Two phenomena were important in the project for the IWC museum:

  1. The clock. This museum is a place to showcase the IWC-clock as a small and precious object.
  2. The aesthetic context. In which world in terms of Interior Design do the customers want who purchase an IWC watch want to live?

Blaas general partnership in Bolzano, Italy by monovolume architecture + design

The company Blaas in Bolzano is specialized in electro-mechanics. In the new head office the company presents its new product range and offers repair service.

On the ground floor of the building there is the sales division, on the first floor the exposition area and the repair shop. All administration offices are located on the second floor. The overall impression of the structure is a homogenous and closed building. Nevertheless, there exists a separation between the public and the private sector. The client can perceive this clear and formal internal division already from the outside.

New Taipei City Museum of Art in Taiwan by LOVE architecture and urbanism ZT (designed using AutoCAD)

 
November 12th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: LOVE architecture and urbanism ZT GmbH

“Biennale compact“

The core idea of the project is to create a kind of „condensed-Biennale-concept“ consisting of diverse unique „pavilions“ which are melted together. Each pavilion differs in shape, size, transparency, etc. in order to create a necklace-like structure of various identities.

Thereby this whole structure will be lifted in order to enable the park to flow through the plot. Each unit could host one of the exhibition spaces (of the fine arts museum or the children’s museum), the diverse areas of the research centre and the lecture hall. The units are connectable in order to enable a maximum in flexibility.

Modernisation of the Berchtesgaden Youth Hostel– Design meets Adventure: Haus Untersberg – now open

LAVA’s reinterpretation of an existing youth hostel has resulted in a completely new type of space. The transformation of the youth hostel is underway!

The design is all about the individuality of spaces – LAVA achieved this by the clever reorganisation of the existing volume resulting in different types of bedrooms. And a sustainable makeover includes low energy facade, floor heating, the installation of a bimass pellet heating system and the use of local materials and craftsmanship.

Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas, Missouri by Safdie Architects

The opportunity to design a major new performing arts center was precipitated by two significant decisions: the selection of an extraordinary site crowning the escarpment overlooking the historic warehouse district and the new entertainment district, affording a 180° view of the horizon; and the decision to construct two dedicated halls for symphony, ballet, opera, and theater.
