In Schaffhausen’s forest cemetery, every year for 10 days one of the only firefly populations north of the alps shine and fly.
I worked on a short portraitfilm about my school of architecture in
Switzerland, from which I graduated in January. Finally it is online:
Another forgotten project. Too small for the portfolio, but nice in here.
Plotted together with Matthias Schnell. :)
Existing Bikestore on the groundlevel wants showroom on the flat roof top. As this building marks the entrance for an old industrial area, which is full of vivid small starups, we gave it its rightfull importance.
This project came out of a very wonky assignment. The liberty was confusing, but I like in what it ended. Anarchy?
This video shows the light situation from sunrise to sundown. This is a follow-up post to my cottage project.
I used Vectorworks to build the 3D, Cinema4D to add materials and setting the lights as well as the rendering of the frames. Everything was compiled in Adobe Premiere Pro and some effects added in Adobe After Effects.
The flickering on some of the surfaces are caused by the Global Illumination settings in Cinema4D, I will have to look into that..
This project was part of a seminar class about the relation between food and architecture. Even though I tried, I have to admit I didn’t really understand it. I decided instead to think about how the kitchen lost importance in a house. The design was built up around these thoughts.
The kitchen is made the biggest space and put in the middle of the room layout, to connect all the other rooms. It is the intent to make the kitchen a space where one wants to be. It shouldn’t just be a technical room for the bothersome preperation of food, but also a place where one enjoys company, preparation of food, and the meal itself.
North is on the right on the plan.
The renderings are in the late afternoon.

Rural sprawl was a traditional form of settlement in the alps. With increasing population and tourism, the sprawl weighs heavy on nature and the taxpayer, since the low density and the technical demands to infrastructure in the mountains cause extensive costs.
Helsinki Wood Design Workshop Fall 2012.
Housing proposal on an old storage building
from the 70s in an old harbor area of Helsinki.
The workshop was for 6 days. I have never
worked this fast in a group before, or at all.
Our design idea leans on the formal language
of the 70s and connects to the building by
continuing the idea of the ribbons of the elevations
into onto the fifth façade, the roof.
Students in this group:
Tuula Mäkiniemi (Aalto University)
Boris Ikeda (Hafencity University)
Philipp Stäheli (Zurich University of Applied Sciences)
