SUSTAINABLE AND FLEXIBEL

The New Apostolic Church in Munich Laim


Conservation of resources, energy efficiency, flexibility of use and simple modular building constructions determine the work of our office as self-evident components of integral planning and design.

The New Apostolic Church is CO2-neutral. The community center is heated or cooled with a PV system and groundwater heat pump and feeds annual energy surpluses into the public grid. 

 

The flexible floor plan makes it possible to variably change the congregation rooms and to expand the sacred space from 200 to 500 seats. This makes it possible to continue to hold services for the congregation under the current spacing regulations.

HAPPY EASTER

Easter marks the beginning of the time when people can meet outdoors to shop at markets and squares and enjoy a sunny weather, the blossoming of the trees and a vivid cityscape. Especially in times of the pandemic, a well-designed public spaces, such as the as the yet unrealized Viehmarktplatz in Fürstenfeldbruck - favorite of the citizens after a multi-stage selection process - are particularly valuable for our society. 

 

We wish you a happy Easter and stay healthy !

INTERDISCIPLINARY WORK

The spatial design of a sacred space interprets geometric principles of Islamic culture with a dome supported by radially offset pairs of arches. A spatial staging of the supporting structure geometry, the visible wooden surfaces of columns, arches and dome interior, as well as the dark shimmering room boundary with fluted plaster surfaces is achieved via the lighting design. 33 Overhead floodlights radiate from the lower edge into the supporting structure of arches and bays. Around the central skylight, 5 rings of 33 integrated LED spotlights illuminate the individual compartments and light the interior. The lighting control system makes it possible to set flexible lighting accents as needed or to ensure good conditions for reading, for example.

PARAMETRIC MODEL

The design for the dome of the prayer hall is based on geomteric priciples of islamic art, with a 33 fold rotation of timber arches forming a central skylight. The structure of this oblate rotational sphere is constructed with beech plywood, due to its loadbearing capacity. On the basis of a digital 3d-concept model and in close collaboration with our team our partners Holzbau Amann and Design to Production developed a parametric model of the rotational ellipsoid sphere. Thus it was possible to define the segmentation of the filigrane structure consisting of 5-achs-milled plywood segments and optimise these for material efficient production and fast erection on site. A design process which is bridging traditional islamic art and modern digital timber engineering.

THE MODEL DECAYS, THE BUILDING WILL LAST

The development of our projects is based on a step-by-step approach, research, analysis of refrences, intense co-operation with our clients and consultants, also sketches, 3d-studies and many models. These range from urban planning scale to mass models, concept and materiality models, to 1:1 mock-ups and details of building components. Especialy concept and materiality models are made of basic and simple materials, related to the desired object in surface, haptic or play of light....

ADVENT IN DASING

We are very happy to be able to contribute to the further upgrading of the town center with the planning of the new town hall.
 

To get in the mood for our new project, we visited the Christmas market in Dasing. With the great commitment of the townspeople, the markets take place between the Maypole and the illuminated church tower on 2 Avent Sundays.

NEW TOWN HALL DASING

In a two-stage-tendering procedure with design competition the proposal for a new urban heart convinced the client. Three buildings, one existing which is to be converted, and two new will define several public spaces as new village centre. Stepping in height between the Bavarian Maypole at the lower end and a historic walled church at the higher end these public spaces offer a new experience of the village heart, traffic free, pleasant to stay, for casually meeting with a neighbour or small public events. The new buildings will be traditional in shape and materiality yet modern in design and detailing.
