Graz, 21 December 2020. The legero united campus receives the coveted GerambRose. An award with which the BauKultur Steiermark association honours architecturally exceptional buildings every two years.
Every two years, the BauKultur Steiermark association awards exemplary projects with the GerambRose. The architecture prize is given in the categories public, community and private spaces as well as classics. In 2020, a total of 92 applications were submitted. 26 were inspected by the five-member jury, seven of which were awarded prizes. Among them was the legero united campus in Feldkirchen bei Graz, which lived up to the jury’s rigorous criteria and came out on top in the “shared spaces” category.
What Makes Good Architecture?
This is a question with which the BauKultur Steiermark association regularly deals. According to the assessment, the legero united campus stands out primarily for its sustainable, durable and architecturally superior construction, creating an environment where both employees and customers feel equally comfortable. Its flexible construction ensures that even with increased space requirements, no additional area needs to be sealed off. Local or recycled materials were used for the property. Its energy supply functions predominantly self-sufficiently, making the building particularly sustainable. The staggered windows and the façades made of anodized aluminium sheets have effectively addressed the challenging aspect of the circular construction. Aspects that allowed the legero united campus to make a sustainable impact on the BauKultur Steiermark jury.
“The pleasant and non-hierarchical atmosphere is evident everywhere, and the company succeeds in expressing its corporate culture through architecture – more than sufficient reasons to award the project the GerambRose 2020,” reads the evaluation by the BauKultur Steiermark association.
Multiple Awards Received
Since its completion in December 2019, the legero united campus in Feldkirchen bei Graz has stood out for its high architectural quality and resource-friendly construction. For this reason it has already received several awards: Recently, ÖGNI, a cooperative partner of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB), awarded the company the highest possible certification level of platinum. Furthermore, the same association awarded the Crystal Award for social sustainability for the second time.
