Recently, the result of the realization competition for the Raiffeisenlandesbank Oberösterreich (RLB) has been announced: We are delighted for HENN architects, whose design was awarded 1st prize. Our team in Berlin supported HENN as structural engineers in the competition.
RLB’s head office from 1974 in Linz, Austria, is to be replaced by a new building, which will be surrounded by a publicly assessible campus.
The winning design for the new headquarters features a twelve-story building with three floors underground and up to nine floors above ground. It is designed as a jointless frame structure in solid construction. The building’s volume extends to several voids, which envelop the central atrium. Further characteristic design features include the cantilever above the main entrance as well as the column-free main foyer.
While RLB Campus’25 is yet to be built, another sbp project is already under construction in the city of Linz: the 4th Danube Bridge.
