When your founder lives the motto, "Architecture should simply be fun," going to work each day must be an absolute joy! Such is the case for the team at Livingpool Architecture and Design in Vienna, Austria, which Klaus Heissbauer founded in 2001. The firm focuses primarily on private housing projects, including family homes and loft conversions, and employs Vectorworks Architect with Renderworks software to blend their appreciation for the beauty of architecture with smart technology. We recently had the chance to explore a few of this firm's projects, and we're sharing them in a new user success story linked below.
