The new Raiffeisenbank headquarters in St. Pölten – the “raiffeisen corner” – is located on a prominent urban corner in the north of the city, not far from the railway station.
The concept of the building allows for hybrid use and accommodates not only a bank branch and an advisory centre, but also a public restaurant and café, an event space, a co-working space and terraces on multiple floors.
A formulated joint divides the building into two volumes. It marks the main entrance and contains the access to the four-storey building.
The glass body serves as a vertical connection, allowing views to the outside into the street space and the quiet inner courtyard.
The façade oscillates between openness and closedness. Horizontal cornices made of glass-fibre concrete wrap around the building over several storeys, contrasting generous glass surfaces, which are rhythmically broken by pilaster strips.
