In the middle of Frankfurt´s Nordend district, this new residential block was built to passive house standards on the site of a former Naxos-Union factory. Retaining and integrating the distinctive trees along Wingertstrasse was an important part of the design considerations: the comb-like structure of the complex on this side, with its broad area of green in front of the apartments, is a direct response to this situation. The private gardens of the ground-floor apartments are located in the five courtyards. The back of the complex is oriented towards the listed Naxoshalle, the last remaining relic from the site´s former industrial use. On the corner of Wingertstrasse and Wittelsbacherallee the block is finished off conventionally with a corner tower. The continuous clinker cladding on the ground floor strengthens the ensemble character and is also a reference to its urban context. All the dual-aspect apartments have large loggias to the front and to the rear. In total 69 freehold and 47 rental apartments were built here to the passive house standard.

In the historic quarter of Calatrava in the centre of Palma old town buildings are full of history, but time and weather are also talking great toll, very often the palaces are in need of renovation.
And it is in this context that the top two floors of an historic building originating from the 17th century could be joined together with all the roofs creating terraces on 3 levels, taking advantage of the spectacular view of roof landscapes, the cathedral, several churches and the sea, and at the same time enjoying the very quiet green inner court, typical element of the palaces in the medieval city centre.

Štefánikova Street is known as traffic route in the city center, yet it has the potential to be a city boulevard. It has a unique character with a varied structure of buildings from different historical periods. Two original buildings from the fifties and the seventies were reconstructed. Both were previously connected and operationally functioned as one building. Characteristics of both buildings were their to date street-facades (also known as buildings of railway engineering).

Small and cautious interventions try not to destroy the special atmosphere and to retrieve hidden qualities in the refurbishment of a typical Berlin apartment from around 1900.
In three rooms several layers of old color were taken off the extensive moulding on the ceiling. Behind the thick layers of color parts of the original ceiling frescos appeared. Since the ceilings were not painted again, the rooms are being characterized by a lively and diverse feeling full of history. The slight irregularities of a rough lime cement plaster on the walls are equally far away from a too monotonous perfectly smooth surface. The old hardwood flooring was sanded off and treated with a mixture of oil and wax.

Triangulo Corona is located in the State of Mexico on the outskirts of the metropolitan area of Mexico City, on a property of irregular topography crossed by two major regional thoroughfares. Its context is an industrial zone rich in the so called ‘maquiladoras’ and storehouses, neighbouring primary and intermediate schools, a health centre and street markets. The residential environment is one of self-construction, where materials appear in their raw state, devoid of finishes, a quality that defines the architecture and environment of this low-income area.
