The new white oil terminal bridge is an elegant, curved structure. It spans the 70m wide entrance to the oil terminal harbour in Raunheim with a spiralling access ramp. This sculptural bridge design stems from Frankfurt architects schneider+schumacher.
The clients for the bridge appointed Schüßler-Plan as structural engineers. The bridge’s location is, on the one hand, influenced by the industrial character of the harbour, and on the other, by the River Main that runs parallel to it, with its attractive embankment and mature trees. The bridge will primarily be used by cyclists and pedestrians.

NO WÓDKA is a concept store that shows a fine selection of todays’ lively Polish art and design in Berlin.
The main concept created by KONTENT brings a new approach to product display that thinks outside the norm of standard wall mounted shelves. Designers wanted shop to be a paraphrase of a wardrobe in which you enter. The result is a large, self-supporting structure made of scaffold beams and as the shop name NO WÓDKA suggests it breaks through the typical stereotypes with the interior design following this rule.

This house has been created. It tries to be understood primarily as a complex spatial structure and as a cultural fusion building, as a labyrinth of light, as a new, fresh wind that brushes gently over this place.

Sheet Lightning in the Technical University’s Main Building.
The Baupiloten construct a new cafeteria full of mood- and weather-dependent lighting.
The Baupiloten have constructed a new cafeteria within the framework of a new master plan for the remodeling of the TU Berlin’s main building. The cafeteria connects two courtyards located within the listed 19th century building and provides them with a new function. The cafeteria’s distinctive luminous ceiling is already visible from the university’s foyer and through the windows of the inner courtyards.
