Weinviertel, Austria

Our headquarters are located 20 miles North of Vienna in the beautiful Weinviertel region. After a year of planning and 14 months of build-time, it has been opened since August 2017. The total area of 132,000 ft² have three different parts with different functions and purposes. In the 13,000 ft² office area there is an elegant customer area with an inviting foyer and our flagship store. The heart of our headquarters is a 3,200 ft² Atrium.


For the overall visual impression in the building as well as the exterior design, DI Andreas Burghardt is responsible. A design that dispenses with flourishes altogether. It makes the Pro-Ject products radiate even more, thus meeting the highest standards of efficiency and aesthetics. Used as example were box-design electronics - a black sharp-edged cube. The use of glass surfaces creates transparent and modern office space. The outer facade of the office area reflects the grooves of a record.

An autonomous energy system

The energy concept of the headquarters is unique in Austria on this scale. The heating system is entirely self-sufficient. With the energy of the sun, the air and the crystallization energy of the water, the building is heated or cooled. A photovoltaic system on the roof supplies the energy needed to power the heat pump throughout the year. In the summer months, excess energy is fed into the grid, in winter this amount is then withdrawn.

Two “energy sources” are used to supply the heat pumps: First, there are 37 solar air absorbers on the roof of the warehouse. Here, the ambient air heat is extracted, which is used via the heat pump to heat the building. The second “energy source” is the ice storage. A water tank 82 feet long and 50 meters wide, contains 910,000 liters of water. On cold winter days, the heat energy of the water is used by the heat pump for heating. The temperature goes down until water freezes to ice. This concentrated cold energy is used for cooling in the summer and for heating the building in winter.

The Experience

In three listening and demo rooms our Pro-Ject products can be experienced and heard. The flagship store is used as example for global stores like it.


The flagship store is used as example for global stores like it. Next to the plan offices and separate offices, there is a 130 m² development and service area.


The extensive storage area has more than 32,000 ft²: In addition to 6 truck docking stations and a 4,800 ft² order packing area, it includes a small parts warehouse with a height of more than 26 feet. Every year more than 4,000 pallets are shipped to 80 countries worldwide. Whether by parcel, pallet goods or whole containers.
