„Best of Best“ Automotive Brand Contest 2018

“Best of Best”: The dynamic space concept of the new Audi canteen in Building H6 of the Ingolstadt factory is the winner of the Automotive Brand Contest 2018 in the category “Architecture & Events”. The award ceremony took place on 2.10. 2018 on the occasion of the “Mondial de l'Automobile” in Paris.   On the former Brunnquell site south of the Audi factory, a modern building complex was completed at the end of 2017. About 2,500 of the car manufacturer’s employees work here. Together with a work lounge, the canteen is the heart of the new site. At the centre of the design for the two-storey project are dynamic forms. Borrowed from the soft, flowing lines of the silhouette of a car, a series of striking room elements has been created, dividing the large space into different quality areas and giving orientation. The Automotive Brand Contest is an international design competition for automotive brands and has developed within the shortest time to become one of the world’s most important industry competitions. With this competition, the German Design Council awards prizes for outstanding product and communication design and draws attention to the significance of brand design in the automotive sector. The focus is on the holistic and consistent presentation of the brand beyond all media and products.

Project presentation: housing development Rupprechtstrasse / Gabrielenstrasse in Munich

The clear form of this new housing development is a response to the diversity of the architecture and buildings in the vicinity. The perimeter block development is completely closed off by the L-shaped front building, while the inner courtyard is complemented by a garden building. The front building with its five storeys matches in height and width the existing buildings in the district and, with its gallery storey, which reaches into the inner courtyard as a penthouse storey, provides generously-sized free areas for the flats. The four-storeyed rear building takes up the planned new building on the west side and the existing two-storeyed building to the east. The garden building has a positive effect on the arrangement of the adjacent stock. The depth of the building is also oriented on the existing material in the area. The positioning of the front and garden buildings creates an attractive courtyard situation, which can be used optimally for private shares of the garden.   The closed L-shaped perimeter block development follows the parcelling of the adjacent development typical for the area and is divided into three buildings – the Gabrielenstrasse block, the corner block and the Rupprechtstrasse block. This division is reflected both in the layouts and in the side-views and conveys a true-to-scale treatment of the size of the new development, which is not typical for the area. The three street façades are clearly divided into a base storey, three normal storeys and an attic storey. We consider a classical punctuated façade appropriate to this area, with its correct use of materials and differentiated design using light, mineral plaster and generous window openings. The individual buildings are distinguished by their different colours, the elaboration of their guardrails, and the accentuation by plaster frames. In contrast to the existing buildings, the corner of the building at Rupprechtstrasse/Gabrielenstrasse plays a decisive role in the urban landscape in the sense of classical urban construction. Through its typical corner elevation, as found in classical housing development, the intersection fulfils its role in the cityscape, in contrast to the existing development. An additional structuring of the façade lengths is provided by superelevated shield walls, a motif common in the buildings of the area. In the rear building, modern design elements are used both for more openness and for more privacy. The horizontal accentuation of the storeys by a protruding band creates a modern façade image. Through the use of similar colours and materials, the front building and the garden building create a shared image, while emphasising the diversity and development in the district. Area: Gross floor space above ground: ca. 10,200 sq. m. ca. 96 residential units 244 parking spaces Date of completion:2021[more]


Project presentation: House by the Lake

The new, modern house is being built on the edge of a small settlement on a steep slope with a view across the lake towards the Bavarian Alpen panorama. Two two-storey residential units with a common garden pool open up via generously-sized openings to the surrounding landscape on all sides of the building.   Area: 720 sq. m.     Date of completion : 2021[more]

Project presentation: Renovation and reconstruction of the listed office building of the Munich notary account

By 2020, the listed office building of the Munich notary account will be renovated and brought up to the current state of the art. In addition to these renovations, the interior will also be reconstructed to form a new working environment, an office structure adapted to today’s needs and requirements. The representative commercial and office building in Ottostrasse in Munich has been the property of the Bavarian notary account ever since the construction of the six- to seven-storey building complex in 1951 by the architect Emil Freymuth. The block, situated in an important urban corner location, is characterised by prominent balconies and a flat roof, which protrudes on slender supports. As an office building of the first post-war modernist era, characterised by the grid-like façade, the particular value of the building can be attributed to the natural stone façade of limestone from Marching (a town in Lower Bavaria) and the relief of the artist Louis Robert Lippl over the main entrance, despite material shortages and a reduction of funding. The challenge will be to preserve the key elements and create a contemporary reinterpretation of the office spaces for the benefit of contemporary workplace concepts.   Customer: Notarkasse München (Munich notary account, a public agency) Usable area ca. 3100 sq. m. Date of completion: 2020[more]
