Olympic Village

The Olympic Village in Innsbruck represents the habitat concept in an impressive way: the building designed according to passive-house standards, was built to accommodate 1600 athletes at the Youth Olympic Games 2012 held in the capital city of the Austrian federal state of Tyrol. The project was planned with foresight, with the aim of subsequent reuse as non-profit housing for 444 families and assisted living for senior citizens; the complex includes a police station as well as a percent-for-art programme.
