In architecture everything is a part of everything else, as it is in real life.
BUILDING UPON ARCHITECTURE, ART AND NATURE
The ancient Greek understanding of architecture is founded on the three principles of stability, usability and beauty. What could be more forward-thinking that to construct modern buildings according to these principles? Artprojekt’s sustainable projects, which combine lasting value, attractive design and unusual usage concepts developed in cooperation with both up-and-coming and renowned architects, are doing precisely this.
As practitioners of the “mother of all arts”, today’s architects can make use of all of the tools available – from painting, sculpture and landscape art to video, lighting and media art. Artprojekt brings together architects and visual artists right at the planning phase so they can closely coordinate their work and ensure they are on an equal footing as the project unfolds. The resulting integrative and, thus, sustainable solutions follow the company philosophy of “building with artists instead of decorating buildings with art.”
This integrative principle also draws on the harmonious embedding of a building in its urban environment as well as its natural surroundings. No Artprojekt development team is complete without landscape and garden architects. Their role in architecture is becoming increasingly important, for example in the creation of green courtyards and terraces (in our recent Varnhagen Palace project) or new projects incorporating green building concepts.
The following examples of projects currently in planning, under construction or already completed illustrate the synergies of architecture, art and nature that we at Artprojekt aspire to and achieve in the attractive living spaces we create.
