Landhaus 2

The competition for the new seat of government for the Austrian Land of Tyrol in Innsbruck was won by the architects Tom Frank and Tilman Probst. Their self-confident design combined the mundane function of an administrative office with the openness of a bright, transparent and friendly home.

From the outside, the five-storey building presents itself with a light metal facade alternating with window elements.
“The glass atria integrated in the building optimise the use of daylight and act
as temperature buffers“ comments Tom Frank about his concept. One immediately feels well here, thanks to the almost Mediterranean climate, the plants, and the light suffused atmosphere of the atria. For the construction, however, this required: glass facades over six stories; freely spanned glass roofs over the atria; and high heat insulation in the frame construction.
