Ceremonial Opening of Styria Media Center
(6/11/2015) The Styria Media Center on the new Gadollaplatz in Graz-Jakomini was opened on 11.06.2015 in the presence of many prominent guests. The 14-storey-building, towering to more than 60m, is the new Styria Media Group Headquarters and is home not only to its editing staff and Antenne Steiermark radio station, but also to a bank’s branch and a kindergarten. The central heart of the building designed by Architektur Consult is the ‘newsroom‘ – an area of approx. 3,000m² where journalists of various media can work and network very closely with another. Apart from the appealing exterior design, the building is also planned and built so that it could be awarded with the ‘Green Building’ ‘Gold’ certificate based on the ‘LEED’ Standard (‘Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design’).
In total, the Styria Media Center offers space for approx. 1,200 employees, with the multi-storey car park next to the center holding 210 parking lots.
Thomas Lorenz ZT GmbH was responsible for the complete structural engineering and accompanied the project from the preliminary draft until its completion. We would like to congratulate Architektur Consult on the brilliant design and wish Styria Media Group all the best in their new home.
