BUWOG Customer and Administrative Centre wins the 2022 FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Award

  • International award in silver in the category “Office”  
  • Real estate association FIABCI awards the most outstanding real estate projects in the worldwide competition

In summer 2020, BUWOG's new customer and administrative building opened in a prominent location in Vienna's city centre and was awarded the FIABCI Prix d'Excellence d'Autriche in the same year as winner in the category “Commercial”. This national award subsequently allowed the project to be submitted to the 2022 FIABCI World Prix d'Excellence Awards, where BUWOG was also convincing: On 9 June 2022, this year’s winners were honoured at an exclusive gala evening in Paris, and BUWOG won the silver award in the category “Office” for the Customer and Administrative Centre.

The FIABCI World Prix d'Excellence Awards recognise projects that best embody excellence in all of the real estate disciplines involved in their creation. They concretely illustrate the FIABCI ideal of providing society an optimal solution to its real estate needs. The award is presented by an international jury of top real estate professionals and experts in order to reward the overall merit of the projects and not merely their aesthetics, functionality or size. The international FIABCI World Prix d'Excellence real estate award has been presented since 1992 and been dubbed the “Oscar of the property world” by the Wall Street Journal. It is considered one of the most coveted international awards for development projects.


“It’s simply unbelievable,” says an enthusiastic Andreas Holler, BUWOG’s managing director responsible for development. “Since it was founded over 70 years ago, BUWOG has focused on the development of premium residential construction, which makes us all the more delighted and proud that our Customer and Administrative Centre has been honoured as a prestigious project in the office sector with this special award at an international level. Mr Holler’s thanks extend above all to the entire project team, which made this extraordinary new building in Vienna's city centre possible with full commitment and dedication.




Innovative new building in the heart of Vienna

Completed in spring of 2020, the new BUWOG location (architecture: the consortium Schuberth / Stadler Prenn / Ostertag) was not only compelling with its original external appearance and premium interior (interior design: architectural firm Atelier Heiss); from the bright reception area to the stylish bistro, the friendly design of the customer area, the modern office levels to the rooftop terrace with a breathtaking panorama of the city: everything was done here to create the best possible conditions for work. Andreas Holler: "For me as managing director of development, Rathausstraße 1 is a project that's close to my heart. I'm proud that our modern office has been recognised with this prestigious award for its innovative concepts in architecture and interior design as well as in the areas of sustainability, work-life balance and healthy workplace.”

BUWOG's Customer and Administrative Centre has already won the gold certificate from ÖGNI (the  Austrian Sustainable Building Council).
