来自OMA事务所的设计师Ellen van Loon和Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli将主持设计位于维也纳Museumsquartier区的KaDeWe商场和酒店。这一消息在10月1日的最终陪审团会议后宣布,该会议的结束也标志着由开发商Signa组织的设计竞赛圆满落幕。

OMA / Ellen van Loon and Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli will design the new KaDeWe department store and hotel in Vienna’s Museumsquartier. This was announced after a final jury meeting on October 1, concluding a design competition organized by the developer Signa.

▼项目概览,project overview

“商场的价值应该由它们融入当地环境的能力来衡量。我们非常开心有机会在维也纳的历史中心工作,希望通过这个项目来凸显出这座城市的品质。建筑不是简单的图标,而是一个可以通过内部组织来建立新的城市联系和公共空间的建筑装置。”Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli和Ellen van Loon说。

Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli and Ellen van Loon: “The value of department stores should be measured by their ability to engage the local context. We are very excited about the opportunity to work in the historical heart of Vienna, and with this project we intend to highlight its qualities. The building is not an icon but rather an architectural device that establishes new urban connections and public spaces through its own internal organisation.”

The main program components are split in two volumes, retail up front and hotel in the rear, between which OMA created a green passage that invites people up to a series of public roof gardens. The gardens range in quality and character – from tree groves to sun decks – generating unprecedented views from all sides of the building onto the city. The KaDeWe complex is connected to the pedestrian network of the area and provides new types of public spaces in the historical center. The façade is inspired by the gentle and sophisticated geometries of the architecture of the Vienna Secession.
