Caritas Ankerbrotfabrik

by buero bauer - Gesellschaft für Orientierung & Identität mbH

A beautiful old brick building and former bread factory in Vienna’s 10th district is home to many galleries, schools etc. nowadays. Object #19 unites many social-creative initiatives: e.g. a thrift store by the catholic charitable service Caritas, a canteen and restaurant.  A significant way finding system blends harmonically with the renovated old building and guides through the building and towards the different locations. Hand-drawn pictograms display the human touch of the initiatives. Almost looking like a sketch or draft, they refer to the walls’ traces of usage from former times. With a character of reduction, the whole signage system contrasts with the building and emphasizes on its power and patina.
