ÖAMTC Mobility Centre

The new ÖAMTC headquarters is a remarkable, strongly expressive icon on Austria’s busiest road (the A23) in the centre of Vienna.
The building is characterized by generously sized service areas for members of this automobile association and a technical service facility. The ÖAMTC headquarters is the workplace for approx. 800 staff members, and all the club services are combined in this new mobility building. On the roof there is a heliport, that serves as the new location for the rescue service helicopter “Christophorus 9”.

Catharina Bridge

The Aalmarkt area in the historical city centre of Leiden is undergoing a metamorphosis. The new Catharinabridge, a 6-meter-wide pedestrian bridge in line with the new Catharina Alley, creates a new circular shopping route. The very slender and fluent appearance of the bridge deck makes the bridge extraordinary. Seen from above the bridge is shaped like an S and the deck is double curved in order to connect well to the street pattern and optimize the smooth traffic flow both on land and on water.
