trans_city is an office for Architecture and Urban Design.

Our practice always takes the larger social context into account; we believe that the built environment should benefit all those who live in and use it. Our working process respects the needs and interests of the many, diverse actors – from households to neighborhoods, from investors to contractors – who are affected by the projects that we conceive.

We use this process to develop inventive floorplans and innovative systems of construction for the buildings that form the framework of the city: projects for housing, for schools, and for small businesses.

And, with an eye on the larger urban fabric, trans_city also develops ecologically responsible and socially sensitive city planning, which thoughtfully configures these building into attractive, well-networked urban precincts

Although we are international in in our origins and experience, the focus of our work is Vienna, a city with an illustrious architectural tradition. For us, it is a home base, a source of inspiration and a laboratory for design, all in one.

Our goal is to make intelligent and beautiful architecture affordable for everyone in the city.


In 2015, Angelika Fitz, Director of the Architekturzentrum Wien, spoke with us about the objectives that drive our work, as well as specific aspects of projects we have planned. For those who would like to know more about how trans_city ticks, here is a link to this interview >>>
