Schuppen in Berlin, Germany by brandt + simon architekten

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

Article source: brandt + simon architekten

The untypical facade of coloured plain tiles make this house a peculiar new member of the urban fabric. Simultaneously the hasty passerby will not neccessarily take notice of the greenish structure blending with plants and trees deep in the gap between neighbouring buildings.

Competence Centre Glastroesch in Kempten, Germany by becker architekten

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

Article source: becker architekten

In the midst of a small commercial area on the western borders of the town, the production hall and the office building of the former `schwabenglass` company are situated directly on a heavy traffic street named `Im Allmey`. After a takeover by the Swiss company `glastroesch ag`, the company’s Kempten location was named `interior competence centre` for southern Germany. The subject of the architectural concept was centered around the feasibility of bringing together the newly needed exhibition rooms with the unchanged capacity for required office space.

Eurostars Book Hotel in Munich, Germany by Rieder Smart Elements GmbH

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Article source: Rieder Smart Elements GmbH

The fibreC glassfibre reinforced concrete facade of the Eurostars Book Hotel in Munich is part of a marvellous design idea. The architecture of the building tells its very own story of books as cultural objects. Every floor reflects a literary genre, whereas rooms and corridors are dedicated to famous works. Rieder’s ingeniously formed facade elements represent the turning pages of books, whilst also providing protection from direct solar exposure. A specially developed process allows for manufacturing glassfibre reinforced concrete as round moulds, making individual facades, like the book pages of the Eurostars Book Hotel, possible.
