Nomination Lower Austrian Timber Construction Award 2023

Since 2023, VinziRast am Land has provided formerly homeless people with employment, daily structure and social support at the converted farm in Mayerling, 35 minutes from Vienna. The new location offers the ideal infrastructure with generous cultivation areas, nature, common rooms, small residential units, workshops, overnight accommodation, seminars and workshops.

The circular construction par excellence of the future chicken coop earned the project a nomination for the Lower Austrian Timber Construction Award 2023. For this purpose, an empty field barn in the Kamptal was dismantled, brought to Mayerling and rebuilt there as a chicken coop by wood technology students of the HTL Mödling on the former hotel tennis court. The PV modules for the south roof are a donation from a solar panel company from Carinthia.

werkraum ingenieure are proud to be part of this socially sustainable project.
