A tower visible from afar, a square in front and facilities for common use – the Impulse Centre Interpark-Focus is the new administrational and architectural centre of an industrial area in Feldkirch-Röthis.
The "Interpark Focus" – a structured group of enterprises operated by PRISMA Centre for Location and Regional Development Ltd., as well as the municipality of Röthis and the federal state of Vorarlberg,Austria on an area of approx. 120,000 m² in the Rhine Valley in Vorarlberg – got its clearly-defined centre with the "Impulse Centre" which was built at the access point to the industrial park. A six-floor tower structure with approx. 2,700 m² of rentable office space and a three-floor wing designated for the company calimax, are connected by a glass section, in which you find the main entrance. Via a light-flooded foyer, the premises for seminars as well as a restaurant on the ground floor of the tower are available for the common use of the companies located in the building. The cubic structures were realized in three-formed, pre-cast, reinforced concrete segments, which support the reinforced concrete ceilings with a few steel supports inside and which herewith guarantee a free disposition of the floor plan and a high flexibility in its utilization. Due to the fact that these pre-cast segments are staggered from one floor to the next, the cladding is rhythmically structured and the whole structure has a characteristic appearance, which is in dialogue to the plant of the neighboring company Jura („Interpark Focus 1“), which was also realized by the Office Hermann Kaufmann. The tower which surmounts the surrounding buildings and which is visible from afar is the landmark that is identified with the industrial park. At the same time, it is an essential site for meetings and communication thanks to the infrastructure facilities and the square in front
