Haus S in Bolzano, Italy by bergmeisterwolf architekten

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Article source: bergmeisterwolf architekten 

five vacation apartments, connected by the base (garage), are twisted around a shared courtyard. house s aims to be one with the site, the landscape, and the village. following the houses of the neighborhood, the traditional materials of stone and wood are used: natural stone for the base and quartered logs for the façade. the house, placed on an incline, follows local topography only breaking at edges in the terrain. the house outgrows and yet grows into the landscape at the same time – a twist. the house’s position along a street results in a sort of yard in the back part with a vista towards a clearing – a natural recreation area. the upper part of the building, made of wood, lies on the stone base. its height and movement complies with the surrounding rooftops. however, it allows for free vistas between the rooftops of the neighboring houses, revealing wide-open views of the landscape. the result is a sort of movement, a dynamic that includes the neighboring houses without them being the main focus.

We recycle ideas, architectural concepts, structures, buildings, materials. We experiment with hybrids that step out from what exists and are transformed through new programs. How do you transform the former paper factory in Marzabotto into a place for culture, development and innovation? How do you recycle this old industrial plant into new life and uses?

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Article source: bergmeisterwolf architekten

A stone wall is the stage backdrop for the new fire department in margreid, along the wine road. three large caverns in a mountain, connected by a crossing tunnel, serve as the inner rooms of the station. two caverns are used for trucks and one for administrative work. a meter from the mountain, a concrete wall, kinked and dyed black, mirrors the angle of the mountain wall. the three caverns dock on to the steel concrete wall that functions both as fall protection and as an architectural element of the fire department. the material chosen was concrete: stable, strong, and mighty; the dark color was achieved by adding beech coal dust, making the concrete look like burnt wood.

Rooftops – Twin House H in Bozen, Italy by bergmeisterwolf architekten

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Article source: bergmeisterwolf architekten

The gabled roof, the rooftop and the roofing of the windows were the central topics of the design. the natural and architectural surroundings were the inspiration for the rooftop. the mountain tops – the backdrop of the house – and the traditional farmsteads that characterize the area are abstractly cited and interpreted in a new way in the architecture. a parallel floor plan allowed for two houses under one roof. the two different apartments, planned for two sisters, are designed to let nature and the surroundings in. all of the windows were placed according to the views they offer, and the gardens are mirrored in the loggia on the ground floor as well as on the rooftop terrace, nestled between the rooftops. any open spaces are protected from the strong winds distinctive for this area. the loggias are located deep in the buildings, and the rooftop terrace is protected by an elongated piece of façade. the building interacts with its surroundings; the old stone wall is incorporated in the design. the two materials – cinderblock and brownish-black wooden slats – interact, illustrating the duality found on the inside.

Mozia Museum in Sicily, Italy by Arnaboldi & Partners

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

Article source: Arnaboldi & Partners

Since the end of the 18th century, when the Greek colonization of Sicily forced the Phoenicians to retreat to Motya, Soluntum, and Palermo, the ancient Phoenician city of Motya lies on the San Pantaleo Island, in the lagoon of Marsala in Sicily.

In 397 B.C., Dionysus of Syracuse knocked Motya down after a long siege and the survivors found a shelter on the mainland, establishing the Punic city of Lilibeo. This settlement, today known as the city of Marsala, quickly gained in importance and overshadowed the ancient city of Motya, which the Carthaginians will conquer back soon after. The archeological excavations in Motya brought back an astonishing male sculpture, considered an original Greek artwork of the 5th century B.C., and the urban design of the settlement, of the city walls, and of numerous buildings. Above all, the most significant archeological discovery is the unveiling of a unique Phoenix-Punic warship, sunk at a battle during the First Punic War between the Romans and the Carthaginians in 241 B.C.
