Fein 1 Central, Tel Aviv

January 17, 2022|Architecture, BigSEE Architecture Award 2022 – Winner, Israel, Residential architecture|

Located in south Tel Aviv, a degraded area experiencing rapid transformations, the apartment complex introduces much needed housing and street-front commercial spaces, while preserving fragments of the existing structure. Moving away from the characteristic Tel Aviv building typology by inverting the typical box building inside – out, the 6 storey building provides apartments with cross ventilation, while the inner courtyard becomes a focal area of the complex allowing for large

Concept The design won an open international architecture competition in 2013. The concept envisages the integration of an urban office building into a historical environment while taking a distinctive and contemporary approach.

Riepl Gründe, Gallneukirchen

January 14, 2022|Architecture, Austria, BigSEE Architecture Award 2022 – Winner, Landscape and urban space|

The urban character of the new buildings pays homage to the brushstroke and the rhythms of the existing city. Widenings and narrowings between the individual elements define clear urban spaces and spatial sequences: opposite the rectory, a small town square serves as the entrée to the new district. From the square, a path leads via a set of stairs to Gaisbacher Strasse. On the northeast corner, the highest point, where

Haus P

January 14, 2022|Architecture|

Das Wohnhaus besetzt ein steil abfallendes, Richtung Südwesten orientiertes Grundstück. Die dem Hang gleichsam einkomponierte Entwicklung des Gebäudes und sein dunkler Verputz zollen der Topografie, dem benachbarten Umfeld und den gewohnten Blickbeziehungen vor Ort Respekt. Großzügige Fensterflächen öffnen das Wohnhaus zur reizvollen Landschaft des unteren Mühlviertels und sorgen für einen Wohnzimmerblick Richtung Alpen. Ein winkelförmiger Anbau an den Gebäudekern schafft einen überdachte Verweilzone im Freien, der ein Pool vorgelagert

István Széchenyi Primary School, Budakeszi

January 12, 2022|Architecture, BigSEE Architecture Award 2022 – Winner, Hungary, Public and commercial architecture|

A house is a message and a place where one can find help. The smell, the atmosphere and the hubbub of the school will stay with us even after decades, because it is „our place”, as Attila Turi likes to say. Built with 16 classrooms and a gymnasium, the elementary school is constructed around a closed courtyard, on a semicircular suburban plot. Enclosed by the four wings and accessible

January 11, 2022|Architecture, Austria, BigSEE Architecture Award 2022 – Winner, Residential architecture|

The first impression of the construction is of a container as a living space. However, the
