Our project plonerloft was awarded with the Tyrolean prize for refurbishments and renovations in 2014.
From 110 entries in 4 categories only 9 projects were awarded. The evaluation of the projects was mainly the overall concept of rehabilitation but also the architectural criteria, the energy efficiency and the construction ecology.
Text of Jury for plonerloft:
“…Despite the requirements for low room height of the extension, the implementation indicates a possible approach of how other challenging existing buildings can be densified through an intelligent planning. This additional living space, in a building mixed with commercial use, sets a good example of an urban development in an existing structure without using new space. Above all, the interplay between interior and exterior space and the use of the roof as a free open space impress architecturally.”
