Gupa - Gurten Pavilion. Wabern, Switzerland

The Gurten Pavilion is a festive and functional venue available throughout the year for large public events.

The building , the winning entry of a design competition, captures this motif with its exceptional transparency and its unique, uninterrupted magnificent view. The hall – glazed on all sides – is perched on a projecting steel platform...

Park Tower. Antwerpen

The Park Tower, a project by Studio Farris Architects and ELD partnership, is situated in a unique location within walking distance from the new MAS museum, the harbor district ‘Eilandje’, the waterfront beside the river Scheldt and the historic city center. The project is integrated into the strategic development project that is aimed to transform the northern quarters of the city and will play a connecting role between parts of the city that have been remodeled earlier. With a total height of 78 meters, the Park Tower is now one of the highest buildings in Antwerp. The strikingly bright white exterior turns the tower into an attention-grabbing beacon that stands out as a landmark for the entire district...

Sparrenburg Visitor Centre. Bielefeld, Germany

Architect Max Dudler has designed a new Visitor centre for the medieval Sparrenburg fortress in Bielefeld. The new building was opened on 17 september 2014 after a one-year planning and construction period. An info point for the nearby Johannisberg garden and park will follow at the end of the year, also based on plans by Max Dudler who won the 2013 competition for the realisation of both projects. The visitor centre has created a new spatial frame for the historical Bailey. The material and expression represent a contemporary update of fortress architecture...

Hostal Ritoque. Región de Valparaíso, Chile

In our society we customarily perceive architecture as a luxury, understanding luxury as something valuable and at the same time scarce. We agree with the first component of the definition, but with respect to the second point, we as architects have probably not been persistent enough to build a better quality environment, nor inside or outside the Centres...

House Kaltschmieden. Doren, Austria

The old farming house in Doren Kaltschmieden has been disrupted through several insensitive alterations throughout the years and has suffered a lot through this. The very bad building fabric – in the foundations as well as in the timber construction contributed to this. This is how the new building goes into dialog with the present topography and the village structure. A soul mate body even? Nevertheless the main aim of the design was a building to interweave the soul of the old house with the place...

House of Respect and Happiness. Gapyeong, Gyeongki-do, South Korea

The owners of this house asked us to name the house as ‘House of Respect and Happiness’. It was just full one year since they were married. Though they weren’t 20s, they were very strong and fresh, just as cornlian cherry quaking by chilly spring wind. They met at a seminar, got married, and the husband chose the subject of his life as respect, while the wife chose as happiness. They wanted to make a space in their house to carry out exchange and educate...
