High above Vienna is the private detached house “CoMED”. A demanding project due to the requirements, specifications and restrictions, that was planned by ad2 Architects.

The architects worked with a south-westerly gradient, which perfectly represents the sun's course and also offers a great view of the city of Vienna. Also the high demands of the clients, such as children's rooms with bath, open kitchen with “bar”, outdoor seating as dining place, could be fulfilled. Furthermore, the team of ad2 Architects also considered the height requirements with the desired maximum volume and worked with the “maximum design”.

As a result, four floors were built with closed sides to the street, extensive glazing with a view of Vienna and the adjoining garden. Thus the daylight is carried perfectly into the house. Around the house there is a metal fence and a tree, which prevents view relations.

The spectacular façade of the detached house was clad with ALUCOBOND® spectra Galaxy Blue.


Eight out of ten Porsche buyers are men over fifty. The car manufacturer has developed the “Destination Porsche” brand concept, including corporate architecture, to counteract this state of affairs.

BCF Arena

Once upon a time, it is said that there was a bloodthirsty dragon who lived in a cavern in the gloomy Gottéron Gorge and who could only be vanquished with God’s help. Today the dragon’s only role is in a medieval legend, but it reminds us how dangerous this rugged landscape can be in snow, ice and floods.

Green Line House

Houses in Masuria, like the families living in them, share the same tactic: they keep a low profile when chilly winds blow in across the flat landscape from the Baltic Sea. This is why this house sits low in the landscape, nestles up against hillocks and tucks itself in under grassy covers.
