The inner court of the Rossauer barracks in Vienna is part of an urban and architecturally valuable object which serves as a distinctive landmark in central Vienna and is protected as a historic monument due to its exceptional position. This initial situation required a highly sensitive approach in the implementation of the planned new building for 400 office work stations for the Ministry of National Defense and Sport.

The complex consists of three building units which functions as a whole. The first unit, with a built area of 1700 square meters, accommodates the DGIT area and DGV, while the second unit, with a built area of 1000 square meters, contains ANAF’s office spaces. The two units are linked by a connecting body which on the ground floor takes the form of an atrium that directs traffic flow, while at the upper level functions as a vertical circulation and connection point.

Corujas building, located in Vila Madalena, is a building of offices of several sizes and shapes. The proposal for this structure is creating a more humanized space for work, going in the opposite direction to the traditional mirrored glass cubes located in regions of São Paulo, such as Faria Lima or Berrini Avenues.

Bielefeld’s eastern city centre experienced significant changes in recent years. With the start of industrialisation and for the following decades, its nature was primarily commercial, presenting a heterogeneous, hardly urban appearance. The potential for development of this area, bordering directly on the city centre, was recognised already in the eighties. Increasing vacancy rates provided the impetus for structural reorganisation of this area, with the objective of mixed residential and industrial use.

Steel making is a sophisticated process. Extruding, rolling, extending—the dynamic flow gives birth to the basic element of modern building structure, the steel bar. A primary goal of our project was to capture the suddenness of the motion, a moment that sustains pressure, force, and heat. The complexity is reflected in the building’s multifaceted function, encompassing areas for administration and accommodation as well as a canteen, auditorium, and gallery. Moreover, a narratively arranged visitors’ route is integrated into the building’s circulation system. These features also shape the buildings and connecting bridge.

Since 1948, Congregation Beth Israel has been located in Vancouver on Oak Street, a busy arterial corridor and historical focal point for various congregations and institutions. No longer able to meet the needs of the congregation, the facility has been extensively renovated and expanded. The existing synagogue has been retained and re-purposed for social and educational activities to provide a buffer between Oak Street and a new house of worship.

The project concerns the recovery of an Ex-Furnace in Riccione, an industrial complex for producing bricks, built in 1908 and decommissioned in 1970. The whole intervention area is 40.000 mq; the covered surface is 3.400mq. Old destinations give way to the new ones, exploiting the existing spatial possibilities, maintaining the shapes of the old body factory as historical memory of the place: inside of it will be placed a secondary school for 450 students, a theatre with 650 seats, a headquarters office, as well as the organization of the external spaces. The project aims to reduce the environmental impact, replacing the old buildings with new ones characterized by high energy efficiency, without filling more surfaces. The intervention is imprinted on one side to recover and give value the existing masonry elements, on the other side to distinguish the new elements from the old ones, maintaining a compositional coherence throughout the intervention. Outside the brise soleil in brick elements determine the homogeneous backdrop of the original architectural forms, using a traditional material in an innovative way: they give unity to the whole composition and at the same time they underline the existing brickwork. The two buildings of the school centre, whose technical aspects are cuttingedge, easily conform with the ruins of a former brick furnace.
