Westgarten 02 in Frankfurt, Germany by STEFAN FORSTER ARCHITEKTEN

Saturday, July 2nd, 2016

Article source: STEFAN FORSTER ARCHITEKTEN

Westgarten 02, a residential block of high-end rental apartments, was built on the last remaining gap in development in Frankfurt´s Westhafen district. In terms of its language of forms, the design was guided by its immediate neighbour, “Westgarten 01”, a mixed residential and retail block. Light-coloured clinker cladding emphasises the ground floor zone, optically dividing private from public space. Continuous cornices and projecting render detail on the parapets emphasise the horizontal articulation of the façade. Contrasting with its adjacent building, Westgarten 02 features light-grey render and a symmetrical façade design with a receding central zone. A sculptural note is added by the two-storey penthouse floor with large roof terraces. The internal arrangement of the apartments – three apartments per floor, accessed via stairwells at either end of the building – is legible in the design of the façade. Each apartment has a loggia overlooking the street and a balcony facing the inner courtyard. In total 39 apartments were created here.

An der Achalm in Reutlingen, Germany by Alexander Brenner Architekten

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: Alexander Brenner Architekten

The location on a steep south-facing slope required an access to the house from the public road running below to the site situated about 12 metres higher. These conditions inspired the idea of embedding a mountain pass road into the site, which serves both as a drive and a footpath.

Objective and purpose

The most state-of-the-art natural gas power plant in the world has recently been completed on Lausward in Düsseldorf’s harbour. It has been supplying the city with climate-friendly electricity and district heat since the beginning of 2016, and is therefore making a considerable contribution towards a more secure energy supply within the city and region. The new natural gas power plant is an important milestone on the way to a carbon-neutral city, which the state capital is striving to achieve by 2050.

NAXOS BUILDING in Frankfurt, Germany by STEFAN FORSTER ARCHITEKTEN

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Article source: STEFAN FORSTER ARCHITEKTEN

In the middle of Frankfurt´s Nordend district, this new residential block was built to passive house standards on the site of a former Naxos-Union factory. Retaining and integrating the distinctive trees along Wingertstrasse was an important part of the design considerations: the comb-like structure of the complex on this side, with its broad area of green in front of the apartments, is a direct response to this situation. The private gardens of the ground-floor apartments are located in the five courtyards. The back of the complex is oriented towards the listed Naxoshalle, the last remaining relic from the site´s former industrial use. On the corner of Wingertstrasse and Wittelsbacherallee the block is finished off conventionally with a corner tower. The continuous clinker cladding on the ground floor strengthens the ensemble character and is also a reference to its urban context. All the dual-aspect apartments have large loggias to the front and to the rear. In total 69 freehold and 47 rental apartments were built here to the passive house standard.

D10 is a single-storey one-family home built in an established residential area. A private driveway provides access to the house. Two parallel shear walls are a distinguishing feature of the building. Generously designed glazing serves to provide a spatial enclosure. Protected by an extensively projecting flat roof a generously sized patio encircling the house serves to unite the indoor space with the outdoor space. Access to the building is also gained via this patio.

Haus im Allgäu in Germany by studioeuropa

Friday, June 17th, 2016

Article source: studioeuropa

An extremely narrow, long site amidst the farmhouses of an old bavarian village: a challenge to organize a barrierfree, compact, and energy efficient house, that blends well into its rural neighbourhood. Despite the site‘s small size and difficult proportions, a peaceful house stretching far into the garden was created.

Holistic Living in Wannsee, Germany by GRAFT

Friday, June 10th, 2016

Article source: GRAFT 

GRAFT designed a single-family house and two semi-detached houses, all of them environment-friendly buildings that join mobility, energy and health. The project is an unrivaled holistic approach that connects modern architecture, innovative building equipment and e-mobility as well as sustainability and physical health. The houses even generate a surplus of energy that will be used to charge an e-car that the tenant rents with the house.
