Transparent Architecture

The design for the new buildings is the creation of Architekt Dietmar Feichtinger, who places a new facade of steel, glass and aluminium opposite the industrial building from the previous century. The model submitted by the Paris-based Austrian architect convinced the jury through its transparent structure and the harmonious integration of the existing building.

Feichtinger explains his concept as follows: "We have taken pains to incorporate the existing typologies and transparent structures. We have given attention to important aspects such as preserving the possibility to experience the surrounding vineyards, and thus merging existing structures and extensions into a functioning whole.” His concept integrates the comb-shaped structure of the historical tobacco factory and brings the industrial building face to face with a new façade of steel, glass and aluminum. Thus, the old and the new joint to form a successful and harmonious unit.
