Stadium St. Pölten, AustriaStadium St. Pölten, Austria
The new St. Pölten Stadium is designed as a large urban shape that is unmistakably visible from far away and which is completely built as a wooden construction over the plinth. A basket-like wooden structure forms the building’s shell, filters the daylight passing through it and simultaneously offers effective protection from the wind.
A person walking into the stadium via the promenade´s raised level enters the basin, which is developed into a complete, atmospherically dense arena around the field with a continuous, homogeneous terrace.
The main stand, VIP area, administration and athletes are housed in a compact, ‘passive house’ building on the stadium´s long, south-western side, which is enclosed on three sides and only opens generously towards the south in order to receive solar heat gain. The building´s shell is designed in such a way that it is possible to extend the stands from 8,000 to 13,000 seats at any time.

Multi-Functional Hall Ulm / Neu-UlmMulti-Functional Hall Ulm / Neu-Ulm

The new multi-functional hall for Ulm and Neu Ulm has been designed as a landmark at the town´s entrance, which is visible from far away.
The hall´s rounded block stands as a special dynamic shape on a plinth growing out of the landscape with a planted embankment. The prominent, opening gesture towards the town creates an inviting situation for entry.
The entrance plateau offers the hall´s visitors both visual and acoustic protection from the neighbouring traffic on a level which is removed from the street level.
The areas for spectators with the foyer and wrap-around area are contained transparently by the surrounding glazing, in order to reinforce the references between inside and outside.

Konrad-Adenauer-Straße Stuttgart, GermanyKonrad-Adenauer-Straße Stuttgart, Germany

Konrad Adenauer Straße between Gebhardt Müller Platz and Charlottenplatz unifies a large part of the most important culturally and politically prestigious buildings in the state capital.
The cultural buildings on the eastern edge of the slope face the road space, whereas the building blocks are orientated towards the town centre on the western side with their backs to the ‘cultural mile’. The main design concept is to strengthen the eastern foot of the slope with a large, central connection to the town centre.
The number of connections via Konrad Adenauer Straße had to be limited to four crossings, which become references between the high and low banks on the other hand by means of additional steps and ramps, so that a varied urban cultural landscape is created along the foot of the slope. The area around the state parliament and opera house guides the visitor to the castle´s upper garden from the Eckensee lake via Konrad Adenauer Straße to the eastern bank.

Coface Arena MainzCoface Arena Mainz
A multi-functional stadium with a capacity of 40,000 seats was designed on two terraces for the ‘FSV Mainz 2005’ event.
The design´s features are integration of the stadium into the landscape, a dense stadium atmosphere and the crystalline shell as a symbol that can be seen from far away.
The stadium is laid out freely in the countryside on the western outskirts of Mainz: it is also very visible from the whole surrounding area. The landscape surrounding the stadium flows over the ramps to the promenade level and over the generous openings and spectators´ entrance tunnels into the stadium beyond.
The stadium´s red interior opens up successively as the visitor approaches the stadium.

Cologne operahouseCologne operahouse

With the new theatre building, a public building is being designed which is integrated into the structure as a place for events. The front part of the new building faces onto Offenbachplatz is given a special role: it was designed as a public building and contributes to enlivening the whole day through its mixture of functions.
Offenbachplatz is drawn into the building and translated vertically into large foyer spaces, galleries and terraces. The façade opens onto the square like a stage curtain and it allows the interior to become an urban stage.
The internal organization takes place via a very compact arrangement of spaces, which are sculpturally enclosed by the façade´s skin. An open flight of stairs, ramp, lifts and staircases mean that a building is created which allows all sorts of tours and cross-connections while making it visible from the outside. The building itself becomes a stage.

Cologne Central MosqueCologne Central Mosque

The Mosque as an institution is house of worship, cultural centre, public assembly hall, courthouse, school and university all in one. In Islamic countries the mosque is usually located in the bazaar and thus an integral part of urban life. Therefore the program included not only spaces for religious service but also a cultural centre with function room, multi-purpose room, café, youth club and an education centre. Commercial spaces include a library, jeweller, barbershop, travel agency, grocery store and a restaurant.
The design with its prominent entrance emphasizes the corner situation of the city plan and the busy intersection at the site. The complex consists of two buildings connected by a continuous glass roof element framing an interior courtyard and a short passageway thus creating a lively, bazaar-like, covered space. The passage becomes a vibrant urban meeting place that also bears reference to various historic examples.

Bozen Library CenterBozen Library Center
Bozen Library Center combines several library institutions for the trilingual region and a cultural center under one roof. The new library’s holdings will include about 1,100,000 volumes. It is expected to attract about 400,000 visitors per year.
The rapid development of information technology challenged the traditional concept of the library considerably. The library as an institution is supposed to be a center for different media, information, education and cultural exchange, as well as a meeting point in the city.
The design concept seeks to define the library center as a vital part of its urban context. It is an autonomous building that does not conceal its purpose but rather becomes a distinct part of public life through its inviting transparency. The building opens up towards the city and thus becomes part of it.

Ice Sports Arena and Ball Sports Hall DresdenIce Sports Arena and Ball Sports Hall Dresden
The existing ice sports hall, built in the 1960s, was severely damaged during the August 2002 flooding of the river Elbe so that a new building was required. The program called for a 3,000-seat ice hockey arena, also suitable for other sports and concert events. The adjacent secondary ice-rink is used for training and public skating.
A second construction phase includes a ball sports hall with three playing fields measuring 45m by 67m. Additionally, all service functions such as locker-rooms, equipment storage and storage sheds associated with the nearby outside sports fields are pooled and relocated to the new building.

Munich Judicial CenterMunich Judicial Center
The new Judicial Centre combines all functions of the Munich District Courts in one complex. The program includes court-rooms, offices and other administrative infrastructure as well as an employee training centre.
The proposed design seeks to create an appearance appropriate to the buildings function. Its distinct clarity sets it apart from its heterogeneous neighbours. A setback from the building line creates a suitable entrance situation for a Judicial Centre, underlining the buildings particular status.
The District Courts and their common infrastructure form the main buildings volume. The employee training centre is independently located in a second building aligned with the existing buildings. The space framed by both buildings becomes an attractive outdoor area.
The building-type of a multi-storey courtyard building is particularly suited for this inner-city location with its high volume of traffic.

LBBW Bank Stuttgart-VaihingenLBBW Bank Stuttgart-Vaihingen

The building is located on a corner with its main orientation towards a busy local shopping street. A setback highlights the corner and establishes a connection with the intersecting street and the adjacent neighborhood.
The slight pivot of the streetlevel storefront leads visitors quite naturally towards the main entrances of the bank or the tenants offices respectively. Both entrances are prominently situated on the building’s recessed corner.
The central location demands optimized office spaces that can be freely adapted to accomodate the tennants individual needs. The upper level of the bank and the tenants offices are accessed through a central staircase- and elevator core.
A setback of the top-floor responds to the scale of the surrounding buildings while maintaining an optimized use of available floor area.
