Austria is home to a colorful art and architectural heritage shaped by its unique position in central Europe. Bordering Germanic, Mediterranean and Eastern European lands, Austria’s architecture hints at its neighboring cultures — even while remaining regionally specific. Home to vast mountain ranges and picturesque landscapes, Austrian design is greatly attuned to its environmental contexts, while its urban spaces are more so linked to Europe’s general architectural program.
Vienna, for example, is home to an expansive portfolio of Baroque and Gothic gems. Italian influences were prominent in the nation throughout the 18th century, evident in the famed Belvedere Palace and the Salzburg Cathedral. Most impressive and best known is the nation’s regional rendition of Art Nouveau. Austrian architectural history cannot be told without citing the great Secession Movement, which included the stylized designs of notable architects Joseph Maria Olbirch and Otto Wagner. From the Maison des Majoliques to the famed Secession Building, one will encounter a variety of ornate structures distinct to Austria and made possible by Secessionist thinkers.
And today’s contemporary design program continues to reflect the nation’s history, culture and landscape, generating a paradigm that seesaws between variety and tradition. Of course, the country is a pioneering leader in social housing.
With so many architecture firms to choose from, it’s challenging for clients to identify the industry leaders that will be an ideal fit for their project needs. Fortunately, Architizer is able to provide guidance on the top design firms in Austria based on more than a decade of data and industry knowledge.

Architecture means more than just a single building, more than just a room, a house, a project. It is the desires and longings that turn a room into a living space, a building into reality…
… make a need. As architects, we see it as our task not only to recognize these desires and longings, but also to anticipate them. We can only meet our individual standards if we look behind things and see the people and their emotions behind them. For them we create and build, build a tangible future and design moving, vibrant life.
Our architecture and urban development reflects the inside behind an idea, a concept, turns it outwards and turns it into a publicly accessible object of emotion. As a result, the focus is on the architecture, not the architect.
