MESSER Gas Filling Station in Budapest, Hungary by A4 Studio Ltd.

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Article source: A4 Studio Ltd.

The building process of the Oxygen and Dissousgas Company (ODV) started in 1952 in Újpest, the brownfield belt of Budapest. Because of its proximity to the Danube river Újpest was the area of industrial developments already in the 1920’s and 30’s (tannery, thread factory, lamp factory). The valuable original brick buildings were completed through continuous development until 1963. The MESSER company – the leading manufacturer and distributor of special technical and medical gases in Europe – purchased the site in 1988. Our company, A4 Studio accepted the commission in 2008 for designing the new production hall, laboratory, depositories and offices on the 47 000 m2 site. Our first design approaches reckoned with a new building (see images) but after an accurate architectural and structural analysis we decided in agreement with the investor to utilize the original brick buildings with modern extensions.  Design process happened in 2010-11 (see images). The refurbishment was completed in the summer of 2012 with 21st century architectural means and materials (anthracite colored metal cladding, glass surfaces, exposed concrete), the design indicates old and new structures.

Sustainable Gas Station Avia Marees in Den Oever, The Netherlands by Knevel Architecten BV

The commission concerns the construction of a sustainable gas station and related program for Avia Marees close to the ‘Afsluitdijk’ and the exit of motorway A7 in Den Oever. The gas station is located on a prominent location in the industrial area between provincial roald N99 and the mainroad to Den Oever. The location will combine the weekly or even daily practice of fuelling with office space and a fishmonger. This development proposes principles such as sustainability, specific crafts from the region and climate neutral buildings. On a long plot, a two sided orientated design expresses a division in key elements. This results in a visual en physic relation between the Havenweg (the main road to the village) and the N99. From the Havenweg the building could be described as inviting and form the N99 it is highly visible and spatially interesting.
