“Schiebel Elektronische Geräte GmbH” arranged a strategy competition in summer 2005 for a production hall with an integrated office building, which should represent the identity of the international aviation company. Because of a nearby testing area in close proximity of an airfield, the site in Wiener Neustadt was chosen as a ideal location. The design of project A01 architects ZT GmbH won the competition and the architects were commissioned to the design the building, the interior and to conduct the construction process. The work started in fall 2005 and lasted until summer 2006. The completion of the interior was finished in 2007. The building is composed of two parts: The office unit is arranged lengthwise facing the street and the production hall is located next to the airfield. The office area holds the major administrative functions of production, marketing, research and education. The meeting room is attached to a generous deck for visitors, which is used for airshows. The function of the employee‘s area was considered to be important and accordingly arranged with an own terrace accessible from the lunchroom. The production area contains two thousand square meters. The hall holds not only an area for assembly and fabrication work, but also an area for design, development and attendance. The autonomous helicopters are developed and manufactured with the latest production processes. The innovative concept and design of the camcopter was awarded with the „Staatspreis für Design 2005“, the highest Austrian design award, and is distributed all around the world.

Residence Ödberg in Klosterneugurg, Austria by project A01 architects

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

Article source: project A01 architects  

The idea to build a residence with a central courtyard, following the perception of the well-known case study houses, was the initial approach for the project. The living area gathers around this open space and the pool frames the landscape, thereby enclosing the courtyard. Controlled outlooks and space-interacting structures open up the building towards the surrounding nature and at the same time give form to the self-contained building with its central element. The sloping terrain is raised up to a constructed platform, simultaneously extending the garden area.

Markthal Rotterdam in The Netherlands by MVRDV

Article source: MVRDV

The Market Hall is a sustainable combination of food, leisure, living and parking, fully integrated to celebrate and enhance the synergetic possibilities of the different functions. A secure, covered square emerges beneath an arc, conceived as an inversion of a typical market square and its surrounding buildings. During the day it serves as central market hall, after hours the hall becomes an enormous, covered, well lit public space.

Liberty Lounge in Seoul, Korea by Simplex Architecture

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

Article source: Simplex Architecture

The site is located in an alley, a few blocks away from Dosandae-ro – a busy boulevard in Seoul’s Gangnam district. The area used to be a low-rise residential district in the past, but now rapidly transforming into a commercial district full of shops and restaurants. The existing building had a simple rectangular structure with a courtyard in the middle, using concrete blocks and blackened steel as a major finish material. The main interest in designing the building was to keep the existing materiality, yet to make enough alteration to accommodate the new program. The concrete block wall on the north was maintained in order to preserve the original materiality of the building, and the blackened steel was mainly used for the newly built walls.

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

Article source: studioenricopasti

The NOBIS CAFE ‘project, born in the historic center of the city of Verona, is housed inside a historic building, where the same masonry of the 1500s is brought to the sight to create a contrast to the rest of the room.

We wanted to create a contrast between the historicity of the building and the search for materials with a strong personality.

Camolair in Tbilisi, Georgia by Stipfold

The Building’s full-fledged relationship with natural light is exquisitely balanced with privacy; The roadside windows let daylight illuminate the living room and the second floor bedrooms, but their positioning makes it impossible for an outsider to grasp interior activities.

The Cave in Jalisco, México by Abraham Cota Paredes Arquitectos

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Article source: Abraham Cota Paredes Arquitectos

The best way to get to know an architect is to know their projects, they speak for us, unmask us when the work is honest, they exist as a mirror of who we are. There is something behind the cave that speaks of who I am, that form of an enclosed cube that seeks to be hidden from the world, while showing openings that exhibit a contradiction, perhaps I do not want to remain apart from the world, as a proof these narrow cracks show a characteristic from mankind, The longing of being known and loved.
