Revaler Spitze

Aluminium system solutions for urban industry architecture By mid-2021, after completion of two construction phases, the project “Revaler Spitze“ will have created a flexibly useable office and commercial space in the heart of Berlin Friedrichshain.

Case Sabin

“Case Sabin”, the building involved in the project, is a Casaclima house with gold energy efficiency rating. It is a certified passive building. It stands out for the high thermal insulation of the shell, the use of high heat performance windows and doors and for its superb resistance to air.

Private house –attic room - new building

The work involved a 500 m2 attic in Marsciano in the Italian region of Umbria, half way between Perugia and Todi. To meet the needs of the owners, the architect created three large-scale living areas linked by an entrance hallway: the open living space, the sleeping zone and a small spa in which to relax. With interplay of doorways, the distribution of the spaces responds to daily needs and brings light into all spaces, thus making the most of the attic’s dominant position over the outdoor space. For both the indoor and the outdoor openings, the designer selected only Eclisse pocket sliding door systems: the result is a space that expands as needed. The Syntesis® sliding door system, without door jambs and architraves, was used in non... More

Vlietland Hospital

Hundreds of years experience in serving the community, the Vlietland Hospital in the Dutch town of Schiedom has placed high demands on hygiene, safety and efficiency. The hospital built in 1808 was restored and redesigned by EGM Architects (Dordrecht, NL) from 1999 to 2008. With its 450 beds, the modernised facility today takes care of a multitude of patients. The classically built hospital consists of a linear block with several irregular angles. Its shape resembles a hairpin. Glazed walkways connect the opposite sections of the building to keep walking distances short. Light-flooded transparency characterises the glazed ground floor, which is framed by thick, seemingly naturally grown wooden beams. Naturalness is the guiding theme o... More
