These are particularly expressive and rich in the city’s historical centre.  After investigating and analysing the surrounding area, the façade was given a new level of quality, and the reflective principle is the main finishing accent for the building.  Without forgetting about environmental harmony, use was made of modern construction technologies, solutions and materials.

Text description provided by the architects. The Pergola of The Golf Club at NINE BRIDGES is a structure built on a location that honors an old sacred tree. The Chinese hackberry, which stood for roughly 600 years before the present golf course was constructed, unconsciously instated a place of animism. The pergola rearranges the site in accordance with the orientation of an aged tree and finds its project motifs in natural algorithms.

Inspired by the essential structures of natural algorithms, we have devised a ‘dual-duct system’ that integrates both the structure and the facility. The inner duct is used for ventilation and wrapped with a 12mm thick

Text description provided by the architects. The views of Lake Heimbach and the Meuchelberg, a nature reserve on the opposite side of the lake, the oak forest and the steep northern slope are the first impressions to take into account for the "weekend house". The latter is supposed to be the special, almost insoluble challenge. It is reasonable to assume that the house and its future occupants will benefit little from the sun. On closer inspection, however, it can be seen that especially in winter and the transition periods, the sun finds its way across the mountain through the light trees to the property due to the lack of leaves on the trees. This is an essential design
