About us

After 80 years of an architectural vacuum on the shores of lake Millstattersee, the Erwin and Marion Soravia decided to create a second landmark. In addition to the Villa S., designed by the architects Coop Himme(l)blau, Hans Hollein was commissioned to design SoART Millstättersee. Erwin and Marion Soravia built both structures with the aim of encouraging a critical exploration of architecture and to make a contribution to raising awareness of contemporary architectural design in Carinthia.


SoART Millstättersee is a project of the SoART GmbH. The private trust SoART is a private initiative of Erwin and Marion Soravia. Erwin Soravia is a 50% owner of the Soravia Group. The Soravia Group is furthermore 30% owner of the auction house “Dorotheum” and engages in art sponsoring for more than 15 years (e.g. the “Soravia Wing” at the Albertina/Vienna, “Artist’s Kitchen” - an artist in residence programme/Vienna, art in public/megaboard Vienna, restauration and operation of the “Sophiensäle”/Vienna).
