DU Office Flachgasse – Apartments

The former factory of metal objects Grünwald, built in 1907, was first transformed into a designer furniture store by Matthäus Jiszda in 1981. The building was once again restructured to house the offices of the Viennese branch of Dietrich | Untertrifaller. It has also been enhanced by two floors to offer a penthouse and two spacious apartments. Bruno Klomfar Bruno Klomfar The alignment recess is due to the load distribution of the cross-laminated beam-to-wall structure. The plan of the apartments adapts to these structural constraints and takes advantage of them: the supports on the central supporting wall and on the existing dividing walls allow clearing free levels as well as large windows on all the west facade of t...

OMA thinktank AMO realizes Off-White store in Paris with a feast of textures

One week of life

The life of a flower is short. This project expresses the fragility of a concentrated life from flowering to dispersal. We temporarily redesign the courtyard of the Hôtel de Mirman, a private residence built around the 13th century now transformed into apartments, and designated as a historic building. It is located on the Marché aux Fleurs square, the flower market square. In a narrow courtyard that frames the sky in the distance, eighteen lightweight units made of 2mm thick aluminum sheets are laid out together, as a forest. The tube is a vase that contains water and peony flowers, the bowl contains water and slate stones.  The weight of the water and the slate stones situates the center of gravity in the bowl, at the...

Courtyard House at Wani

Wani is located in the northern part of Otsu City, which is between Lake Biwa and Hira Mountains. It is a suburban residential area where people live leisurely, with the JR Kosei Line running north and south, giving good access to Kyoto and Osaka. We designed a small house on a hill in Wani. The owner is a dog lover who likes outdoor activities and whose hobby is swimming with his dogs in Lake Biwa on the weekends. The owner's request was to live with his pets and fully enjoy the scenery and atmosphere unique to Wani. We chose a one-story building with a courtyard so that he could stay outdoors while preserving privacy from the surrounding houses. However, even if it is a courtyard style, the view to Lake Biwa will be lost if it is surroun... Más

Shimigiah Residential Apartment (Double Side)

“Double Side”-Shimigiah Residential Apartment was a building with no residents for years. At first, the new owner had decided to make some minor alterations in terms of improving the building’s elevations; but under the discussion between our team and the client, we could convince him to renovate all the interior and outdoor spaces.  The northern and southern access to the apartment was completely different. Considering the variety of effective factors on the elevations and also the inconsistency of two facades, each side is determined to have a unique but consistent design Regardless of all differences, some specific elements, materials and a unique color were shared on both sides, in order to provide single charac...

legero united campus

The legero united campus near Graz consists of two differently sized rings. Generous glazing, the facade of bronze-coloured anodised aluminium that changes in sunlight and the lushly planted inner courtyards blur the boundaries between inside and outside. The larger office ring can be topped up by an additional floor at any time. This meets the customer’s desire for a ‘growing’ corporate headquarter that can be extended in stages without producing a temporary measure. The result is a campus, a place with identity and great charisma, a dynamic and yet harmonious composition, at any time and in all stages of construction. The innovative campus translates the corporate philosophy of development and community into an overall a... Más
