Europe consists of thousands of small towns that compete for recognition. A beautiful and useful force, which can create a strong energy for the future of Europe. One of these towns is Esslingen am Neckar. A city situated in the region of Stuttgart, in the south of Germany. In Esslingen, in the “Neue Weststadt”, a former freight depot with a diverse industrial history, a new office building will be realised. Together with RVI, a developer situated in Saarbrücken, MVRDV design a new Milestone for the city, which will draw attention to the town and its developments, a “crystal rock”.

Like many German cities, Bremen is confronted with an increasing housing shortage and a growing demand for affordable housing.
In response to this, the largest Bremen Housing Association, GEWOBA, has prudently taken on a supplementary extension to their existing 45,000 plus housing stock. In 2011, within the framework of the competition “ungewöhnlich Wohnen” (unusual living), five exemplary lots from a postwar housing area were chosen to investigate the adaptability of the area. The proposals considered contemporary demands for affordable and flexible housing that could offer manifold inhabitant configurations. These housing areas in the Gartendstadt Süd of Neustadt Bremen, offer generous green open areas formed by homogenous four-storey housing blocks.

DIA – Dittel Architekten is responsible for the design concept as well as the planning and execution of the new Tourist Information Centre in Schwäbisch Hall, Southern Germany. The goal of the concept is to use the space to convey the city’s identity and allow this identity to be experienced through digital and analogue contents. Values such as service-orientation and the emerging cultural richness are incorporated into a modern design language, which goes on to form an exciting symbiosis with the traditional nature of the half-timbered building constructed in the 17th century. The area, which is under heritage protection, was completely renovated as part of the new concept. The Tourist Information Centre opened on 06 December 2017.

Starting from 2017 the interior design is created in Italy by Matteo Thun and his Milanese team – with natural materials and soft colours. It generates lightness, generosity but yet privacy.
The location – IntercityHotel – What makes this well-known German brand so exceptional?
Are best locations and price-performance the only core values of the company?

On the outskirts of the East Westphalian city of Halle the car dealership Ford Hagemeier has taken a big step towards expansion with the construction of a new vehicle hall. With this tripling of the exhibition area it will now have the opportunity to present both the commercial vehicles and the cars from the range of Ford products, oriented towards their target customers. The old vehicle hall will be converted into a performance centre where more sports-oriented vehicles will be exhibited. The new structure, on the other hand, is designed for vehicles that are intended for families and older persons as well as special offers for bargain hunters. The client wants the focus of the buildings towards different customers to be reflected in their architecture. This is why the new vehicle hall will be given a warm atmosphere with the use of wood, which seems to better correspond to the mental conditioning of the defined target groups and that contrasts with the more technical appearance of the old building, which was constructed in 2001 in the style of the Ford store concept.

The 25hours Hotel has found its new home in Munich, in the magnificent building at Bahnhofplatz 1. The listed structure was built in 1871 in the Renaissance Revival style. In the last century, it served as a building for the postal service and was the home of the royal telegraph station. During the war, the building was almost completely destroyed; however, it was rebuilt according to its original appearance.
