December 2020 - Tübingen Biotechnology Centre Extension

In December the planning application for the extension of the Biotechnology Centre in the Technology Park Tübingen was submitted. The project is composed of a slender, skeletal bar building with external, round infrastructure cores, that are both internally connecting and compositionally separating the existing and proposed structures and through its language create a formal dialogue with the adjacent observatory. The new extension constructed of stacked, flexible platforms expresses a clear entrance gesture by a double height foyer at the front end of the building and purposely places a café on ground floor activating the new square in front of the observatory.

February 2021 – Completion GARP Education Centre

The new education building for ‘GARP Bildungszentrum’ - an Education Centre for metal-working professions - is nearing completion. The single storey solitaire is cautiously embedded in its beautiful natural context at the periphery of Nürtingen. The delicately folded, rhythmically composed facade made from perforated metal offers insights and visual connections - an architectural principle that inside the building is connecting spaces to one another and to landscape. We are excited to see the new building occupied and experienced by trainers and apprentices soon.

December 2020 - Complementary city block

Located on a derelict site at the northeastern city entrance, the new administrative office for the local district of Reutlingen is conceived as a representative urban building marking its prominent urban location and regenerating a neglected part of the city. Two interlocking building volumes with one courtyard each follow the street edges and are deliberately staggered in height in order to break the scale of a large mass and to integrate into the existing urban context. The volumetric concept and a delicate brick facade enveloping the entire volume create a building with public character and civic presence.
