New residential building B42

A hybrid residential building is to be built in Bremen. From the outside, the property presents itself with two closed structures. The ground floor, made of exposed concrete, contains the living spaces. Inside, it opens up with a wide glass front to its large terrace with pool. The cut-out on the inside of the building offers protection from the sun and rain. The upper floor houses the bedrooms and is made entirely of wood.

Office today

In the future, the office will no longer be the place just to work, but much more the place to meet in person for exchanges with colleagues and will no longer have to be visited across the board. Workplaces will probably no longer be set up for just one employee, flexible working time models and locations will create space for less office space and more areas for meeting and communication.

New housing for students

In a new project development, the focus is on creating a friendly, community-oriented place for students to live.
