The new corporate headquarters of the ÖBB (Austrian Railway), with 30,000 sq.m
surface area and its 88 m high tower, extends along the new main railway
station in Vienna and serves as a landmark in the new city district.
Besides central facilities and external occupancies in the lower floors,
the dynamically curved building complex provides optimal conditions for
work and communication to about 1,700 employees of different affiliated
companies of the ÖBB. In this open office structure communication areas
and aisles, as well as closed meeting and working areas, are clearly
defined by different ceiling heights and, primarily, use of various
floorings. Working and conference rooms have been furnished with OBJECT
CARPET grade POODLE 1400. The surface feel, versatile range of colours
and, not least, room acoustic properties met the user’s requirements.
