Holder Mathias is architect and lead designer at Center Parcs Woburn Forest for the 16,000m2 pool and leisure building together with the 24,000m2 sports, conference and spa complex with a combined construction value of £97m. These feature Center Parcs’ largest and most sophisticated "sub tropical swimming paradise" (STSP), a state of the art spa, sports facilities and conference venue together with a wide range of restaurants, retail offers and leisure activities. The whole complex is designed to be invisible from outside the site and this was instrumental in securing planning consent at a public inquiry.
The headquarters of Würth Sverige lives up to its location as an iconic gateway building to the city of Örebro in the heart of Sweden. The building is home to a highly efficient automated warehouse system, a shop and the headquarters for office workers. The building merges the vernacular colour of Falu red which is embedded in Swedish culture with the colours of Würth. Falu red adorns many of the vernacular buildings in Sweden and seen here in a new contemporary context.
One Central Park is the landmark first stage of the boldly conceived ‘Central Park’ precinct. One Central Park comprises 623 apartments in two richly planted residential towers rising above a retail centre.
Designed by Ateliers Jean Nouvel with PTW Architects, One Central Park’s design is centred on two innovative ‘green’ technologies: heliostats and hydroponics, applied with unprecedented imagination and scale.
In addition, two precinct-wide initiatives – a low-emission central thermal plant and water recycling factory – are holistically embedded in the design of One Central Park, serving people, profit and planet; an exemplar project for urban utility infrastructure.
Like a small county settlement, juxtaposition of seven house-like volumes with hipped roofs forms the office campus.The individual 'houses' integrate to each other either through gardens, roof gardens, upper or lower patios and paths and atriums. The brown color of the exterior brings up the soft wood effect and unifies the structure. Daylight enters through roofs and all transparent sides, creating a diffused lighting mood in the spacious internal space until the basement floor. To provide balance of light and shadow and to increase the efficiency of passive climate control, the masses are enveloped with a designed mesh system.
Dreischeibenhaus provides 35.000 m² of upgraded state-of-the-art office space in the heart of Düsseldorf’s CBD. This high-rise building, former headquarter of Thyssen Krupp, is already a unique heritage landmark and famous throughout Germany. Designed by internationally-renowned HPP Architects, the completed refurbishment is in compliance with LEED Gold Standard Green Building Criteria. Particular highlights are the façade, an impressive two-story entrance lobby, spectacular roof terraces and sustainable engineering. Prior to completion, the building has been already fully let to prominent tenants, such as Roland Berger, A.T. Kearney, Allen & Overy, Gleiss Lutz, Latham & Watkins and Jones Lang LaSalle.
“Krøyers Plads” Is a modern version of the old harbor warehouses. The project consists of 38 high end apartments in combination with harbor front a new square and lively and attractive restaurants in the ground floor. The project has a prime location at the Copenhagen harbor overlooking “New Haven” and neighbor to the world best restaurant “Noma”. The architecture is reinterpreting the old warehouses. The facades are made off special tiles, making the building able to blend with the surrounding historical buildings. The project is the first apartments in Denmark to be Eco labeled by the Nordic Eco label.
Rotterdam has a new icon. At a historical location at the Binnenrotte, next to Blaak Station and the largest weekly open air market, the first covered market of the Netherlands was realised. Markthal includes a huge market floor under an arch of apartments. Its shape, colourful interior and height turn Markthal into an unique spectacle. Unique is not only its shape and size, but especially the way the different functions are combined. The combination of an apartment building covering a fresh food market with food shops, restaurants, a supermarket and an underground parking is found nowhere else in the world.
The story begins in 1995, with the creation of the Euroméditerranée urban development agency and a partnership with the Port Authority to ensure the transformation of the coastal site into an urban economic re-development project. Located on a brownfield site, the 2.5 km waterfront development stretches from the CMA CGM tower all the way to the historic “Vieux Port” beyond. Inaugurated for the 2013 Marseille European Capital of Culture festivities, the new urban promenade, named “Boulevard Euroméditerranée”, offers a high-quality public space and major new public and private facilities, building a metropolitan pole of attraction that changes the city’s image.
The Cité musicale départementale de l'Île Seguin, a first-rate music facility and a permanent leisure and cultural venue, will gather in the same complex every single step of the musical world: a music school, rehearsal and recording studios, the Hauts-de-Seine Choir School and an orchestra hosted in residence, a 6000 person concert hall, a 1150 seat auditorium, a musical café and musical shops. The building, with its iconic shape - a weaved wooden egg protected by a rotating solar wing - will be the cultural figurehead of West Paris.
The healing architecture of New North Zealand Hospital – designed by Herzog & de Meuron – will set new standards in healthcare design and healthcare delivery. With a modest four floors at its highest point, the hospital is designed on a very human scale despite its large size. The soft, organic form of a four-leaf clover connects the many components of the hospital and ensures a feeling of safety as well as efficient flows. To support the healing of each patient the wards will have a view over the green garden in the centre or over the surrounding landscape.
