Gamseia cocktailbar rethought in Munich, Germany by Buero Wagner

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Article source: Buero Wagner 

When owner and head bartender Matthew Bax opened Gamsei 2013 in Munich’s trendy neighbourhood Glockenbach, he introduced hyper-localism to a field of practice which had till then been mainly confined to the food scene. At Gamsei, ingredients for cocktails like Lavender Drunk Bee and Frühlingserwachen, are either wildly foraged by Bax and his team or grown by local artesian farmers, thus reestablishing a connection with local products, region and culture and offering something that is unique in its kind.Bax, an Australian artist and founder of three bars, envisioned his fourth as an antidote to the globalization of cocktail bars; why drink the very same cocktail in every bar you go to in the world? Why not experience the excitement of the new when sipping a cocktail?

BMW Welt in Munich, Germany by Coop Himmelb(l)au

CONCEPTION

The realization of the technical building facilities within the scope of the architecture led to a planning model with five thematic blocks: Hall, Premiere, Forum, Gastronomy and Double Cone.

Hall

A low-tech concept optimized ecologically using high-tech methods

The technical solution here is based on previous experience with large halls. All of the necessary features were realized successfully according to a low-tech concept. The interrelations of daylight and artificial light with ambient climate and acoustics influence people’s feeling of well-being in the Hall. The concept for the technological building systems takes up these relationships and integrates them in an interdependent manner, adapting their range of influence by modifying their dimensions or building in appropriate control mechanisms. A major goal in designing the systems was to save energy.

Eurostars Book Hotel in Munich, Germany by Rieder Smart Elements GmbH

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Article source: Rieder Smart Elements GmbH

The fibreC glassfibre reinforced concrete facade of the Eurostars Book Hotel in Munich is part of a marvellous design idea. The architecture of the building tells its very own story of books as cultural objects. Every floor reflects a literary genre, whereas rooms and corridors are dedicated to famous works. Rieder’s ingeniously formed facade elements represent the turning pages of books, whilst also providing protection from direct solar exposure. A specially developed process allows for manufacturing glassfibre reinforced concrete as round moulds, making individual facades, like the book pages of the Eurostars Book Hotel, possible.

Fair Stand For Armstrong at BAU 2013 in Munich, Germany by Ippolito Fleitz Group

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

Article source: Ippolito Fleitz Group

Munich’s ‘Bau’ trade fair is one of the world’s leading trade fairs for the construction industry. Its particular focus is on building materials. For the ‘Bau 2013’, Armstrong DLW is highlighting its product palette of linoleum and vinyl flooring. The idea is to pursue the twin goals of presenting its new collections and sensitising a younger and inherently more experimental target group of architects to the appeal of these materials. The stand exhibits both the Linea collection, featuring a wide spectrum of wood grain effects, and the Colorette product line, which is distinguished by strong, rich colours.
