Taiwan Glass FPG, Fujian, Architecture

A new company base for Taiwan’s largest glass manufacturer, Taiwan Glass in Fujian, China, a 4.200 sqm office building was commissioned by the client to administer the new factory complex. A three-storey building to house the company’s offices, administration, showroom, restaurants as well as apartments for company managers along with connected buildings such as the gatehouse and a plant building were constructed. The general floor plan of the building was structured around two large courtyards allowing for a generous amount of daylight and generating a very comfortable working environment. Together with Taiwan Glass a partially coated Low-E glass was developed, which was produced especially for the façade of the new office building in Fujian. The coated areas of the glass are mirror-finished from the outside but still remain transparent from the inside. The result is a glass facade that provides the required protection from sun and heat as well as producing an aesthetically interesting appearance.

Stählemühle, Eigeltingen, Interior Design

The client Stählemühle commissioned the conversion of an old mill estate into a high quality distillery for award winning liquors. Making up a total of 143 sqm, the conversion comprised the distillery, the degustation and tasting space on the estate. The design puts specified traditional materials in a modern context while the main focus is on the creation of a presentation and sales area for the distillery’s products. Exposed concrete walls and raw asphalt flooring were specified to contrast the polished finish of the distillery machine. The glass containers of the liquors act as lenses, magnifying the texture of the exposed concrete walls. All specified furniture was supplied by e15, with key items being custom-made for this project.

Sign Kommunikation, Frankfurt am Main, Interior Design

Commissioned to convert the interior of an old steam cooling station nestled on the banks of the Main river in Frankfurt into new offices for the graphic agency Sign Kommunikation. With its dark brick façade and loophole-like windows framed by red and white folding shutters, an office layout was conceived based on generous and natural use of space, while specifying varying materials as exposed concrete and walnut to create masterful contrasts. The centre of the building is a ten-meter (thirty feet) high concrete entrance hall whilst its true centrepiece is an atmosphere created especially for the needs of creative minds, which is at once equally conducive to individual contemplation, communication and teamwork. Services provided included all planning phases (planning phases 1-9) and implementation of all furniture.

Xue Xue Institute, Taipei, Interior Design

To create the first private university in Taiwan, the conversion of an empty, ten storey, 8200 sqm large office tower in the centre of Taipei’s Nai Hu commercial district into the Xue Xue Insitute was commissioned. Central to the interior design concept was the idea of promoting communication between different user groups to enhance interdisciplinary exchange as a basis for better working and learning – away from traditional podium-style lecturing towards a more active and lively exchange of ideas between professors and students. The completion of the interior included the conception of the ground floor shop and media gallery, the second floor restaurant and kitchen areas, as well as the classrooms and office facilities located on the third floor to sixth floor. A central element made from oak serves as guiding orientation on every floor. Alongside designing and realising the interior architecture, the briefing also included the planning and realisation of all furniture. The Xue Xue Institute is Taiwan’s first private academy dedicated entirely to the creative arts, design and culture.

Bergman, Frankfurt am Main, Interior Design

In 2000, the Bergman shop in downtown Frankfurt was realized. Designed as a concept store, PHILIPP MAINZER developed an interior layout that was entirely new and unique in Germany. On three levels covering more than 400 sqm of space, men´s amd women´s fashions were displayed alongside furniture, home accessories, beauty products, books, music and more. Bergman`s philosophy was to approach the design topic with a dynamic, yet reduced aestheticism that emphasizes the unique identity, quality and individual story of each of its products. The interior design expanded on this basic theme to produce balanced, well-designed spaces that highlight the presentation of the products without undue distraction.
