Voting for the circularWOOD research project

Congratulations: The circularWOOD research project has made it to the finalists of the »Sustainability Challenge«, which is organised by »Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen« (DGNB). You can still vote for circularWOOD or another nominated project on the Sustainability Challenge website until 16 June.


Two researchers from the Technical University of Munich and Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts have examined and analysed several timber construction projects in detail - including our multi-award-winning project Fire Station in Straubenhardt: the solid timber construction, which is supported on V-columns, has attracted a lot of attention as the »cradle to cradle« principle has been implemented here convincingly and consistently.
We are delighted that the Straubenhardt fire station was able to contribute to the success of this research project.


Trier main fire station: Groundbreaking with Minister President Malu Dreyer

Minister President Malu Dreyer and Wolfram Leibe, Mayor of the City of Trier, as well as numerous cooperation partners, gave the starting signal for the construction of the new Trier main fire station on 7 June. »We are all really looking forward to this fantastic building, which will also set new architectural accents in Trier,« emphasised Malu Dreyer in her speech. Mayor Wolfram Leibe also praised the design for a building »that offers all the prerequisites to guarantee modern security within the legal framework.«

According to our plans, a main fire station with rescue station and integrated control centre arises in the immediate vicinity of the Kaiserthermen World Heritage Site and in the heart of the city of Trier. Our Stuttgart office won the associated competition in 2022.

Awarded first prize: competition »Verdener Campus«

We are delighted - together with WES LandschaftsArchitekten - to have won first prize in the competition »Reorganization and expansion of the Verden school campus«. The implementation of a new pedagogical space concept offers the opportunity to make the Verden campus fit for the future through structural additions - with a change from closed class groups to open learning landscapes. At the same time, integration into the newly emerging campus park will be successful. Unfortunately, we have to refrain from publishing our design concept until the end of the blocking period.

Groundbreaking Ceremony »Regional Prison in Altstätten«

The groundbreaking Ceremony for the Regional Prison in Altstätten in the Swiss canton of St. Gallen took place on 23 May. This symbolic act  officially heralded the start of the construction phase for the new building, which is expected to be inaugurated in 2027. The extension will enable the prison to operate in a modern and secure manner in line with current requirements.

»Thyssen-Krupp-Areal« in Cologne: 3rd Place

We are delighted to announce that our competition entry for the »Thyssen-Krupp-Areal« in Köln-Ehrenfeld has been awarded third place! Our proposal was developed together with the landscape architect Planstatt Senner, Berlin. Congratulations to the competition-team!

Ehrenfeld, the lively district not far from Cologne city centre, is undergoing a process of change: from an industrial location to an urban living and service district. The approximately 21,000 square metre quarter around the former Thyssen-Krupp administration building is to be made accessible to the public and offer space for innovation, culture and creative exchange, while retaining as much of its historic character as possible.

In the eastern area, the site is densified with the help of five buildings that reflect the construction rhythm of the historic production hall. To the north, the building structure culminates in a 15-storey tower building that corresponds with the existing and planned high points in the neighbourhood. The supporting structure of the former open-air hall will be retained in its existing location and will form the centre of the quarter as a »market hall«. This stands above the partially covered outdoor space - an urban »playground«.

Welcome to our new interns!

Gemeinschaftsschule Insel Gartenfeld: Recognition in Competition

Our design for Gemeinschaftsschule Insel Gartenfeld in Berlin has received recognition. Together with the landscape architects Planstatt Senner, we are delighted with this success.

The special location on the south-eastern edge of the Insel Gartenfeld prompted the desire for a school building that would define the space and image. In our structuralist design, the individual learning buildings are connected to form a common whole and offer a high quality of stay thanks to the interlocking open spaces. Communicative and natural spaces play a special role. The characteristic shed roofs and the brick plinths made from recycled stones refer to the industrial past of Gartenfeld Island. At the same time they shape the image of an independent, forward-looking place of learning.

Selected as Winning Project!

We are very pleased with our success in the two-stage competition for the »New Outpatient Hospital in Lucerne«. The winning project proposal was developed by our Basel office together with PPM Baumanagement AG from St. Gallen.

The design paves the way towards a modern hospital infrastructure and envisages two buildings of different sizes for the new outpatient center. Between them, a new attractive staircase creates a valuable link to the adjacent hospital - or to the park, which will be created in a later construction phase on the site of the existing main building. The jury expressly praised the placement of the volumes and the connecting joint, which they considered to be an "outstanding urban design concept". The "consistently well-organized floor plans", which ensure clarity and functionality, were also rated positively.
