The 48 units are divided into two distinct entities: 24 units in an R+7 apartment building, which provides a front built on the boulevard Stalingrad, in the north east of the site, the other 24 homes develop into heart shapes in fragmented plots from ground floor to R+3.
An elementary school in a picturesque and tranquil suburbian town near Warsaw.
The building is embedded in a unique setting in the center of the town – surrounded by freestanding family houses, intimate gardens and an old church. In order to tie in to the existing context, the relatively large object was divided into several smaller ones, with the largest part – the gym hidden at the back.

Redevelopment of a centrally located site in Göteborg. The commission was to develop the future empty site remaining from the planned demolishing of the old bridge Göta älvbron.

The Brockman Hall for Physics is a 111,000 SF facility housing classrooms, laboratory space, lecture halls and administrative offices for the Physics Department as well as physicists from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Rice University in Houston, Texas. Driven by Rice University’s belief that some of the most important moments on campus are moments of informal discussion and debate outside of the classroom, the design of the building and landscape seeks to provide a multitude of spaces for lively and inspiring conversation.
The building and landscape reinforce the existing grid of the campus. Dramatic lighting accentuates these formal elements
The project was realized in summer 2011 for a media agency in Germany. As the architecture of the buildings, the brochure layout was clean, simple, minimalist but very elegant, contained only white, grey and a gold print colors, so the visualizations had to integrate perfectly into the design, maintaining the realistic look. Ambrozoom3D realized 8 perspectives (2 for each building, one bird eye and one general south view), and 24 floor plans for each apartment. The floor plans also had to be integrated into the brochure, therefor keeping a minimalist look, with few textures and each of them had to contain some decoration in gold.
