Artisan building complex in Fitzrovia, London

Best Place to Live Fitzrovia – Although located in the heart of London, this unconventional district is the polar opposite of the neighbouring West End with its thriving business life. Fitzrovia is known for its lively art scene, and has always held a fascination for famous personalities, such as Virginia Woolf, George Bernard Shaw and Arthur Rimbaud. Even today, poets, designers, and musicians are drawn to the district's many bars, pubs, and concert venues, and it is also widely known for its traditional handicrafts. There is certainly no better place in the whole of London to combine business with pleasure, and inspiration with relaxation. In 2016 "The Sunday Times" even bestowed Fitzrovia with the honour of being London's most liveabl... Mais

The Koetshuis

Restoration and renovation in 2016 The Koetshuis has now been given a suitable purpose after a period of different uses, as it now houses the West Brabant Archive. The ground floor has been given a public function as a reading room and visitor centre for the archive service. The intermediate floor was thoroughly rebuilt and has now been furnished as office space for the archive staff. The cellar has a multifunctional purpose and can be used independently both during the day and in the evening. Exterior Some limited changes have been implemented to the exterior.

Gira E2 in stainless steel

Design classics reflect the spirit of their age while radiating timeless beauty. With the E2 switch range, Gira created a modern classic: a linear and pared-down design that makes an uncompromisingly clear statement while placing distinctive accents on a wall. Gira will present two new versions at BAU 2017: the E2 in stainless steel, together with all the variants in the range which are now also available for flat mounting. Architects love the range. The Gira E2 has been architects' switch of choice since 1998. The only drawback until now has been that the range was only available in shatterproof and UV-resistant thermoplastic. On the occasion of the BAU trade fair, Gira has responded to the requests of many architects who wanted thi... Mais

Elbphilharmonie Hamburg

Hamburg has a new cultural landmark: the Elbphilharmonie, which opens its doors on January 11 and 12, 2017 in Hamburg’s HafenCity. On the banks of the river Elbe on approx. 1,700 reinforced concrete piles a building complex has emerged, which, in addition to three concert halls, will encompass a hotel, 45 private apartments, and the publicly accessible Plaza with a 360° panoramic view of the city. The centrepiece of the Elbphilharmonie is also one of the most exciting structural challenges in Europe at the moment: A world-class concert hall at a height of 50 metres with seating for 2,100, which is decoupled from the rest of the building for soundproofing reasons. The Elbphilharmonie is the perfect symbiosis of architecture and music at a un... Mais

Hotelpark Große Ledder

At the heart of the Bergisches Land district of Germany is the idyllic Große Ledder seminar and recreational hotel complex set in a wooded area of 50 hectares. In eleven individually designed buildings, which are spread throughout the hilly landscape, there are 91 comfortable bedrooms and 13 light and airy conference rooms with modern media systems. The hotel is run by Bayer Gastronomie. In 2008 the process of gradually modernising and, where necessary, converting the buildings began. Intelligent building technology and a KNX network allow the separate facilities to be managed from a central location. They also make a significant contribution to saving energy and ensure the highest level of comfort for the hotel guests, while creating a str... Mais

Smart Residential Building

Depending on your viewpoint, a huge conservatory expands the young family's living space – or it gives the garden a roof, for relaxed moments together even on rainy autumn evenings. The new construction is also pretty impressive in terms of energy efficiency: the building, which complies with the German energy standards of a KfW Efficiency House 70 and is fitted with PV modules on the roof, a ground source heat pump with surface collectors, and solid insulation, consumes about as much electricity as it generates, in total. In addition, all the home technology components are linked up and can be controlled via a smartphone or a tablet, and smart automatic functions make everyday life that little bit easier. The major advantage: with the basi... Mais

The Pavilion in Blackheath, London

In the London district of Blackheath the Coopers had for a number of years lived in the Pagoda, a tower-like structure originally built by the architect Sir William Chambers in the style of Orientalism. For their retirement however they wanted a modern, energy-efficient home, while preferably staying in this green part of the city. A good friend of the family suggested building within the grounds of the Pagoda and their son, Sam Cooper of E2 Architecture + Interiors, went on to design the new family home. For Sam, the demanding design of the new building was a challenge: the house not only had to blend in with the adjacent listed buildings but also fit into the local conservation area. In addition, his parents - architect Philip and inte... Mais
