and problem-solving skills are substantial factors in the company’s success.“We focus on finding custom-made solutions for clients, as well as quality assurance during all project phases,”Josef Moser says. Getting inspired by travelling, market monitoring and the will to foster constant further development, the architects put special emphasis on hospital and healthcare, as well as hotel and residential construction. A look to the East Milestones in the international work portfolio of Moser Architects include the Minsk Tower. At 165 metres, the highest tower in Belarus is characterised by its unconventional bent glass façade and shows architectural expertise and skills. A combined office and administrative skyscraper, the building also contains a luxurious hotel with 265 rooms. Other outstanding designs and thoughtthrough architectural approaches can be found all over the world. In Russia, the headquarters of the JSCB Moscow Indus-
trial Bank impresses with an unusual façade. Seemingly millions of colourful Post-it notes dominate the outside of the building and make it a real eyecatcher. A multifunctional sport-recreational and hotel complex in Russia’s Krasnogorsk is a prime example of innovation. The planned new resort, with its main focus on diagnostic and outpatient medical treatment for all kinds of sport-related health problems, will be the first of its kind in Russia. The resort will consist of a four-star resort hotel, conference areas, a wellness and medical spa, serviced apartments, a sport medical diagnostic centre and a sport and entertainment centre. Another modern architectural example is the Barakat hospital, which will be finished in 2017. The hospital is composed of four areas of specialisation – cardiology, orthopaedics, general medicine and anaesthesia – and Moser Architects have put a special emphasis on meeting every need as the spatial design takes particular account of the variety of patients and their different needs.
Being the architect in charge of the HypoAlpe Adria Bank headquarters in Zagreb, Moser Architects connected the old and the new. The design of the volumes and outdoor spaces, which create fascinating group dynamics, and the modest use of colours distinguishes the building from the surrounding architecture. The interesting form with a diversity of functions describes a project which represents one of the biggest recent investments in building construction in Croatia. A focus on healthcare Moser Architects managed to successfully connect various user requirements in EBG Med Austron, a centre for ion therapy for the treatment of tumour patients, a highquality research centre in the clinical and non-clinical areas and the fourth beam centre for proton and carbon ion therapy worldwide.
