01 Vorarlberger Architektur Institut 2009
Marktstrasse 33, 6850 Dornbirn

A modern building concept for architecture, art, gastronomy and a bookshop as well as unobtrusively attached apartments preserve the memory of the “Alte Naturschau” even after the renovation.

02 KUB Kunsthaus Bregenz 1994-1997
Karl Tizian Platz 1, 6900 Bregenz
Peter Zumthor

A place of art; and a place for people who want to experience artwork at their leisure. The outplacement of administrative units, shops and cafes directs the focus on the essential function of the solitary building: the exhibition.

03 vorarlberg museum 2008-2012
Kornmarktplatz 1, Bregenz
Cukrowicz Nachbaur Architekten

The museum naturally matches the adjacent cultural buildings in height and volume and expands the newly designed grain market towards the lake with the buckled south-west façade.

04 Festspielhaus und Kongresshaus Festival Hall 2005-2006
Symphonikerplatz 1, 6900 Bregenz
Dietrich | Untertrifaller

The first stage of the expansion and transformation of the construction that had been built in 1979 was conducted in 1992 and it was finally finished in 2006. The two huge rod-shaped building elements divide the complex into a studio and workshop stage, a large hall and a stage at the lakeside. The generous urban square in front conveys international flair not only at times of festivals.

05 Nordwesthaus 2004-2008
Hafenstraße 18, 6972 Fussach
Baumschlager Eberle

The unusual meeting place in the newly developed marina Fußachs plays with the elements light, nature and water. It is a clear cube with a moving concrete structure and crystalline texture on a glass cladding.

06 Cubus Wolfurt 1994-1997
Wälderstrasse 5, 6922 Wolfurt
Cukrowicz Nachbaur Architekten, Lothar Huber

The strict dark bulk which is covered in slates is not only the convention hall of the rapidly expanding city Wolfurt but also its new centre.

07 inatura Erlebnis Naturschau Dornbirn 1997-2003
Jahngasse 9, 6850 Dornbirn
Dietrich | Untertrifaller, Hermann Kaufmann, Christian Lenz

The former machine factory has turned into an interactive exhibition of nature. The museum is situated within the idyllic city park that has been designed by landscape architects. A visit of the current exhibition of kunstraum Dornbirn located in the opposite factory hall is recommended.

08 Werkraum Haus 2008-2013
Hof 800, 6866 Andelsbuch
Peter Zumthor

The Werkraum Haus promotes craft and is at the same time a meeting place, a festival hall, a showcase and much more. The large roof is supported by fourteen wooden hinged pillars and stiffened by three black concrete cubes creating an inviting gesture.

09 Angelika Kauffmann Museum 2005-2007
Brand 34, 6867 Schwarzenberg
Dietrich | Untertrifaller

The Schwarzenberger Heimatmuseum (museum of local history) and the exhibition hall for the artist Angelika Kauffmann (1741-1897) are connected by a shared foyer. The character of the original peasant Althaus (1556) has been preserved and adapted to the contemporary demands of a museum.

10 Heimatmuseum Mesmer Stall 2004
Am Dorfplatz, 6861 Alberschwende
Hermann Kaufmann, Dieter Seeberger

The old building was renovated and reconstructed and is now a place for art. A convention hall is located upstairs and a small agricultural museum of local history is situated at the ground floor. An exciting contrast is created by the visible old constructions and new installations.

11 Franz Michael Feldermuseum 2002-2003
Unterdorf 2b, 6886 Schoppernau
Matthias Hein

The cultural centre and office building Schoppernau unites a bank, a tourism office, a hairstylist, a local ensemble, a library and a museum. Untreated silver fir, continuous asphalt floor and ceiling high glazing are the attributes of the new building which blends in perfectly with the existing village structure.

12 Frauenmuseum Hittisau 1998-2000
Platz 501, 6952 Hittisau
Cukrowicz Nachbaur Architekten, Siegfried Wäger

Culture is represented in the modern construction of wooden elements and the integrated fire brigade is technically reflected in concrete, steel and glass. The different definitions of the front and backside of the building increase this polarization.

13 Juppenwerkstatt in Riefensberg 2001-2003
Dorf 52, 6943 Riefensberg
Gerhard Gruber

Conservation and renewal are equally important at the Juppenwerkstatt. A Bregenzerwälder traditional gown for women, the “Juppe”, is featured by the museum. Dye-works, a finishing shop and a room for smoothing and pleating are accommodated in the former barn and hayrick. The wooden shingles of the façade have been extensively replaced by glass shingles.

14 Thalsaal 2003-2007
Thal 27, 6934 Sulzberg
gruber locher architekten

The revitalisation of the Krone is finished with the new Thalsaal. Old and new are considerably noticeable. This project enriches the local community beyond its architectural scope.

15 Jewish Museum Hohenems 1991
Schweizer Strasse 5, 6845 Hohenems
Roland Gnaiger, Elsa Prochazka

The Heimann-Rosenthal villa in Gründerzeit style houses a historic site: the Jewish museum. The careful renovation and preservation of the bourgeois living environments as well as the reserved and dignified presentation of the documents enable visitors to immerse themselves into a different time.

16 Villa Falkenhorst 1997-2000
Flugelin 3, 6712 Thüringen
Helmut Kuess

The design of the park was inspired by English gardens and the grand villa has developed into an exhibition and event location. The architectural-historical processes remain noticeable and the historical substance is enriched by functional fixtures.

17 Artenne 2010
Kirchgasse 6, 6710 Nenzing
Hansjörg Thum

Farmhouses with barns are rare in Walgau. This one from 1841 is largely preserved in its structure and materialisation. The complex and function-related structure across different levels reappears on the inside. Old and new – made from steel – can clearly be distinguished.

18 Kulturzentrum Remise 1992-1997
Werdenbergerstrasse, 6700 Bludenz
Hans Hohenfellner

The spacious square with the long narrow reception building hides the extent of the cultural centre. The combination of the old depot, which houses a restaurant, and the new building used for concerts and exhibitions is thus highlighted perfectly.

19 Allmeinde Lech 1999-2006
Tannberg 394, 6764 Lech am Arlberg
Katia Schneider, Gerold Schneider

The small barn has developed into a functional event centre Possible utilisations of the building are cultural events, conferences, symposia or the hosting of the “artists in residence”. The contrast between “the rough” and “the fine” are realised brilliantly.
