"The Refugio" is located directly on a 30-meter-high cliff in southeast Mallorca. The two-story house is a reduced, white cube that is deliberately closed off from the street. There, the facade serves as a neutral canvas, providing an appropriate backdrop for four tall palm trees. Through a seven-meter-high hall with an open gallery, the main orientation of the house opens to the sea. Views and sunlight are directed by wooden sliding shutters on the upper floor. Local natural stones, lime plasters, white concrete and the concise wooden elements create a relaxed Mediterranean architectural composition. The cubic architecture of the structure provides a framework for reinterpreted traditional architectural details.

In the middle of the historic Münzviertel, 25 compact and well-designed new apartments are being created in an apartment house in Hamburg. The architecture creates a link between Hamburg brick architecture on the street side and sustainable greening concepts for climate adaptation on the courtyard side. High proportions of photovoltaic panels, maximum building efficiency and a building app make an important contribution to climate protection and provide a high level of living comfort. Lovingly developed details and special material compositions, right down to the choice of bricks used from Petersen Tegl, make URBAINITY JUNGLE a valuable unique building.
