Residential Building with 15 Units in Dommeldange, Luxembourg by Metaform architects

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

Article source: v2com

When it comes to housing, one of the main problems people are facing in most urban areas today – often places of constant growth and raising housing demands – is a need to choose an apartment typology over single-family houses not because of their desire, but out of necessity. Their main concerns can be summed up as following:

Boos Beach Club Restaurant in Bridel, Luxembourg by Metaform architects

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Article source: v2com

In place of the old bar/restaurant BOOS Beach Club, modern and contemporary architecture, tightly linked to its context, reflects the new image of this iconic venue in Luxembourg. The new structure, interwoven around the existing house, is inspired by the Japanese art of origami. It resembles a folded sheet of paper that answers to the program requirements, while creating a relation with the old and opening up to the natural surroundings. The idea was to integrate harmoniously the new structure into the existing natural context, while at the same time paying respect to the existing architecture by placing a light wooden structure with glass openings towards the landscape. The dynamic design enables orienting the bar and eating areas towards the outside, guiding the views to the tall tree stalks. By leaning on the existing house, and due to its triangular form, the self-supporting rigid roof requires very few peripheral structural points. The motivation to choose this lightweight and easily removable roof system leaves space and possibility to the idea of possible future change, if needed.

Article source: baumschlager eberle

The Maison du Savoir is both an icon of the future and a reminder of the past. Conceived and constructed by baumschlager eberle in cooperation with Christian Bauer & Associés Architectes as the focal point of the new University of Luxembourg campus, the building is a striking and highly visible landmark. What was once the site of a steel plant in the Belval district of Esch-sur Alzette is now the centrepiece of the new Cité des Sciences.

Housing building with 7 units in Rue Des Maraîchers, Luxembourg by METAFORM Architecture

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

Article source: METAFORM Architecture

A discreet and reduced architecture with hidden openings based on a compact and pure volume. One of the main intentions of the project consists in the insertion of a residential building with 7 living units in its direct surroundings, marked by detached and solitary buildings in an suburban context. The use of a single light coloured material (fibre-cement panels) for the façade gives the building a monolithic aspect and preserves the quiet appearance. The composition of the different volumes merged to the continuous grid of the façade blurs the clear differentiation of the stacked floors, indeed often characteristic for an multi-storey housing project.

Lili’s Garden in Dommeldange, Luxembourg by EGB Hornung & Associés

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

Article source: EGB Hornung & Associés

Lili’s Garden was born from the renovation of an old farmhouse built to the end of 18th century in the picturesque area of Dommeldange. There are now eight apartments and two studios that took place there. Our desire was to preserve part of the identity of the building by improving the quality of life of its residents.

Apartment Building in Cessange, Luxembourg by Metaform atelier d’architecture

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Article source: Metaform atelier d’architecture

There are numerous problems involved in integrating art into architecture in the developmental stages when the architecture is limited by several constraints, including profitability and investments. The juxtaposition of the spaces and the articulation of different surface areas must meet the very precise requirements of both the building authorities and of the client, and the situation is rendered even more challenging when the building site is narrow.

LUX – Landscape design in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg by AllesWirdGut Architektur ZT GmbH

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: AllesWirdGut Architektur ZT GmbH

Between forward-facing high-rise buildings and blast furnaces of the past the new Steelyard square forms the center of Belval Ouest, a city development project which is currently constructed in Luxembourg on the grounds of a former steel mill. The disused industrial site´s atmosphere was characterized by wideness and roughness as well as pioneer plants such as mosses and birch. The former situation is necessarily literally covered by the new use and new design. Our major goal was it to let the now hidden qualities shine through the redesign.

Marxen House in Machtum, Luxembourg by Hermann & Valentiny and Partners

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

Article source: Hermann & Valentiny and Partners

This house, too, lies in the vineyard with a wonderful view of the Moselle. It is in part a masonry building with a visibly screwed oak façade; in part it has a load-bearing timber and glass façade. The building encloses an internal courtyard on three sides and is oriented to the northeast, towards the Moselle. There, too, a large pool of water was positioned, which can also be used as a swimming pool. A footbridge leads across this pool to the entrance to the house.

Les Thermes in Strassen, Luxembourg

Friday, May 4th, 2012

Article source: HVP

A large communal leisure amenity set in the landscape but yet easily reachable in terms of transportation. The building is elliptical in plan, the volume is (to quote the architects) a “flying saucer”. Deliveries are made underground; at ground floor level there is a large entrance hall that functions as a distributor and is connected to the swimming area by floor-toceiling glazing. From the hall one makes one’s way to the changing rooms, swimming zones, sauna area as well as to the lift leading to the upper floor. There are three different swimming areas, each separated by broad relaxation zones with rich planting and separate access to the outside.
