Schottenring 19 Offices in Vienna

There are a lot of historic buildings that have been refurbished in Europe. Only a few however provide the energy efficiency of modern construction.

The revitalisation of Schottenring 19 in Vienna preserves the spatial generosity of the original historic building but halves its energy consumption and fulfils the requirements of the EU Directive regarding earth quake resistance.

The renovation by RLP began with optimizing the high potential of the original architecture. The opportunities were abundant.

The open structure of the house (built in 1878) allowed the development of use-neutral and thus economical areas. In coordination with the Heritage Office, the roof area was expanded and the courtyard once again became usable as an outdoor space.

The original double-height trading floor of the former fruit stock exchange has been re-configured as the new entrance space to the building. It serves now as a grand hall and access to the upper floors. The revitalisation of this hall, along with the re-structured offices and apartments, reflects the spatial generosity of the old stock exchange.

RLP Rüdiger Lainer + Partner has considered the “Schottenring 19″ ensemble in its entirety and made it fit for the future. Taking center stage in this revitalisation was the aspect of sustainability (aesthetics, use-neutrality, structure and energy).

The “Schottenring 19″ project takes the following measures
• Creation of flexible and adaptable spaces for office and living
• Structural retrofitting of supporting elements and improving the shear strength (payload 200kg / m², fulfilling Euro Code 8)
• Halving the heating demand (by thermal insulation, double glazing, central heating)
• Expansion of the roof area and the courtyard
• Exposure of the building fabric and refurbishment of generous spaces
• Restoration of all facades

All these measures enrich the building’s function, form and efficiency, and result in a significant reduction of its ecological footprint. “Schottenring 19″ is one of the few historic buildings in Vienna which match the Eurocode 8 (EU earthquake directive).
