This project represents a so-called "Urban Villa", a very popular building type in Berlin during the 1990’s, otherwise often realized in a half-harted "retro-style". Comprising 5 freehold apartments, this building in a densely wooded location was conceived with a consistent modern design approach and an emblematic contemporary architecture. The evocative roof shape is formed from monocoque-shell elements and creates maximum living room volumes within the space allowed by planning regulations. The built volume is staggered in depth and fits in with the surrounding single family houses. Each of the five apartments has windows on all sides. Floor plans can be flexibly altered for the long term through the use of design features such as wide-span ceilings and non-load-bearing inner walls.

Close to the historic town centre of Lahr, a district town at the western edge of the “Black Forest”, a partially built city block is to be developed by adding an underground garage and residential buildings. The central theme of the design is the idea of the open city block.

The design is based on the scale and structure of the historic town. The new residential quarter along Goethestrasse is composed of singular cubes of varying height and length. As a result the buildings achieve an individual identity and views to the inside of the city block are made possible.

The buildings are offset from each other allowing for individual areas at the entries of the retail and residential spaces. The offsetting of the buildings also creates various types of open space with distinctive features on the inside of the city block.

The main orientation of all apartments is towards the east and the west while also having an additional orientation towards the alleyways on the south or the north side of each building. The positioning of the building cores allows for flexible apartment sizes on each floor. The interior fitout is flexible and can be adjusted to the requests of the owner.

The design of the new development is in harmony with the simple cubic architecture that shapes the townscape which is being interpreted in a modern fashion. The openings in the facade are positioned in a grid and align on top of each other however this conventional grid is changing deliberately to show the individuality of the living spaces beyond.

Especially the "Sun House" is based on a future-oriented energy concept. The electric energy supply of the building is provided by renewable energy and the energy consumption is being reduced by the use of an advanced insulation system and a monitored heat recovery system. A geothermal heating and cooling system is being installed underneath the slab providing heating during winter and cooling during summer.

An external shading system protects the interior from excessive solar radiation. The large windows towards the south provide additional solar heat gain during winter.

On an undeveloped lot of a prime real estate area close to Kurfürstendamm and Ludwigkirchplatz a building with condominiums is being developed. The building is a solitaire within its urban context of city blocks. Townhouses with a private garden are located on the ground floor and the first floor of the six-story building. On the floors above all apartments are designed as loft spaces. The size of the units ranges from 150 to 300 square meters.

The design of the facade and the building cubature reflect the various unit types. The townhouses are located as two cubes made of fairfaced concrete on both sides of the central stairwell. On top of those two cubes sits another larger cube that houses the loft-apartments. The cubes open up towards the street and the inside of the block. The elegant and dynamic interior of the building is characterized by white horizontal ceiling lines and large-scale windows. The ceiling lines and the large-scale windows protrude and step back in reverse order from the facade in an elegant manner and as a result loggias are being formed which provide the lofts with exciting spaces on the exterior.

The sleeping quarters of the units are oriented towards the courtyard and the generous living quarters with kitchen, living room and dining area are facing the street. Because of the close proximity to the neighbouring buildings the side-façades with secondary rooms have narrow window slots cut into the concrete cube.

This house for the family of a senior surgeon is benefited from the planning precedent set by two Bauhaus villas in the same street; the architecturally desired clarity of the building's volumes and its details meshed harmoniously with the intellectual and sensual world of the clients. Thus a house of unusual elegance, peacefulness and presence, and one which is well loved by its users, could be erected within a modest budget.

Precious Park is an icon for luxurious living in a well designed and natural setting. Core features to achieve this are the optimization of view to landscape, orientation towards sun to maximize daylight exposure of residential units and spacious living within nature – yet at the same time within a high density settlement.

The masterplan’s design is based on an elaborated rhythm where built spaces consequently face unbuilt spaces. This concept promotes a great generosity of space. Alternating sequences of water-bound pathways, green areas and paved areas create promenades and piazzas which invite people to spend time in its generosity of built & unbuilt spaces with a park-like atmosphere. Thereby created spaces are of dynamic character and open up to the adjacent forest.

Being a large development, the precious park project implements aspects of green measures to create a sustainable, biotope society. It creates high density and thus reduces building site within its natural setting. The integrated landscaping optimizes functional zones and connects the project to its immediate surrounding forest. The residential development is blocked off from the adjacent high traffic street by a strip of commercial buildings that articulate the entrance to the area and provide protection from noise. Precious Park is a low traffic development where traffic is only permitted in the commercial areas at the entrance. Apartments are accessed via the underground parking lot which grants that the residential areas are free of any traffic.

There are different pools inserted to the site using collected rainwater as the source. The rainwater is stored in underground tanks and later pumped to these surface pools. The pools are recreational and are visual background to the public piazzas. The water is sprayed into the air through these points and functions as natural (adiabatic) cooling for these external spaces in summer. The underground tanks also supply non-drinking water for the development. Precious Park takes advantages of its large site area and applies geothermal system for heating and cooling energy supply. Energy effective movable sunscreens on the elevation provide solar energy input in the wintertime, and shut out heat gains in the summertime.

The contemporary façade design in gold, silver and bronze anodized aluminum creates a lively image. Glazed and opaque façade panels relate to external spaces on balconies, which themselves have partly opaque and partly glazed balustrades. The colour schemes and materiality relate to established associations of preciousness.

At the end of the development a spacious centre for sport and recreation offers facilities for relaxation, activities and communication. Due to the use of natural materials within that area a link to the directly adjacent forest is built.

A residential building project is taking shape in one of the most lively residential areas of the Eastern part of the city, comprising approx. 120 apartments and underground parking. On the large site at the corner of Choriner Strasse and Zehdenicker Strasse four new buildings form a closed perimeter block, and five more buildings are being realized within the block. Within the framework of this project we are designing two residential buildings in the perimeter block on Zehdenicker Strasse as well as the whole basement, and we have taken over the design co-ordination of all the participating architects.

Although the two buildings we have designed have a strong architectural affinity, their architectures are different because they have different significance for the ensemble. “House 8” forms the entrance to the inner area of the block. This 2-storey entrance is emphasized by us by a building with a particularly significant architecture. The facade is strongly characterised by the five nests located on each floor, and the upper most of them articulating a high point which marks the entrance to the inner part of the development.

"Haus 9" alludes typologically in part to the classically inspired buildings in the surrounding area, as well as to the adjacent smooth facades in the existing old buildings. These references to the surroundings are translated into a modern architecture focused on pure, essential design elements and elegant proportions. The building comprises a complex mix of apartments. The two-storey base requested by our client frames retail units on the ground floor as well as apartments on the first floor.
