Architekt Andreas Gruber as Architects

Architect Andreas Gruber is committed to an individual architecture with special quality requirements and recognition value. Quality taking into account sustainable, socio-economic interests is the highest premise, both in object planning and in the planning of new settlement landscapes and public space. Respectful and extremely careful is his handling of the natural landscape. He loves special challenges.


Core areas.

Architect Andreas Gruber is in addition to the object planning and expert for urban planning, implementation planning, development guidelines for communities and ensemble protection. He leads seminars and works as a jury expert in architectural competitions for object planning and settlement planning.


His areas of focus in property planning include residential buildings, hotel buildings, agricultural or commercial operations, new buildings, conversions or renovations. For him, quality means innovative, state-of-the-art building culture that has its roots in tradition. A focal point concerns hotel construction.


Ideal principles

In his designs for commercial buildings or implementation planning, Gruber is inspired by the characteristics and history of the location and the surrounding area. His buildings are anchored in the culture of the place and the country. They are supported by respect for the South Tyrolean landscape and cultural awareness. Architecture is for him identity and history. According to Gruber, the identity, character and history of the client must be reflected in the built object. In this sense, he develops for each client a very individual, tailored to this, so to speak, "tailor-made" architecture. Gruber's buildings are not series products, but tailor-made, they should be builder-related works of art or jewels.

 

Graber farm in Aicha (South Tyrol)

Buildings on historic model moved to village street. Building forms the entrance to the village. Ideal solutions are often found beyond classical normative rationalism. The position works as a matter of course. Grown structures as a model. By a slight twist, the courtyard, which had not existed before, is defined in dialogue with the old building. Buildings and landscape - part of a whole.


An existing old barn wall was incorporated into the concept. Connection of old new - tradition and modernity. Historic wall forms immediate conclusion to the village street.


The building form is oriented towards inner life. Compact bedrooms in the northern area - living and kitchen in the southern area. Rejuvenation of the building body to the west to give the building more south and the valley-side facade a proportion. Terrace incision in the living area- view of the countryside.


In the basement agricultural storage and processing rooms. Simple and functional unlocked. Right in the fields. Right in the courtyard.


Gates with heavy untreated larch wood planks.


Continuity of traditional construction and local building materials.


The Brixen granite is a stone with high iron content which characterizes the landscape in the Eisacktal with its vineyard walls. Use of excavation material a natural consequence of merging the building with the landscape. Excavation material also for exterior design and as concrete aggregate. Reinforced concrete structures roughened to make grains visible.


Rethought plaster and structure. Re-interpret and process commercially available materials. Spread the plaster. Irregular and lively. Handwriting of architect and hand-craft. Through teamwork innovation.


Floor designed

Trassboden developed, which is derived from the nature of historic Bauernhausbö-the. The floor has structure and is as soft as a sandstone. He is warm and greasy, he already counts a story. The traces of processing, the grinding, smoothing and spitting. Architect Andreas Gruber has redefined the floor by means of a historical recipe for cathedral buildings.


Ceilings in reinforced concrete with shell-rough surface. Interior walls in handy lime plaster. Minerali raw materials with solid wood furniture in oak a homely mood and atmosphere.


Tailored architecture for Sandra and Thomas Neumair.
