We’re excited to share the news that our Swarovski Manufaktur project received the Tyrolean State Prize for New Building – a prize that honors exemplary buildings in Tirol on a biannual basis. Developed for the Tyrolean crystal manufacturer, the building is a progressive crystal workshop perfectly suited for creative co-creation, rapid prototyping and representation.
The daylight-flooded and generous building is as much a top-notch production facility as it is an innovative creative hub providing new opportunities to work together with customers. The structure cleverly merges design, product development and production into one single facility.
In the pronouncement, the jury praised the new architectural language that Snøhetta has developed for open and cooperative spaces, as well as the conceptual approach which may in the future be representative not only of workshops, but for other types of offices as well.
