In the course of the general renovation, the Canisianum student dormitory in Innsbruck, which was built in 1910/11, was completely reorganised. Office and day-centre uses are now arranged in the north wing and the rooms in the south and middle wings are used for dormitory use and in-house events. An entrance and exit ramp allows barrier-free access.
The integration of modern building structures into a historical building with listed building structure posed a great challenge. The number of beds was increased from 164 to 225, the majority of which – 193 – are offered as single rooms. All units now have their own bathroom and kitchenette. Furthermore, 1,500m² of common areas are available to the students.
In combination with a sustainable renovation and renewal of the entire building services, an economic operation can also be guaranteed in the future.
