New forestry training centre in Traunkirchen

A new campus is at the heart of the so-called Areal Buchberg, with a view across the dark-green Traunsee to Traunstein Mountain.

The historic hunting lodge, which used to be a part of the former hospital, has been adapted to house the campus administration. Two new buildings are parallel to it, one of which houses the classrooms and the other the students’ accommodation. A transparent passageway connects these three buildings and forms an axis to Traunstein Mountain. The views of the lake and the Alps create a true sense of being connected with nature.

The heritage-protected buildings in the south section of the site have been adapted for aging in place and complemented by a new building. There is subsidised housing in the northern part of the site as well as terraced houses, which create a seamless transition to the single-family structures beyond the site’s boundaries.

Demolition of the old 1970s building; creation of four areas: campus consisting of two new buildings and heritage-protected old building; aging in place; subsidised housing; terraced houses.
