Kulturbahnhof Aalen merges industrial history with 21st century architecture

The Kulturbahnhof Aalen brings together the city’s industrial history with 21st architecture by sensitively integrating historical building fragments with modern elements. The resulting civic hub now accommodates a cinema, theatre, and music school along with high-quality event halls. Brigida González The Kulturbahnhof is located in an area once known as the Aalen ‘Stadoval,’ which alongside other uses was a railway track area.  After a fire caused significant damage in 2014, only fragments of some historical groups of buildings and their beautiful sandstone facades remained. For a+r Architekten, the guiding principle of the project was to carefully preserve the remaining heritage while developing a cultu... Mehr

Zapiola House

ZAPIOLA HOUSE is a project located in Buenos Aires that begins with the request to build a new floor above an existing house and the consequent reorganazation of the rooms in the original building. The ground floor is freed from the existing walls in order to create a single open space where the kitchen, the dining and the living room are, facing the inner patio. The upper floor locates the bedrooms and, above them, a large rooftop is designed.   The challenge in this Project was how to assemble the original building and the new expansion. The premise was not to replicate the existing construction but to find a new language that brings both parts to balance. In this search , the original bricks from the facade and the patio were rest... Mehr

M Garden Duplex

Dieser Duplex befindet sich in den 2 ersten Stockwerken eines Gebäudes aus den 70er Jahren und wurde nie renoviert. Es verfügt über einen privaten Garten von 1000 qm, was innerhalb von Paris eine Seltenheit ist. Die Renovierung war vollständig, von den Stockwerken bis zu den Treppen, Fenstern usw. Die Idee war, den Grundriss vollständig umzugestalten, um den Bedürfnissen einer Familie mit 3 kleinen Kindern gerecht zu werden, aber auch um die Belüftung und Isolierung zu verbessern, um den Komfort im Sommer und im Winter zu gewährleisten. Um ein Maximum an natürlichem Tageslicht zu erhalten und trotzdem vor der hohen sommerlichen Hitze geschützt zu sein - was in Paris zum heutigen Standard g... Mehr

Italo Social Eatery

Italo Social Eatery is a restaurant and lounge by Funkadeli group in Shanghai. The aim was to create a higher level concept without losing the “funky Italian” spirit of their of the other group venues. As a multipurpose concept, it had to accommodate guests for lunch/brunch and morph into a dining/aperitivo/cocktail venue that goes till late at night. We took inspiration from the mid-century Milan and Rome. Those were the Italian golden years, with its innovative and optimistic design, Cinnecitta’s movie stars glamour and hedonistic spirit …  We wanted to take this ambiance  as starting point and reformulate it in a contemporary way. The Italo experience starts at the cinematographic staircase, wrapped b... Mehr

"History meets future", declares the fitting motto chosen for the project Five, located in Prague 5 – Smíchov. A tram depot building occupied the project site, but that could have been called a relic even when it was built. While forming an important endpoint in the city transport system, complicated access had been its disadvantage right from the beginning. The depot building still looked almost exactly like when it was closed, years later when current renovations began. Previously it had proved too difficult to adapt for a new use, so it remained in a sort of permanent provisional state. It became impossible to keep the original curious technical program. The necessary connection to the city’s tram network was lost and... Mehr

International School Tumo

Idea We were faced with a difficult but interesting task from the head creators of the TUMO school - to create an architectural design of a building based on an iPhone. Minimalistic, technological and recognizable. Modern product design, mostly dictated by the development of technology, ergonomics and marketing is hardly imaginable in fundamental art and large shapes, but we tried the best to transform the principle and approach of design into architecture. The idea formed the basis of the whole project process: from the creation of furniture and interiors, as well as the elements of the facade and the choice of materials. We excluded any non-functional and unnecessary elements, had deliberately sought to contrast with the environment and... Mehr

Rabbit Hole Distillery

For this unique facility -- a modern structure in an industry steeped in tradition -- the design team embraced the strategy “form follows process,” allowing the building to take shape in response to the bourbon production process it would house. The result: a distinctive, responsive building that shares its design and purpose equally with the building’s capacious copper and steel equipment.   Taking a cue from Louis Kahn’s Salt Institute, the overall form is divided into “service” (warehouse) and “served” (atrium and event space) volumes.  A public passageway navigates between the two without intruding on either before it ascends, on a meandering path, through the 60-foot-tall Manu...
