The Erick van Egeraat office tower is part of an expressive high rise urban development, south of Amsterdam, named Zuid As. Located in the proximity of the city centre and with direct access to the urban network of public transport and highways, the project incorporates the potential of this unique location. The ambitious programming of a lively, high-density mixture of offices, housing, retail and public space, designed by nine international architects, all contribute to an exceptional development of metropolitan scale.

Jil Sander New Store in Berlin, Germany by Studio Andrea Tognon Architecture

As if to honour its German roots, high-end fashion brand Jil Sander introduced it’s new retail design at the flagship store on the swanky Kurfürstendamm thoroughfare in Berlin. Occupying a ground floor unit of a landmark structure built in 1900 with an ornate art nouveau façade, the new aesthetic, created by Milan-based practice Andrea Tognan Architecture, is almost defiantly modern and understated, and clearly extrapolates Jil Sander‘s clean designs. Geometrical forms of the square and the rectangle largely define the premises, along with more fluent shapes that convey a zen-like sense of spatial harmony, and yet provide functionality at the same time.

Voss High School in Norway by Nordic — Office of Architecture

The new vocational high school at Voss (Norway) designed by Nordic — Office of Architecture and AART architects combines theory and practice in an inspiring learning environment bathed in light with spectacular views of the surrounding landscape.

The new vocational high school at Voss opened this autumn and caters for around 400 students and 100 staff. The Norwegian-Danish team behind several prominent education buildings in Scandinavia took inspiration from the surrounding environment, creating an interpretation of the traditional Norwegian barn common to the area. A composition of “barns” surrounding a series of “farmyards” provides the framework for various educational and social activities. The architects strive to stimulate the students by drawing nature and daylight into the school buildings through the generous glazing and timber cladding both inside and out.

Absam Primary School in Austria by Schenker Salvi Weber

All moved in! The extension of the primary school in the Tyrolean municipality of Absam was completed in September 2016. After one-and-a-half years of construction, kids are now frolicking around in the two-story kindergarten. The first sport classes are already taking place in the triple gymnasium, and sweet sounds are floating down from the new music school under the roof of the historic primary school building.

There wasn’t much space for the new building in the 7000-person community of Absam, the “village of the Olympians” in the Hall-Wattens region, just 20 minutes by car from Innsbruck. So the architects Schenker Salvi Weber – the only ones among the 20 competition participants – decided to situate the sports hall underground and, for structural reasons, build the two-story kindergarten atop in a lightweight wood frame construction.

Pavilion architecture that smoothly fits its surrounding vegetation by limiting the footprint and preserving the existing trees. Moreover, there is no physical barrier thus allowing the view to embrace the entire site. The volumes are made of compressed earth block (CEB), and are covered with light metallic roofs.

Tax Consultancy Office in Vienna, Austria by Söhne & Partner architects

Often, the most exciting thing to see when entering a tax consultancy office it the latest edition of a law book. For one renowned tax consultancy office these days are over: it transforms its reception into a welcoming, comfortable lobby.

While planning the reconstruction of the entire office space, the redesign of the reception and the meeting rooms was announced in a small architectural competition. We were able to convince the jury of our unusual design, which so far has been particularly popular with high-class hotels. Now we are able to implement our ideas of an unconventional tax consultancy design in the look of a feel-good hotel lobby.

The building was constructed in the 19th century and expanded in the years of 1950. This apartment, located at the maximum altimetry of one of the Lisbon city’s seven hills, with a panoramic view to the north and south, is part of this expansion, absent of the characteristics that qualified the original construction as palatial.
