In Wenden, the southernmost town of the german region of Sauerland electro mechanical actuators for water management, the power plant sector and the oil and gas industry are manufactured.
The special cut of the new building of the Drehmo GmbH is owed the topographical situation in this region. The moving landscape caused the terracing of the landscape and produces irregularly shaped lot. The unusual floor plan, generated by this contour, and the hillside situation with a view over the valley determine the character and exceptional styling.

Following the end of commercial mining in Alsdorf, the centrally-located industrial premises of coal mine „Anna“ will be converted into an attractive residential and commercial area which will include the “Anna Park“. As part of the development, we created a design concept to convert the mine‘s blacksmith and change&washroom buildings into “Energeticon” – an exhibition designed by Stuttgart-based “Atelier Brueckner” focussing on energy-related topics – not only showcasing the history of mining but also allowing visitors to experience basic principles of energy and learn about trendsetting and forward-looking technologies.

At the award ceremony of 2014 “Carl-Friedrich Fischer Prize for humane housing“, the head-end buildings of the Quarter of Nations have been awarded with one of the first prizes. The Hamburg housing project impressed the Jury, consisting of Christiane Ruth Hansmann (foundation director), Uli Hellweg (IBA Hamburg GmbH) and Professor Jörn Walter (Oberbaudirektor Hamburg), with its combination of a social housing building with a passive house. Out of 90 entered projects from the Hamburg urban area, in addition to the Quarter of Nations, the “Neue Hamburger Terrassen“ (LAN Architekten) and the “Gartenquartier Kleine Horst“ (SEHW Architekten) also received awards. The award, which was first made this year, aims to promote the intention of the former Regierungsbaumeister, Carl-Friedrich Fischer, to provide humane housing in the city and nearby.

The installation is comprised of 81 cardboard boxes of 70x70x70 cm which are suspended on the ceiling in a grid of 80×80 cm. The boxes hang between floor and ceiling and can be seen from two different levels. 20 dc-motors are mounted and distributed along the handrail of the first floor. When activated, they set the boxes in motion by means of thinn nylon ropes connected vertically to the individual boxes, causing them to move with varying intensity and directions. Since the spaces between the boxes are small, the movement of one box is affecting neighboring boxes, leading to a very complex overall performance of the suspension, which constantly changes and progresses. The collision of the boxes and the friction caused when they collide gives rise to a multitude of sounds and noises. The acoustic perspective changes as the viewer moves along the exhibition space and can be experienced in constantly new ways. This installation was conceptualized, developed and presented in joint collaboration between Zimoun (artist) and Hannes Zweifel (architect).
