Berlin based Jürgen Mayer H, a world renowned architect, known especially for his ‘Metropol Parasol’ in Seville, uses particularly idiosyncratic shapes and material in his work -to which, the results are, quite frankly, a pleasure to behold. The architectural theology, at the firm, is to form an architectural harmony between the body, nature and technology. The firm has won numerous awards for their work and Jürgen himself has been a professor at some prestigious universities. Take a look as we take you on a tour through some of our most spectacular commercial architecture at homify.
Based in a former market square, in Seville's historic centre, this masterpiece was created. The ‘Metropol Parasol’ is considered to be the worlds largest wooden structure. It offers viewing points, a cultural hub, cafes and bars. It’s form was inspired by the city cathedral and is made of locally sourced trees.
The airport building of the medieval town of Mestia, demonstrates the architectural references to the historic towers of the city. Being a UNESCO world heritage site, this one is pretty difficult to hide. Modern and transparent architecture that has been implemented at relatively low cost and built extremely fast.
An office building, in north Hamburg, inspired by its landscape; which is dominated by waterways. The glass horizontals, flowing around the outside of the building, like transparent tubes of water with pockets of air in them. The landscape architecture surrounding the building also pays homage to the waterways of the Alster area.
These buildings, in the natural science and technology park, situated in northern Denmark put an emphasis on the innovative nature and the special educational concept of the park. Awakened simply by their outward appearance, curiosity and extension to the technology and natural form of the design.
The special design, of the Berlin apartment building JOH 3, is recognisable mainly for its curtain-slat façade; the plastic, of which takes up the theme of
City Landscape and thus leads to a modern reinterpretation of the classic residential building concept. The design principle is also applied to the interior of the property.
Another office project in Hamburg’s old town. The Steckelhörn has solid-looking ceramic façade and is broken by verticals running, without order, down the windows. This results in a highly desirable and original impression; giving the building the effect of melting.
