BSU Hamburg in Germany by Sauerbruch Hutton architects

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Article source: NBK Keramik GmbH

The second largest city in Germany is often referred to as the “gateway to the world”. The Free and Hanseatic City has the largest and most important commercial port in the country and acts as a transport hub for ships from all over the world. Important sea routes to the North and East open out from Hamburg, and major import and export companies, forwarding and shipping companies are based here.

The city on the river Elbe with its green areas and bodies of water, its architecturally impressive cityscape and its Hanseatic flair is also one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. A lively art and cultural scene, shopping and entertainment districts and not least the lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere explain its appeal. And Hamburg is growing – for years its population has been on the rise, and the forecasts suggest a further increase, which needs to be reflected in the city’s building and transport infrastructure.

Platanenkubus Nagold in Germany by Ludwig.Schoenle

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

Article source: Ludwig.Schoenle

The Plane-Tree-Cube was designed as a contribution for the Regional Horticultural Show in Nagold in 2012. It was conceptualized as a long-term Baubotanik experiment within an urban context. By the help of “Plan Addition” techniques, a green cube with an edge length of 10 meters was created that, right from the beginning, had the dimension of a full-grown tree. Initially, young plane trees are arranged in plant containers on six levels. They form green walls around a space open to the sky.

Jil Sander New Store in Berlin, Germany by Studio Andrea Tognon Architecture

Friday, December 23rd, 2016

Article source: Studio Andrea Tognon Architecture

As if to honour its German roots, high-end fashion brand Jil Sander introduced it’s new retail design at the flagship store on the swanky Kurfürstendamm thoroughfare in Berlin. Occupying a ground floor unit of a landmark structure built in 1900 with an ornate art nouveau façade, the new aesthetic, created by Milan-based practice Andrea Tognan Architecture, is almost defiantly modern and understated, and clearly extrapolates Jil Sander‘s clean designs. Geometrical forms of the square and the rectangle largely define the premises, along with more fluent shapes that convey a zen-like sense of spatial harmony, and yet provide functionality at the same time.

Cinnamon Tower in Hamburg, Germany by BOLLES+WILSON GmbH & Co. KG

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: BOLLES+WILSON GmbH & Co. KG

The Cinnamon tower was conceived as freestanding campanile – a pin on a piazza was the concept behind the premiated competition design by BOLLES+WILSON for the existing 19th century Harbour Masters Building.

A tower was not anticipated in the competition programme, but the jury agreed that a tower anchors the public functions around the only remaining historical building to survive between the megablocks of the ‘Overseas Quarter’ master plan. The historic building would thus be more autonomous.

Folkwang Library in Essen-Werden, Germany by Max Dudler Architekt

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

Article source: Max Dudler Architekt

Folkwang University of the Arts is North Rhine Westphalia’s college of art and music. Its main campus is housed in the former Benedictine abbey of St. Ludgerus in Essen-Werden, situated in the southern Ruhr Valley. The small 8th century site was extended into a princely baroque residence in the 18th century, arranged around a magnificent courtyard (Cour d’honneur). The construction of the new library on the south side of the courtyard by the architect Max Dudler replaces a 19th century military hospital building demolished in 1969. In 2006 Max Dudler won the design competition organised by the Duisburg branch of the Building and Real Estate Management Authority, North Rhine Westphalia. The project was generously supported by the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach Foundation.

Primo Cafe Bar Tübingen in Germany by DITTEL ARCHITEKTEN GMBH

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: DITTEL ARCHITEKTEN GMBH

The Primo Cafe Bar stands for high-quality coffee, an Italian lifestyle and a sustainable mind-set. In the spirit of this brand philosophy, an authentic interior design concept with natural materials and dedication to detail was created. The café was realized at the Zinser fashion store in Tübingen. Located in the pedestrian zone, it not only attracts people from the outside but also creates value for the store’s retail customers. The continuous glass façade reveals a warm atmosphere to passers-by which – in a symbiosis of light and material – makes them want to enjoy a coffee.
