Experience architecture.

With steel, the possibilities are nearly endless – for an impressive example of this, look no further than the voestalpine Stahlwelt architecture. Steel is the theme that recurs throughout the entire structure and, in combination with other materials, gives the structure its one of a kind character. Towering to a height of 30 meters with a wing projecting out 15 meters, the building has a striking, distinctive look while also imparting a sense of transparency and lightness. Credit for the architecture goes to Linz-based architectural firm Schremmer-Jell.

Multifaceted spatial arrangement
Spanning five levels, the voestalpine Stahlwelt offers a striking array of diverse spatial impressions. Inside the steel rotunda and in the adjoining “tower,” an interplay of various spatial zones is at work – some are closed and introverted while others are open and orientated toward the outside. The inclined glass elevator and the vertical conveyor of exhibits are fascinating elements straight out of the world of steel production.

Symbol of openness
Along with the Group headquarters, the administration building of voestalpine Stahl GmbH and the gas holders, the voestalpine Stahlwelt constitutes another architectural point of reference in Linz’s industrial landscape. The building’s shape is reminiscent of a periscope – providing a clear view of the plant grounds and the city of Linz and standing as a symbol for the openness of the voestalpine Group.
