Schwarzwaldblock in Mannheim, Germany by STEFAN FORSTER ARCHITEKTEN

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

Article source: STEFAN FORSTER ARCHITEKTEN

Due to irreparable damage, the existing buildings in this block had to be demolished. This was done in stages and construction work on the new residential buildings proceeded in four phases. Careful management of the construction project enabled the residents to remain in the development. The new apartments are well equipped and barrier-free in design; on the ground floor the apartments have a garden, on the main floors, broad balconies and on the top floors, generous roof terraces. This development reinstates the closed city-block structure at this point, with a clearly defined street side and a shared, private courtyard behind; as such it adheres to the existing development structure in the urban district of Lindenhof. Details such as the sandstone clinker-clad ground floor and the concrete windowsills are also taken from the forms found in the built environment of the immediate vicinity. Spread over nine years, this construction project provides a total of 235 cooperative housing apartments.

Mainz Markthäuser 11-13 in Germany by Studio Fuksas

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2016

Article source: Studio Fuksas

The building is located in the centre of the city of Mainz. The façade looks towards a historical pedestrian square and towards the milestone of the city, the Mainzer Dom (Mainz Cathedral), built in the X century. Alongside there is a shopping centre, built in 1970.

Like many other European city centres, this important location has been compromised by thoughtless projects dating back to the mid-20th-century and post-war reparation work. Nothing is authentic (even the historical buildings are almost all reconstructed).  Nevertheless, the principle of conservation prevailed, so the city centre has become an eclectic mix, synonym for beauty.

CMYK House in Moers, Germany by MCKNHM Architects BDA

Friday, July 29th, 2016

Article source: MCKNHM Architects BDA 

“Our concept was aiming towards the impossible: To add something new that will change the whole perception and experience of the site but to blend in at the same time.”

History: When the father of the client bought the plot of land besides an open gravel pit south of Moers, Germany in the late fifties, it was still unclear if the mine would be converted into a landfill of garbage or a lake. Luckily, the family ended up with a villa at an idyllic lake that is surrounded by a forest. Because of the possible landfill at the time of construction, the layout of the house was orientated away from this now beautiful nature reserve: The extensive paved driveway was situated between the house and the fantastic nature setting and an existing garage was spatially blocking the connection towards the lake. Inside the house only a view spaces provided a view of the lake.

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

Article source: MCKNHM Architects BDA

The concept for an art storage building references the spatial qualities of two world famous museums. These qualities are organized with the building typology of a library in mind. The final result is a CO2 neutral building that is blending into a delicate park in Brauweiler near Cologne, Germany.

IVG Media Bridge in Munich, Germany by Steidle Architects

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Article source: Steidle Architects

On the industrial site directly neighboring the East Railway Station, the IVG Munich developed a concept for the future of the “new media” many of which were already housed in an existing building on the site.  In order to fulfil the desperately needed extra space requirements for the already fully rented 100,000 square meters of building, Steidle Architects studied the zoning and building situation of this area neighboring the well-known “Kunstpark Ost” (artistic park east).

Luther Memorial Berlin in Germany by Zeller & Moye

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

Article source: Zeller & Moye

A new memorial for Martin Luther will be constructed in central Berlin at the former Neuer Markt next to the St.Marienkirche. The winning proposal of the international competition ‘Luther-Denkmal 2017’ refers in its spatial arrangement to the historical Luther memorial that was destroyed during WWII. Like a mirror image of the original memorial, a negative volume is embossed into the ground. It points to Berlin’s history and emphasises the importance of public space for the society. Looking closely at the steps and the edge detailing, the original shapes of the former memorial become visible as negative imprints. However, the new memorial is not at all a reconstruction of the old one, but presents itself as a contemporary and sculpturally composed memorial in its own right.
