Kita Göttingen in Germany by Despang Architekten

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

Article source: Despang Architekten

The new day care center of Göttingen University is the most recent case study of several typological educational prototypes Despang Architekten has investigated in within the last years. The strategy of this project is a symbiosis of architecture and nature with a high ecological standard. The symbiosis was achieved through mainly berming the building and opening it with a passive solar “curtain wall” towards the south. Part of the goal was the development of a by the best value of the inflationary term sustainable building, which besides other performative aspects has a very low heating and cooling demand. Critical and fundamental in the design process was the maximum exposure to the south and closure to the north with optimized insulation. Access to the building is given from the east and utilizes the given infrastructure of the two adjacent buildings.

Black on White in Wenzenbach, Germany by Fabi Architekten BDA

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Article source: Fabi Architekten BDA

A house like an archetype. As a prelude to the castle “Schönberg” (12th century) at the Wehrgraben – site of a former guard house. The house consists of two building volumes – one homogeneous, black saddle roof building lying turned and cantilevered on a white flat roof box. A minimal intrusion into the hillside topography. The volumes open up targeted to the natural space, the forest. The buildings to the sorroundings shine quiet and conciseness– unambiguity.

House Hafner in Büschelhof, Germany by Hornung And Jacobi Architecture

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Article source: Hornung And Jacobi Architecture

The site of the house is located in the countryside next to a forest in Southern Germany. The house is situated at the end of a blind alley and benefits from the site facing the forest and valley. Thus a very high level of privacy is provided by the protection from being seen or unauthorized access, which makes an open living possible. The slight remodeling of the topography with a given height difference of 3 meters inspired the choreography and orientation of the building alike.

Interstice in Regensburg, Germany by Fabi Architekten BDA

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

Article source: Fabi Architekten BDA

The “Ganghofersiedlung” was built under the National Socialists as “Siedlung Göring-Heim” for the members of the “Messerschmidtwerke” into the 1930 years. The strongly rehabilitation needy settlement houses are under ensemble and protection of historical monuments. To leave the existing house still free, the architect built an transparent and structural supporting glasstransit. Just like a bridge between existing house and new bulidling.
