The Circle

Located in the Zurich Airport, you will find a brand new urban center that began to open its doors in November 2020. Covering 180,000 square meters, The Circle is a revolutionary space that boasts two Hyatt hotels, a convention center, medical and beauty services, office space, dining, shopping, art exhibits, event spaces, and co-working spaces for professionals and student alike.   One of the challenges of this project was finding a way to split the convention center into different configurations without sacrificing the style and elegance of the high angled glass ceilings.

KFAS Headquarter and Conference Center

Plasma Studio project aims at proposing a woven strategy, where the urban proposal is punctuated by several instances with higher architectural resolution and within which the KFAS headquarters and the conference center are understood as two attractor poles, pulling and articulating pedestrian flows in between.The urban design concept is based on recomposing and connecting, whilst fostering key moments from within which future growth can occur.  We conceptualize this urban fabric as a tissue in need of further material definition to generate a strong identity; its own character informed by both, the architectural instances (de)marking places on the one hand and the movement of pedestrians, which in due time will lend itself to addition...

Summer Camp

This summer camp in Dilijan, Armenia houses educational, athletic, and residential facilities. It is intended to function as a youth camp during the Summers and a business and conference center during the rest of the year.  One of the many challenges in designing this summer camp was dealing with the topography of the land. The site is along a steep and heavily forested incline. We responded to this challenge by breaking the structure into a network of smaller buildings, which cascade down the slope of the mountain.  The smaller scale of our structures not only adapts to the natural setting but also resembles the architectural environment of the city of Dilijan. The layout of the buildings encourages campers to spen... More

Project • By GROHEResearch Facilities

Darmstadtium

The Science and Conference Centre is designed as an expressive sculpture. The futuristic architecture is continued inside the complex by using energy-saving and environmentally friendly materials and technologies. A central light well in the foyer not only supplies natural light to the lower floors, it also collects rainwater for re-use, while the air is pre-heated / pre-cooled in an earth duct and conditioned in ambient air units. The washrooms are fitted with the particularly energy-efficient and water-saving GROHE Europlus E faucets. The innovative infra-red technology reliably dispenses water to the user when it is needed. It is also extremely hygienic and easy to maintain thanks to the touch-free operation. More
