Article source: TWO IN A BOX – ARCHITEKTEN
In May 2015 the visitor information center for the European Green Belt opened. Over an area of more than 1000 square meters in the premises in Windhaag near Freistadt, Upper Austria, the scientifically well founded exhibitions cover most impressively everything from nature and history to the future of the region. Concurrently, the Green Belt Center serves as information center, travel agency with offers for tourists but also as venue and sales shop with regional products. The forest house is about to become an integral part of the tourism in the region Mühlviertel and Danube‐ Moldau.

The new Hall F is an ingenious addition to the previously less developed southeast side of the monumental complex of Wiener Stadthalle, creating impact even on its own. The concert, show, dance, fashion and even circus venue sits 2,000 spectators. Furthermore, congresses and conventions can be facilitated. Even though it is a particularly appealing urban location, the new edifice does not steal the spotlight from Roland Rainer’s hall, which was built half a century prior.

Cocooning means to be really at home, without any need to go away or to take a trip, or to made a vacation again and try to escape from your day life for a while.
You love your everyday life, your rituals, and the place where all that happens.
This means the everyday real luxury.

The property is located on a very busy intersection. An intervention in the existing building use class made possible better light and sun exposure conditions. In order to defuse the “T”-point, a V-shaped courtyard has been cut into the building. The paths to the access balcony and the ancillary areas are concentrated around the courtyard.
A passage in the East creates a pedestrian connection between Brünnerstraße and a park in the West.

Rethinking the tradition of municipal public housing in Vienna
The Kapellenhof project is coming to Vienna’s 22nd district: 450 new residential units around a shared urban grove.
In collaboration with three residential developers, Migra, Neues Leben, and Wogem, AllesWirdGut and feld72 won the developer’s competition for the construction of 450 apartments on Kapellenweg with a concept informed by the tradition-honored Viennese municipal public housing estate, a clear and confident ensemble laid out around a large communal courtyard: this is the Kapellenhof estate.

Built on an extremely steep piece of land with an area of only 450m², Dietrich│Untertrifaller designed this single family home to best fit the constraints of the site. While a black painted concrete core ties the house to the hill and contains all service rooms, a more open wooden structure was chosen for the living area and bedrooms. The form of the home allows for the focal point of all the interior spaces to be the forests and the Rhine valley below.

Industrial culture can only come about when existing economic and functional practical constraints are successfully transformed into multidimensional design.
The Funder Werk factory building, a paper coating factory, is functionally determined by the process of production. It was to be metamorphosed into “expressive architecture.” The design concept was based on the idea of dismantling the production hall into sculpturally shaped elements. During the design process, the power station with its chimneys, the media bridge, the flying roof, the office and laboratory areas, and the entrances emerged as differentiated, interconnected architectural elements that endow the complex as a whole with an unmistakable head and body. The playful sculptural evocation of the power station with the “dancing chimneys,” the media bridge as a connection between energy and production, the free design of the flying roof as “wings,” the shaped canopies of the entrances, and the corner of the laboratory and office areas dissolved in glass towards the south, all stand out against the hall, which has been consciously kept white and simple.

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.
