Historical Ringstrasse House from 1878 is completely renovated

Office building Schottenring – law firm

Since July 2014 the law firm Schönherr has been enjoying premises of 6000m2 at Schottenring 19 in a listed builing.

The priority in the general overhaul of the building was ecological sustainibility. The R.A.I Betriebsberatungsgesellschaft was awarded with the building as a partner of the Green Building Programme of the European Commission (www.schottenring19.at/greenbuilding/).

The office, renovated by Strabag, offers optimal working conditions regarding light incidence, acoustics and indoor climate. The new old office also paid particular attention to the aesthetics of the interior to create a comfortable atmosphere for clients and employees of the law firm.

Energy efficient solutions for cultural heritage buildings

For this reason, energy-efficient emergency lighting was supplied from din-Sicherheitstechnik, which discreetly adapts to the interior architecture. Especially in listed and public areas the architect attached importance to the appearance of the building. In the stairway ground-level LED luminaires from the STRING luminaire series (recessed wall mounting) were used.
