As a component of the Vienna Main Station urban development area, the new headquarters for 4,500 employees of the ERSTE Bank is emerging. The design of the open spaces offers the staff and visitors of the ERSTE Campus generous outdoor grounds that also provide attractive public path and plaza areas. Two plazas connected to each other by a public passageway and appointed with plane trees are being developed on the ground floor. The building complex includes four atria on the ground floor (with honey locusts, Japanese maples, as well as shrubs and ground-cover plants).

The garden level on the second floor unfolds over approximately 6000 m² as a spacious grove of Japanese ornamental cherry trees, complemented in spots by pines, as well as maples on the event plateau. This slightly hilly “pulsating garden,” augmented by bushes and grasses, forms the landscaped clip between the individual structural components. Lying in the visual field of the Campus employees, it represents an open space of high use value and makes a major contribution to the improvement of the microclimate.
