Bekaert is a world market and technology leader in steel wire transformation and coatings.The new administrative building is built on a site in Zwevegem, near the Bekaert Technology Center (BTC) site. The architects have opted in favour of a campus model for the building, thus prioritizing the synergy between the new project and the BTC. The building’s implantation, the design of the surrounding area as well as the architectural approach are all conceived in function of this synergy.

The premises were originally designed to house a Soviet-time supercomputer. Rooms were separated from the corridor by the unused air supply shafts. The raised floor (strong enough to bear the supercomputer) was 1.5m above the concrete slab and 1.5 below the entrance level. We decided to take away the shafts along with the raised floor of the corridor. Instead, two new levels were made.

A SIMPLE CUBE RESPONDING TO THE EXISTENT NATURE&ARCHITECTURE: Innsbruck’s central park, the astonishing RIVER INN and the impressing mountain “North Chain”.
Peter lorenz ateliers won the competition unanimously and convinced the client with a technological futuristic concept: open glass façade with “intelligent” sunscreens and individual maximized workplaces. The simple cube is being “sculptured” according to the needs of the entrance and the integration into the context – one city spot of extraordinary beauty. The client is the “Austrian motorway provider” and is keen to realize one of Europe’s most ecological and low energy buildings: 18kw/m2/year maintaining a very high “atmospheric & climate standard”.

What if we stopped zoning? And what if we projected an office building in the middle of a social housing district? The building Aalta in Cenon takes advantage of different economic incentives and of the development of the Bordeaux tramway to densify and create an active interface between Palmer social district and a quiet neighborhood made of small houses.

The complex was designed as a strategic link between the historic city center of Padua and the developments of the modern zone of the city near the railway station. The project intends to house offices and shops in the main body of the building as well as a large parking garage.The site is located along a bend of the river Piovego, the main defining edge of the sixteenth century city, and adjacent to an open landscape and fluvial gardens. The site is a veritable “city gate” where the historical center, recent developments and the fluvial landscape converge.The parking garage is intended as the main car park for those heading to the historic center of town from the outskirts. The commercial building stands as the urban backdrop that screens the impact of the large infrastructure and attempts to regulate the chaotic city street fronts that have grown in the last decades.

Situated in the Antelope Valley, along the Western edge of the Mojave Desert, the Mojave Rivers Ranger Station is designed for administrative and fire personnel from the USDA Forest Service Mojave Rivers Ranger District. Both client and architect aspired to achieve a building appropriate to its context and to the function of the agency. In keeping with the Forest Service’s principles, the ranger station is designed to convey the agency’s roots as an institution with “an ethic of conservation and stewardship, a close tie to the land, and an orientation of service to current and future generations.” The result is a facility whose form and aesthetic is largely shaped by its desert site and climate.

The project “Schlump ONE” is located directly at the underground station Schlump in Eimsbüttel district in Hamburg. The original administration building from the 1950s and 90s was gutted, renovated and expanded, and has now been converted into an office building with four possible rental units per floor. The existing data processing center in the courtyard has been transformed into a private university and expanded to include a new building. The building’s facade has been completely renovated and redesigned to form a single unit that freely interprets the original building’s 1950s linear design. The organic formal language of the facade is continued in the design of interiors. The project is embedded in a sophisticated, open space planning design with oversized tree sculptures.
