Powerhouse and de Zwarte Hond complete Assen train station with striking triangular wooden roof

Powerhouse Company in collaboration with de Zwarte Hond cleaned up the transport flows by implementing a new platform tunnel for pedestrians, restorating and shortening of the existing bicycle tunnel, adding a new car tunnel and an underground bicycle shed. This allowed for the new train station to become an inviting pedestrian friendly plaza that opens up towards the city of Assen. Egbert de Boer “The shape of the canopy was created by placing an apparently simple triangle on the site, with a slight slope at the entrance of the underground bicycle shed and a curve at the level of the tracks. This has created an elegant, almost floating structure that responds on all sides to its context.” - Nanne de Ru, Founder Powerhou... More

Haus Koeris

Haus Koeris is a private home that is situated among tall pine trees on a lot near a lake in close proximity to Berlin. As a structure entirely made of wood, the building is elevated from the ground to minimise the impact on the land and to avoid contact with the seasonally damp soil. The irregular shape of the house stems from the position of existing trees. Five boxes are arranged in a staggered layout with the individual rooms overlapping each other allowing for connections between them. The shifts in the floor plan create small patios and green niches along the building‘s perimeter. Some of these alcoves are sheltered from wind or hidden from views, others capture the sun and thus create pleasant microclimates. The recesses give t... More

Haus für Kinder K

The compact new building of the Kaufbeuren day-care centre blends harmoniously into the surrounding residential area of multi-storey buildings, in which the building's appropriate volume picks up the proportions of the neighbourhood. An internal air space divides the simple cube into two parts. By offsetting the two parts of the building, external pergolas are created on two sides of the façade to the north and south. Due to the solid wood construction, the building is ecologically, sustainably and recyclably manufactured. High-quality surfaces made of local spruce wood create pleasant acoustics and a healthy environment for the youngest visitors. The character of the warm wooden room shell is continued in the adjacent arcades. This... More

Ménage á trois

A farm complex consisting of a farmhouse, a barn, and a washhouse was transformed into three original, striking residential units. It was important to underscore the original character of the individual structures. In the old farmhouse, existing materials such as lime plaster and old spruce wood floorboards were restored, and the original quarry stone kitchen wall was exposed.   The deliberate simplicity of the rooms and the natural lighting exude an almost monastic tranquility and make the historic legacy of the house palpable. The barn is still an open space, but has been converted into a generous loft. The large window to the east offers a view of Marquartstein Castle. An extension was added to the washhouse. Large openings toward... More

ciAsa Aqua Bad Cortina

The ciAsa (Rhaeto-Romanic for house) is a high-alpine family home in South Tyrol's St.Vigil, surrounded by the Dolomites of Val Badia. It stands on a gentle hill, right next to a thermal spring. Based on the archaic form of a house, no distinction is made between roof and façade. The rising form of the roof makes the building visible from afar, while at the same time the low eaveslines also provide protection. The shape of the trapezoid appears as a recurring element in the overall design. To illuminate the interiors, thetrapezoidal dormers are used as well as a skylight, whose light shines into the house in a cone-like shape.   The three overground floors are entirely made from the wood that fell on 30 October 2018 during he...

Double Kindergarten Glattfelden

In a row of gardens, the new building in line with the street, nestles itself up against the steep hillside south of the historic village center.   The Location in a ISOS listed townscape area (federal inventory of protected built sites of national importance) was decisive for the new edifice. It is identifiable as a public building by its defined surfaces, its silhouette and by its plasticity.   Single-floored and through its openings, the building develops an intensive relation to the private exterior spaces, which reach inwards. The garden is shaped by the positioning of the building with a street facade and a garden facade, by paved paths and squares and by hedges and big trees.   The building forms plastically dif... More
