“We are counting on an annual employee addition of around 30 percent. Our product portfolio has also tripled recently. And we are supporting this growth by expanding our headquarter in Linz,” said Michael J. Kräftner, founder and CEO of CELUM. “After completion, we will offer around 170 jobs in Linz alone – at one of the most spectacular office sites in Austria.”
Expansion and opening of the CELUM campus
CELUM is expanding its campus with the new building to become one of the largest software sites in Austria, which will provide space for the extended CELUM Group as well as other companies. The campus boasts training rooms for more than 100 people, a cafeteria with an alpine-hut design, variable office spaces, rest areas, a basketball court, and its own internet-of-things hardware lab. It will also provide space for start-ups that are supported by CELUM’s own corporate incubator celianventures through a special, integrative investment program.
Focus on sustainability: Clear lines meet organic design
The addition will supplement the first part of the building erected in 2011 by CELUM, internally called “ARK1” because of its yacht-like design. The Viennese architect Franz Schauer is once again responsible for the design. While the existing research and development center ARK1 has the strict lines of the minimal Bauhaus style, ARK2 is an organic, wing-shaped tower aligned to the northwest and equipped with large photovoltaic surfaces. As a result of this low-energy design, minimal cooling and glare protection will be needed in the future. Approximately 3.5 million euro of investments are planned for the new building. Almost 8 million euro were invested in the whole site.
