Our design scheme of the Augsburg Innovation Park development plan is intended to be innovative, coherent and strongly identifiable. We developed the different blocks so that they allow through pedestrian paths and uninterrupted through views to maintain strong connections and visual communication with the surrounding context. The large production halls are shaped like square forms with a perforated circular external skin. The research centres and the offices are wrapped around the production halls and they are placed on the north of the plots along the pedestrian path at the major points and the future remarkable corners. The research centrescan be reached directly from the ground floor, and are linked to the production halls by the intermediate spaces located between the square halls and the circular envelope. The offices located on upper floor levels 1 and 2 are independent and have their own access to the ground floor.
Saint-Denis, France 2009
A coloured roof which gives reference to the lanterns of the cathedrals next to the building.
The body of the building seen from the main street shows a glazed screen façade giving the possibility for transparency in the interior gardens and under the coloured ceiling.
Bobigny, France 2012
A visually remarkable amenity in the city centre , visible by its façades and its roof, a founding element of the project. We designed it to be both welcoming and protective, turned inwards towards inner courtyards to ensure privacy.
Tallinn, Estonia 2008
The project is designed as connected fragments: blue islands that are both isolated from the façade by circulation areas and open to an inner sea. The inner void of the courtyard evokes the outline of the Tallinn shoreline and contrasts with the regular oblong form of the external volume
