Dear Simon, Many thanks for having “dropped by” in Hallein.Gerhard Anzengruber, Mayor of Hallein
“The senior citizens’ residence offers a precise urban development solution and directs our sights towards the larger issues. It opens up part of the north-eastern quarter of the park that was previously fully occupied by the old buildings. The now closed link to the street with the ‘Ziegelstadel’ creates a bridgehead with a gateway effect.”
Excerpt from the jury’s evaluation at the 2015 Salzburg Timber Construction Award
While the passive house standard has long been state-of-the-art for new single-family homes, and new houses should no longer really be built any differently, convincing solutions have so far been lacking in multi-storey residential construction. The “Samer Mösl” project now provides these solutions with numerous innovative details and also proves that passive house technology is possible even under the economic constraints of non-profit housing construction, despite considerable difficulties arising from the specific conditions of the site.
Jury assessment at the State Prize for Consulting 2007
The new building planned by sps architekten on the vast Zuchtviehmarkt site in Maishofen combines several functions of the agricultural sector under one roof. It follows a concept that deliberately takes up traditional forms in order to establish a new function.
A contribution to the renewal of building in the entire region.Roman Höllbacher

“This project uses stone in its most original form for walls and roof. It demonstrates that a municipality can develop inexpensive and sustainable solutions without maintenance costs, despite a low budget. It can thus give impetus to the public and show that gabions can be used not only as a material for embankments, etc. but for much, much more.”
Jury evaluation at the PILGRAM 2016
The plan was excellent, but the result was outstanding. The park blends perfectly into its surroundings! Thank you!Franz Dobusch, Mayor of Linz
Housing | Kindergarten
New construction of a kindergarten and residential building in the “Green Centre Linz”, including underground parking for the Graz housing cooperative (GWG). The building comprises 8 kindergarten groups and 48 residential units. A special feature of the building are the “green balconies”.
oh456 cultural power plant
The oh456 cultural power plant – the new creative location on the Fuschlerache with its own small ecological power plant and photovoltaic panels on the roof. A hybrid construction of non-reinforced stamped concrete walls and cross-laminated timber panels. There is space for several individual offices on three floors, and on the ground floor there is a library, food and games, and an event room.
An innovative heating system using clay storage heating was initiated and developed with Bioslehm, Bromberg (A). The building is regarded as an architecture laboratory where new ideas and applications can be tested. The sculptor, Wilhelm Scheruebl, has created two works as part of art-in-architecture.
Ferrari showcase with wine cellar
The Centre for Inclusive & Special Education in St. Johann im Pongau is located between Salzach and Lichtensteinklammstraße. The wooden building with open terraces facing the river, a large driveway and a sports hall on the upper floor was designed in collaboration with the colleagues from Arch. DI Reinhold Tinchon, Graz.
Building in a listed building complex

Small hydroelectric power plant oh456
The new ecological small hydroelectric power plant oh456 was built in place of a sawmill that had been in operation at this site for over 200 years. It consists of two spaced buildings, a shingled wooden structure standing in the direction of flow and an fair-faced concrete structure standing at right angles to the direction of flow, in which the turbine, a double-regulated Kaplan turbine with permanent generator, is housed. On average, electricity is generated for about 100 households per year. It is part of the oh456 cultural power plant.
