The FLEDERHAUS as an open space where the visitors can be find a new home and it can again serve as an oasis of relaxation and a symbol of a vertical public sphere.
The visible design of the FLEDERHAUS is dissolving his self when the visitors are using the inside as an open space and get to a new dimension of a public space. Despite its name, it’s not full of bats, but a cluster of hammocks – COME IN AND HANG OUT.
Since 2004 work Heribert Wolfmayr (1973) and Josef Saller (1971) – heri&salli- out spatial drafts, architectural horizons; they work with interventions, bound with surroundings and landscapes which reach their targets in materiality compared with people. By opposites, put into interlinked connections, an architectural idea – as a collection of different substantial barriers and surfaces – reaches its concept and necessity in connection with material, open space and human being. Man as active being always is the reason for possibilities of architectural drafts.
