6 x 18 Slender House

The core concept driving Slender House was to punctuate the house with staggered cut-outs and strategically placed skylights. Despite the modest footprint, these design elements breathe life into the home, infusing it with light, air, and a sense of openness. The architects embraced the idea of sacrificing total floor area to create a space that resonated deeply with the client's lifestyle. Bharat Aggarwal Bharat Aggarwal Bharat Aggarwal Bharat Aggarwal At the heart of Slender House is the desire to foster connections among family members.

Proyecto • By Lorenz AteliersOficinas


Instead of a land-intensive expansion of the BORA sites in Niederndorf, LORENZATELIERS convinced our client with a compact densification of the already developed areas near the banks of the Inn. This keeps land use low and optimizes operational processes between the two existing buildings. With up to 20m long connecting bridges to the existing AT I/II buildings, the new AT III building forms a "company campus" with short distances. The lowering of the site level around the new building by means of two green "cut walls" and the preservation or replanting of the tree lined along the Innstrasse also embed the building in a park-like environment. Christian Flatscher Office space is planned for the 5 above-ground floors, which will be avai... Más

Green Park Residence

Green Park Residence is nestled next to a public park and is designed to harmonize with its peaceful natural setting.

Simultaneously, we need a sense of belonging to a cozy, peaceful, and independent place called home. The experience dose of coziness and freedom in the usual houses in Tehran is so slight that it often leads people to build settlements in more natural environments around Tehran. Parviz Seddigh Ehsan Danandeh Despite the project location on the slopes of Alborz and the Damavand mount, there is practically no view of the surrounding mountain scenery. The sky is the first and most unique natural element in the eyes of any visitor from Tehran. Therefore, the idea of drawing in and framing the sky originated. The form a... Más

It is a space that prioritizes function without sacrificing presence, one where the solid meets the fused, the vertical meets the horizontal, and the vibrant meets the elemental.
