ETH Bale in Basel, Switzerland by KUBOTA & BACHMANN ARCHITECTS GmBH

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

Article source: KUBOTA & BACHMANN ARCHITECTS GmBH

Urban strategy

The new ETH building is conceived as an efficient and flexible architectural device, providing an answer to the multiple aspects shaping its complex environment.

On the one hand, the landscape and the urban quality of the public spaces around the building condition the building’s insertion.  The respect of the historical urban fabric, in particular the Heritage garden in the south facade of the site, is essential as it constitutes an important area of the city urban fabric throughout the centuries. At the same time, all the classed trees in the site will be preserved.

FROZEN TIME CITIZEN IN BASELWORLD

‘Frozen time’ has been presented for a Japanese watch brand CITIZEN in Baselworld which is the largest watch and jewel industry exhibition in the world. In this year, the main exhibition hall has been fully renewed, therefore all the brands are intended to express their next 4 year’s vision. In order to conceive their brand identity almost all the brands has designed a fully new booth for this year’s exhibition. CITIZEN as a Japanese watchmaker took their approach to represent their brand identity differently in this context. Instead of just renewing entire booth for next 4 years, they have reserved a large reception space to be opened and to present an installation for CITIZEN every year as space to evolve and to express their fundamental identity of ‘Challenging sprits’.

Kirchplatz Office + Residence in Basel, Switzerland by Oppenheim Architecture + Design in collaboration with Huesler Architekten

Friday, August 10th, 2012

Article source: Oppenheim Architecture + Design

The design of this adaptive re-use project was born initially out of a design competition initiated by the City of Muttenz/Basel. The design was based on the renovation of an historic farmhouse situated within the historic center core of the city. The original farmhouse was constructed in 1743.  Today the converted farmhouse serves as an office for an architectural design company, provides community meeting space, and serves as a compelling link to a new, adjacent private residence.

Neues Stadt-Casino in Basel, Switzerland by Zaha Hadid Architects

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

An L-shaped volume that gives a new identity to the Stadt-Casino, enclosing the existing music hall and connecting it with the adjacent Hans Huber Hall. This homogeneous, plastic volume is differentiated and articulated by bulging and inverting its surface, enclosing ‘foreign bodies’ and hollowing it out to create a generous entrance hall.

The façade of the old music hall and the Hans Huber Hall create the main façade for the Neues Stadt Casino along the Steinenberg. The continuation of the two buildings, highlighted by a cut or slice, allows the front surface of the new building to become cohesive whilst the new volume remains sufficiently distanced from the existing building.

Article source: OKRA, Maxwan A+U, and Basler&Hofmann

Dutch success in Basel

The team of OKRA, Maxwan A+U, and Basler&Hofmann has won the competition for the concept design for the Basel city center. The proposal provides an overall view on quality of public realm in the city centre for the next decades, and focuses on creating a green and vibrant landscape city, providing spaces that create a ‘shared space 2.0’. The plan provides tools for transformation of a large area in the city centre, expanding from the train station SBB and the railway station Badischer Bahnhof on the other side of the river Rhine. Even more than today, the Basel city centre will be a focal point for the entire tri-national, expanding over the German and French borders.
