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 MODELL 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.

 

In contrary to the development of the project, leading to more refined and enhanced quality in design and later the execution, the models often decay after their use due to their simple materiality. Eventually we can observe a beauty in decay as on this concept model of a mosk.

 

The fotographical documentation of this process of dissolution stands in contrast to the refinement of the project in the further design and realization process. There we take utmost care to ensure quality at all levels for our clients, professional, with joy and scrutiny. The model decays, the building will last.

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 the VgV procedure with a proposed solution, our team was able to satisfy the Jury with the design of a building ensemble that creates a new center for the townspeople and thereby creates references to the defining elements of the new square.

CONSTRUCTION OF UNION HOUSE w/ PRAYERHALL

The construction of a new union house with seminar rooms and a prayer hall is intended to serve as a space of encounters, cultural exchange and prayer for a cosmopolitan Muslim community. The new building is carefully integrated into an environment characterized by dense trees in terms of material and volume. The reduced function-related design and the prayer room on the upper floor, which is vaulted with a light, geometrically complex wooden construction, give the building its special expression and identity.

BOOK PUBLISH

"KLANGRÄUME"

The Church in Munich-Laim was published in the recently published book 'Klangraum' by Uffelen Verlag. ISBN 978-3-945539-14-9 (DE)

Sound spaces are a construction task in the varied, constant change. They create the balancing act between classic event locations and modern locations.

The book shows around 50 contemporary projects from Germany, Austria and Switzerland in which sound was built.

FACADE DESIGN - GAS HEATING PLANT KIEL

The textile facade cladding of the new power plant in Kiel, carried out by Hillebrandt GmbH according to our competition design (1st prize 2015), confirms the quality of the design, which takes away the bulk of the up to 60m high building volume, the suspended textile facades, and the play of light changing playful appearance throughout the day.

SUMMER EXCURSION

Our team's summer excursion this year took us through the Ampermoos, the Grafrath gorge, over a water level to the Fürstenfeld monastery. We experienced the diverse natural environment of the Amper river at midsummer temperatures in small canoes, a refreshing and inspiring change from everyday office life.

FIVE YEARS

The final wrapping-up after ending phase 9 for the new church building in Munich-Laim showed: the building has proven itself after 5 years of use. The church building is very satisfied and the community feels comfortable. As a CO2-neutral building, the community center generates energy surpluses every year that are fed into the public grid.

 

We are happy about this success, which corresponds to the quality understanding of our office. This beautiful result would not be possible without the committed cooperation of everyone involved in the planning and implementation. We would like to express our thanks for this.

OFFICE EXCURSION

The tour of exemplary architecture in the Alpine region and a subsequent hike led our team from Garmisch-Partenkirchen through the Höllentalklamm to the Alpspitz.

Thanks to good weather, 1,200 meters of altitude were climbed with a lot of endurance and joy.
