New Design University

University: New Design University
Course: Master Interior Design and Visual Communication
Tutors: Christine Schwaiger, Christian Prasser, Dieter Spath, Christa Stürzlinger and Vali Potmesil

Statement:

“With the master’s degree in interior design and visual communication, the New Design University (NDU) in Sankt Pölten offers a programme that is unique in Europe. It builds on a highly interdisciplinary and practical combination of interior and graphic communication design.

“Through the interdisciplinary exchange, students equally deepen and expand the competencies of their respective backgrounds in architecture, interior design, graphic and communication design. The freedom to experiment creatively and process-oriented is an essential starting point for any design exercise.

“Multiple cooperations with private and public partners enable studies based in the economic reality, working with internationally leading corporations like Laufen Bathrooms, as in the four projects shown below. Additionally, six master projects working on various briefs between food and sailing are exemplary for the range of the programme.”

Etage liquide common ground (floor) by Julia Lackner

“The etage liquide is an urban food platform that produces sustainable groceries and distributes knowledge, and therefore creates value. It provides a vision of an urban food supply model that describes a new way of producing food locally in the urban realm.

“By combining the potential of growing food indoors with a lively, creative, social atmosphere, a contemporary spatial concept is produced. A deep understanding of natural resources and their preservation is a key aspect of the concept. The etage liquide is an urban hub for people, plants and worms that dissolves the border between private and public to create a space of symbiosis.”

The Harbour project by Luca Szabó

“The Harbour project promotes a sailing school at Lake Balaton in Hungary. It provides a multifunctional space for the world of sailing. Since various sailing schools are distributed around the lake, the Harbour project would serve as the centre of sailing education for young competitors, with well-known professional sailors and trainers invited every week to provide practical and theoretical training.

“The centre incorporates teaching, leisure and boat maintaining activities. The surrounding site is designed in continuity with the interior, to create a pleasant and practical place for boats and sailors.”

Zum Strauss – Vegan Cafe and Restaurant by Daniela Scheich

“In a glasshouse directly above the river, the red and green colour code guides the design concept so it can be seen from afar. The concept is a cafe and restaurant that offers exclusively vegan and regional dishes. Nevertheless, Zum Strauss is a restaurant for everyone, with the help of plant-based meat and fish dishes as meat lovers should also be invited.

“In the exhibition area, prejudices against veganism are to be discussed, to make visitors think and rethink. For it is not about abandoning animal products completely, but about their reduced and conscious enjoyment. For the good of animals, the environment and our health.”

Eego Co Space by Irene Schacherhofer

“Ergo Co Space deals with the concept and design of a space for a shared occupational therapy practice. The health concept prioritises the connection to nature as well as social interaction and reintegration. The spatial focus lies particularly on the implementation of a partitioned space concept, allowing for several simultaneous activities without mutual interference.

“Additionally, meeting and silent areas are provided, where users and visitors can meet informally for therapies and stay in a communicative setting resembling an enhancing atmosphere.”

Lumo by Carmen Petterbauer

“Lumo is a variable furniture and space concept which can be implemented in most existing kindergartens and preschools in urban areas, independent of group sizes. It facilitates a holistic education and enables a completely new way of thinking and practice, in terms of creativity and independence of children aged three to six years.

“Lumo aims to dissolve spatial boundaries. The idea is based on reform pedagogical approaches and thus becomes an interdisciplinary project that combines pedagogy, interior architecture and design. It creates a new spatial experience for children and educators.”

New Swing – The Clubhouse Golfpark Klopeinersee by Katharina Rudolf

“The idea is not only to optimise the use of this building but also to include the aspect of its graphic design. I renewed the corporate design and made it more youthful without neglecting the traditions of golf.

“An intelligent spatial layout distinguishes the restaurant as a focal point. The locker rooms and toilets are placed according to practical considerations, the shop becomes inviting, and the secretary’s office remains in place but is given a well-lit room. The newly acquired upper floor will also provide spacious multi-purpose rooms and suites for overnight guests.”

“Zero Zero” Projekt  by student group LAUFEN x NDU

“As part of the general theme of the Austrian Architecture Days: Living, Learning, Space, first year student projects are exhibited at the Laufen Space Vienna. Students analysed the often neglected sanitary facilities in schools and proposed new design approaches. The focus was not only on functional but also on social aspects and the importance of these spaces as informal meeting spaces in schools.

“Especially since the increased discussion on gender and inclusivity, places like toilets with their binary designation have come under scrutiny. The prototypical projects are on show at Laufen Space Vienna until next year.”

Musterschule by Leonie Georgopoulos and Lisa Hirsch

“This modular design concept for gender-neutral sanitary spaces is designed for a school with pupils aged ten to 18 years. The concept focuses on the implementation of the communicative atmosphere of a marketplace. The open floor plan generates circulation and provides an essential meeting point in the school.

“Please scan the QR-Code for an inside view! Based on interviews with pupils of a Viennese school, urinals were abandoned due to hygiene and body size aspects. The basic shapes, square and quadrant, form spatial elements in various combinations. The layering of transparent planes creates a visual screen.”

The Art of Diversity by Hannah Dittrich and Sarah Passian

“This project for a school with a focus on artistic education proposes an open floor plan without any gender-specific segregation. The central element – a spiral-shaped station with washbasins and an enclosure for three urinals – is accessible from all sides and provides a bench for additional social interactions.

“Each toilet cell is dedicated to another influential artist boards attached to the inside of the doors provide additional information. Coloured patterns from a wide and diverse spectrum are applied to the walls to match the selected artists.”

Edu-pipes by Mona Matula and Julia Heinzelmaier

“Even today, more boys than girls take the path of technical education. This imbalance, together with the gender issue, raises the question of how open the sanitary facilities in a technical school can be to create a place to stay but also to provide the necessary privacy.

“The central element is a washstand, inspired by a workbench designed to reflect the technical focus of the school’s curriculum. Wayfinding is based on a piping system and the graphics of technical drawings, which also provide educational support.”
