New architectural landmark in the heart of Innsbruck
Situated in the centre of Innsbruck, the P2 has, since its completion in 2018, been benefitting from excellent transport connections and sound infrastructure but also from a clear view of Tyrol’s mountain landscape. The residential tower’s eleven upper floors mainly house 2-room flats while the multi-storey plinth building has become the location of Innsbruck’s new city library which, besides its main functions, will also include a multi-functional room for events. Furthermore, a public square as well as a café some 10m above street level were built on the city library’s roof. The three basement floors house a spacious and bright underground car park with ample space for cars and motorcycles. The structure likewise offers ample bicycle parking facilities, both on the inside and outside.
And not just the P2’s users benefit from the new construction’s assets. Its architecturally well-done glass façade has significantly upgraded Innsbruck’s cityscape.
pde Integrale Planung GmbH, formerly PORR Design & Engineering, was commissioned with the P2’s overall design in autumn 2015. This project drew on almost all the competences available at pde. After all, the project included a whole range of highly complex tasks:
- Project management and project leadership
- Architecture – draft, optimisation, replacement planning, execution planning
- Superstructure design – execution statics, form work and reinforcement planning
- Technical building equipment
- Building physics
- Certification in LEED Gold
Almost all performance phases around project P2 were implemented by pde.
