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...

Nonhyun Limelight Music Consulting. Seoul

The densely populated residential area on the inner side of Dosan-daero is a site in which civil complaints clash and height limits are rarely respected. The mass was folded according to the slopes of the stairs, to avoid a steeply set mass. By decreasing the mass as it ascends along the straight stairs, skylights were placed at each level. The building’s purpose is as a recording studio, which has instigated serious complaints by local residents restricted opening up the outer wall, with its closed figure naturally leading to a selection of bricks...

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...
