“Schiebel Elektronische Geräte GmbH” arranged a strategy competition in summer 2005 for a production hall with an integrated office building, which should represent the identity of the international aviation company. Because of a nearby testing area in close proximity of an airfield, the site in Wiener Neustadt was chosen as a ideal location. The design of project A01 architects ZT GmbH won the competition and the architects were commissioned to the design the building, the interior and to conduct the construction process. The work started in fall 2005 and lasted until summer 2006. The completion of the interior was finished in 2007. The building is composed of two parts: The office unit is arranged lengthwise facing the street and the production hall is located next to the airfield. The office area holds the major administrative functions of production, marketing, research and education. The meeting room is attached to a generous deck for visitors, which is used for airshows. The function of the employee‘s area was considered to be important and accordingly arranged with an own terrace accessible from the lunchroom. The production area contains two thousand square meters. The hall holds not only an area for assembly and fabrication work, but also an area for design, development and attendance. The autonomous helicopters are developed and manufactured with the latest production processes. The innovative concept and design of the camcopter was awarded with the „Staatspreis für Design 2005“, the highest Austrian design award, and is distributed all around the world.

The idea of constructing a building within a building is explored by expanding the gap between corridors and offices. Similar to how the coastline connects land and sea, a gap between corridor and office is where Qastic’s design exploration emerged. By exploring and expanding this gap, the design and construction of bridges, double height voids, planters, and collaborative voids brought dynamic double height effect to Aparat’s space. As a result of the transparency created by the voids, conversations between employees on upper and lower floors happen at a greater efficiency during the work hours. The glass walls provide opportunities for all 75 work stations to take advantage of natural light and circulation across the entire 600 Sqm2 two story space.

The building for the research center of the firm Norvento is located on the border between an industrial enclave and a forest, close to the city of Lugo. The project adopts the form that enables the building to open on to the forest and be in a continuum with it, capitalizing on all the attributes that the woods can contribute to the architecture, while closing up on the side facing the adjacent industrial scene. It uses the opportunity to establish a clear-cut scheme through architectural, typological, and spatial attributes.

At the early twenty century Spanish urban planner Cerda believed that the steam tram would dominate the future of transportation in Barcelona and as such designed the “Ensanche”, an urban grid with a 45 degree angle block so that the tram could have enough clearance to turn.
