio
A new type of house was designed for the plot. A mixture of housing types are stacked up to give the building its structure. There is underground parking, business premises to liven up the street area with apartments above and two-storey courtyard houses on top. These two-storey courtyard houses offer a real alternative to a suburban detached house.

picture from xarchitekten

x architekten is a group of committed architects who develop conceptual positions on contemporary architecture through project-related work.

As a mathematical variable, x stands for openness. x demands the plural: the team with its flat hierarchy replaces the professional profile of the architect as lone fighter. The dynamics of a permanent work process oscillating between creativity and (self-) criticism permit the emergence of a quality standard above the capacities of each single member.

The activities of x architekten comprise the full range from housing and office construction, buildings for industry and commerce, shopping and entertainment projects to design and urbanism.
