Casa nella roccia

The archaic idea of living in a cave is the basis of the unique rock house. The architect Werner Tscholl has catapulted it fantastically consistently into the present time. And we were allowed to accompany the construction of these living spaces. When working directly on the rock, variables were to be expected from the very beginning. So we brought with us the necessary flexibility to precisely fit the modern and fragile materials, such as glass, between the sharp edges. The rock house now offers the primeval human protection through the proximity to the stone as well as the wonderful modern comfort of our time. More

Marmolada, Punta Rocca

Marmolada is the highest panoramic terrace in the Dolomites. But it is less this record detail of which we as steel constructors are proud. It is the countless little things that we had to master for this special place. The transport of the components via three cable cars was extremely cumbersome. Heavy parts had to be pulled up with the snow groomers. The impossibility of pre-assembling larger parts required complex assembly work on site and in thin air. The visitor no longer notices the steel construction. For him, the former clearly prevails: the highest Dolomite panorama in the world.   More

Im Kult

The rooms of the former soap factory in Marling combine the cultural sectors of food, design and art in a wondrous way. The architecture offers the space to present special objects and to feel the vibrating lifestyle in a concise and at the same time reserved way. We have lined up to implement the concept in the best possible way. In addition to the light points shimmering through the perforated sheeting in the roof, the realization of the 3x3m glass revolving windows was a tricky task. So the original outside windows could be preserved, while inside unobtrusive linear glass constructions guarantee the necessary insulation.   More

The new SIDI SPORT headquarter is an extremely high tech and dynamic building. Each one of the steel arches, whose job is to erect the whole building, are positioned 30m away one another. The arches intersect with each other at an inclination angle, which varies from a minimum of 10 degrees to a maximum of 15. This has been achieved thanks to the implementation of modern computing, 3D design software and a fierce collaboration with Architect IvanoSebellin Valentino. More

Park City Residence

A house presented Otto Walker Architects with dramatic views and a choice site. Using a mix of raw timbers and chunky, native stones, Otto developed a concept that responded to the client’s specific wishes.“The materials are intrinsic to the area, and it’s still a bit of an Alpine feel that just seems to make sense there,” says Otto. “The client wanted lots of views, and indoor/outdoor living was also a component. Everybody wants to do some cooking outdoors.”In this case, the use of an opening glass wall was “kind of a program requirement,” says the architect. “The owners definitely wanted a large opening in that location – it was a deck.” Otto / Walker specified the highly weather-resistant NanaWall WA67, a thermally broken, aluminum foldi...
