For the planning of the sea resort Illmitz at Lake Neusiedl we won the 3rd place of the BEST(un)BUILT competition.
Sulphur and Salt
We identify the geological quarry (Mönchhofer Fischerhüttenbruch) as the origin of the unique natural landscape of Illmitz and its surroundings. The action of natural forces in the earth's interior causes the emergence of mineral water, sulphur and salt and the special composition of the soil layers. The subterranean natural forces are the origin of the unique flora and fauna of the surrounding national park and also become the origin of the master plan. Nature makes its way into the interior of the lido via channels and plants and connects the different areas with each other.

Wind and water
The strong wind in this area and the water are the characteristics of Lake Neusiedl. The architectural concept picks up on the dynamics of these forces and makes them visible. A new natural architectural landscape is created that is figuratively shaped by the natural forces that occur, water and wind.
