ÖAMTC Mobility Centre for the Yellow Angels
In the 1950s, the yellow motorbikes were the reason why the club members gave the OAMTC breakdown service drivers the name “Yellow Angels”. Since then, the ÖAMTC has remained faithful to the colours of yellow and black.
The new ÖAMTC Mobility Centre in Vienna stands out impressively from its environment with its circular and star-shaped floor plan and a façade made from glass and steel. The dynamism which is expressed by the architecture is also the leitmotif in the interior design. Using the reception and advice counters, which were installed by Hochgerner Möbelwerkstätte GmbH, as an example, this looks as follows: each of the seven counters is characterised by thermoformed surfaces and sinking or rising counter boards. The designs originate from the Viennese architectural practice Pichler & Traupmann and take functional aspects, such as bag rests or wheelchair access, into consideration in the design concept.
The interior design revives the corporate colours yellow and black.
3D models for the coordination of technical details
Only solid surface materials were worth considering, in order to make the counter fronts and covers look like they come from a single cast. The choice of material and colours fell on Corian in Pearl Grey and Deep Nocturne. With Hasenkopf Industrie Manufaktur, Hochgerner Möbelwerkstätte brought a long-standing, reliable partner on board which demonstrates its strengths over and above the processing of solid surface materials, for example in the handling of CAD data. Depending on the complexity of the order, Hasenkopf uses the available 2D data to make detailed 3D models during the production planning process, and these then make the coordination and monitoring of the technical details easier for Hasenkopf’s customers. The order also included two seating elements and 32 washstands.
The new ÖAMTC headquarters in Vienna is a symbol of mobility.
