Architecture firm place first, second, and third in construction competition allowing them to complete their first project in Germany 


AllesWirdGut has recently won first, second and third prize in a construction competition. Their project ‘District Office in Erlangden, Germany’ was the winning design, which competed against 30 submissions from 400 applicants. The jury decision was unanimous and start of construction is planned for 2013 for AllesWirdGut’s first project in Germany.

The company, based in Germany, has designed the building in an attempt to upgrade the structural state of the inner city of Erlangen in Bavaria. Seven finger-like structures gather around an atrium, resembling a four-leaf clover, an urban trope signifying the possibilities open to the city life of Erlangen.

The glass base of the ground floor is open to the public and features a cafeteria, and the smooth glass facade is set alongside strong aluminium fins which protect against sunlight and adding variety and depth to the structure. Airy architecture is the focal design point in the “District Office”, with a generously open staircase, and inventive use of space.

The second prize was awarded to Private Residence in Salzburg, Austria, and the third prize was awarded for Company Headquarter in Hamberg’s HafenCity, Germany.
