The new, representative university location lays the foundation for the planned doubling of student numbers within the next ten years. But what exactly was done? The heritage-listed Palais Wenkheim was completely renovated and transformed into a university with cutting-edge technology. The creative studio’s team integrated the historical materials such as stone floors, casement windows, lanterns and fountains with the new usage in a very sensitive way. Even the furniture was artistically designed to match the historical spaces.
