Innsbruck Town Hall

Innsbruck, Austria

Creation of the town hall and redevelopment of the old building The city of Innsbruck and private investors had imagined a complex program for the historic city center: building a town hall (7 700 m²) and redeveloping of the old building (11 000 m²), creating a public square and building there an hotel, linking all these elements with gallery (8 000 m²) and moles.This new piece of city fit and dialog with the old one and this complexity creates an hybrid and modern architecture. In 2001, for the same urban block, we have had a new order of a commercial (680 m²), housing (300 m²) and offices (670 m²) building, which have been inaugurated in 2004.
