The ORF regional studios are branch offices of the ORF in the individual federal states . The state studios were founded in 1967 under ORF general director Gerd Bacher . Since 1975 there has also been a regional studio in Bolzano for the German-speaking South Tyrolean population.

In the radio sector, the programs of the respective Ö2 station are produced and broadcast from the state studios. The Carinthia regional studio also produces programs on Radio AGORA . For television, the programs Bundesland today are broadcast as news programs on ORF 2 regionally every day at 7:00 p.m. On Sundays at 6:30 p.m., a regional studio broadcasts Austria's specific image nationwide. Similar topics with a little more homeland reference are dealt with in the show Erlebnis Österreich, which is also produced by the regional studios, on Saturdays at 5:05 p.m. Each regional studio creates a local edition of ORF.at on the Internet .

The state studios also play a role in the national news and magazine programs. For the time in the picture , contributions from the respective federal state are usually delivered completely (i.e. completely cut) from the state studio to the ORF center Küniglberg in Vienna XIII . In the case of magazine programs such as Thema or Der Report, however, a designer or editor usually travels from Vienna to the federal states and the state studio only provides the camera team and sometimes the editing suite with editor .

The seat of the state studios is in each of the state capitals, with the exception of the state studio Vorarlberg, which is located in the largest city in the state, Dornbirn . There is also a studio in Vienna that is independent of the headquarters on Küniglberg and is housed in the Funkhaus Wien on Argentinierstraße. Each state studio has a state director at the top.


All state studios (with the exception of Vienna) were structurally planned by the architect Gustav Peichl , so that uniformity can be established in all federal states. Peichl proceeded from the principle of technical functional buildings, which exude a certain technical aesthetic and should not hide its function by any structural prettiness . Architecturally, the state studios are reminiscent of the Maison de Radio France , which opened in Paris in 1963 and was designed by Henry Bernard , which also has a spiral structure and focuses on practicality. The recording studios, control rooms, editorial and archive rooms are grouped in a semicircle around a central hall. The management rooms and the garages for the vehicle fleet are housed in a further wing. In addition, each state studio has a public studio with a podium and a roof terrace.
