Art museum in Marl, Germany by Wingårdhs

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

Article source: Wingårdhs

Long and narrow like a tube, but solid and unmovable like a block of concrete – in between these two extremes stands the extension to the Marl town hall, designed by Bakema and van den Broek in 1958-62. Their ponderous brutalism resounds through the massive walls of the extension, where the trees on the site have been made to leave their imprint. A relief art work signed by artist Lars Bergström. The position behind the main building makes the extension fall in with the pattern of the place. At the same time, its positioning above the glass boxes of the entrance and the café gives the concrete tube a lightness which is underscored by the long cantilever overlooking the lake. The 7×7 metre narrow art gallery is adapted to the purpose of accommodating temporary sculpture exhibitions. Clear incident lighting from large apertures in various directions varies the character of the 85-metre-long room and links it to the sculpture park outside. A new catwalk over the refurbished piazza points the way directly to the new entrance.

A large Berlin block of flats in Bötzow district, built in 1905, with a representative front building, side wing and rear wing was extensively refurbished in a partially inhabited state.

Drubba Moments in Baden-Württemberg, Germany by Ippolito Fleitz Group GmbH

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

Article source: Ippolito Fleitz Group GmbH 

Titisee-Neustadt is a peaceful small town in the upper reaches of the Black Forest, which has become a favourite destination for tourists from Asia. With its idyllic lakeside position in the romantic Black Forest, many appreciate how it offers a polar opposite to their urban, industrialised lifestyle. And of course shopping is now as important a part of any German holiday as visiting Cologne Cathedral or Munich’s Hofbräuhaus beerhall.

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.
