E20_Private Residence in Pliezhausen, Germany by Steimle Architekten GmbH

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: Steimle Architekten GmbH

The striking residence, a monolith designed of insulating concrete is located on a quiet street with little traffic in the village of Pliezhausen, a good 30 km south of Stuttgart.

Facing the street, the new building presents only a few openings cut deeply into the solid concrete shell. While the crystal-shaped house still relates to the existing built context due to its parallel elongated sides, it contrasts distinctly with the neighboring buildings by virtue of the tapered ends formed by its shorter sides. It is this oblique arrangement of the facades that enables the building to open out to the surrounding outdoor spaces and to offer its inhabitants unexpectedly expansive views in the distance. A conventional gable roof and the gently rising terrain reinforce the angular, sculptural effect of the house, which is designed on a hexagonal ground plan.

ADA1, “An der Alster 1” in Hamburg, Germany by J. MAYER H. Architects

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Article source: J. MAYER H. Architects 

The building site is situated at the intersection between Hamburg’s lively downtown and  its urban landscape that is rich in water and mature trees. It is at the transition from city  to nature, and the gateway building to the bustling metropolitan core.

The horizontal striped facade with its floating “eyes” celebrates the view onto this unique  context. A public park in front of the building continues the design strategy of the facade  into the landscape. The “eyes” in the facade and the platforms in the park enable the  places to meet and contemplate.

Solera Supermarket in Cologne, Germany by Masquespacio

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

Article source: Masquespacio 

Masquespacio just finished their last project in Cologne, Germany, for supermarket chain Solera.

Sevillian entrepreneur Pepa Bascón decided to move to the German city Cologne twenty years ago in search of new adventures. After several experiences in hospitality, more than 10 years ago she decided to set up a small store of Spanish products in the center of Cologne, bringing the best of her native country to Germany. Thanks to the good acceptation of her project years further she decided to constitute a more ambitious wholesaler to attend a growing demand of Spanish products by Italian and Spanish restaurants in and around Cologne and Dusseldorf. The augmenting popularity of Spanish gastronomy in Germany, made that Pepa Bascón in 2016 decided to open a new ‘cash & carry’ supermarket with the aim to offer a specific service to non-professional clients in Cologne. For that she contacted Masquespacio to design her new brand and interior space. The design of the new Solera from around 500 m2 was developed in search of a touch of Mediterranean emotion, mixed with functional features necessary for this type of businesses. The predominating black color offers seriousness, contrasted with several ‘happy’ colors that remind to Spain, without converting themselves in typical Spanish topics. Other elements make us think about Andalucía like the grids with ornaments, as well as the awnings and typical Mediterranean tiles.

New solar energy-plus child day-care centre in Marburg, Germany by opus Architekten

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: opus Architekten  

The design concept identifies three key concerns. Firstly: the need to slot a new building into the topography and character of a 19th century park with respect to its historic neighbouring structures, in particular a nearby chapel. Secondly: the desire to create a welcoming and lively educational environment both for children and the adults who work there. And last but not least: the aspiration to employ innovative technology to create a building that produces more energy than it consumes.
