Lindner niche door

Due to their flush mounted wall connections, Lindner niche doors are indispensable where there is very little space available and the doors must not block the escape routes. Maximum passage widths, the ultimate in design and functionality – the newly developed door system meets your needs and opens up new opportunities in areas that would otherwise be impossible to separate using normal doors.

In addition to dividing the room, the niche door also provides protection through various versions with options such as sound insulation, intrusion prevention, and radiation protection.

Moreover the niche door complies with the fire resistance class T30. This complements the safety concept of a quality door, through smoke and noise protection qualities with small dimensions and joint widths. Thus, no space is wasted, and wall niches are used intelligently to combine a sense of openness with the necessary requirements for escape routes. In particular, the design as a fire door T30 gives a sense of security. Also, the simple installation by adjusting a strap when closed contributes to the successful design.

The high-quality Lindner niche door is not only visually enriching. The technical details, combined with well defined aesthetics, make an especially convincing overall concept.

The sky is the limit: Lindner Baffle ceilings
Lindner Baffle Ceilings

Whether in case of fire or the eased access to installations in the ceiling void – Lindner baffle ceilings ensure safety and provide besides their open character and the attractive design for a free view and.

Due to various luminaries, sprinkler or ventilation systems in the free space between the baffles, the ceiling systems fulfil the highest international standards. Variable distances and flexible heights contribute their remaining.

Whether various suspension or centre distance – the baffle ceilings are available in different variations. Baffle ceilings offer individual and special design solutions that can easily be realised. The vertically arranged baffles impress with different materials, surfaces and inlaid metal ceiling panels – depending on the customers” wishes.

Whether in simple forms like linear grids or cross grids in form of a honeycomb structure – the creativity is nearly unlimited. Following the architectural overall concept, we realise baffle ceilings in waved design to create three-dimensional effects. You may also benefit from movable baffles which offer an extensive creative leeway.

The baffles can be equipped with many perforations. Thus, they grant a different high absorption capacity in the room. Consequently, the room acoustics can be balanced. Baffles give a special and pleasant atmosphere to your rooms by means of their sound absorption and easy integration of Lindner heating and cooling technologies.

Lindner LIGNA raised floors
Lindner LIGNA raised floors

LIGNA raised floor panels are particularly suited for offices and equipment rooms as they are both cost-efficient and environmentally friendly.

High-quality LIGNA panels are extremely lightweight and easy to handle. Lindner makes the panels to order, so that air-conducting floors have very tight joints and even cut panels or whole panels with cut-outs are most durable and available in custom sizes.

The Lindner Group collaborates with certified, environmentally conscious suppliers to ensure that our clients employ ecological, non-hazardous products. FSC or PEFC prove that the products are made from sustainable wood. Lindner”s product range covers standard E1 wood panels, panels with lower formaldehyde concentration (e.g. E 0.5) and panels without urea formaldehyde glue.

Not before long, Lindner conducted an LCA for the LIGNA manufacturing base. The Company uses the LCA to improve its processes, tackle environmental certifications and make the data available to potential clients.

An LCA describes the environmental impact of the production process, e.g. its energy/material consumption and its influence on the greenhouse effect, ozone depletion, smog, acidification and eutrophication.

The ecological assessment of LIGNA floors and the environmental product declarations (EPD) are important purchasing criteria for architects, investors and building tenants.

Soundproof doors by Lindner preserve the silence
Soundproof doors by Lindner

Lindner premium doors add to the sound protection in your rooms. Lindner Group based in Bavaria and takes on highly individual and complex projects that display the Company”s professional expertise to its best.

High quality products and a wealth of experience create perfect acoustics which are especially important in public buildings frequented by children. Acoustic doors protect the children in day care centers from noise that could disturb their natural development stage and provide a comfortable learning environment in schools.

In combination with made-to-measure Lindner partition systems, soundproof doors make for ideal acoustics in every room, even if your toddlers scream and shout the whole day. Lindner doors with one or two leaves stand out due to their excellent sound absorption coefficient of up to 50 dB Rw. Nevertheless, you do not have to forego transparency: If you so wish, the most diverse Lindner glass elements may bath your rooms in natural light.

But Lindner acoustic doors can do more – they control smoke and reliably protect the kids from fire. The Group successfully installed Lindner doors in daycare centres and various public children and youth services, e.g. the Oberstufenzentrum (CFE) in Berlin and the elementary school in Erding. Lindner carries out the project planning so that the doors run smoothly and always meet the specific requirements of the building. The Company tests special constructions in their own TÜV certified sound laboratory – thus guaranteeing optimal support from the outset.

Lindner”s own production ensures the premium quality of the doors, a short delivery time and an environmentally friendly manufacturing process. The Company predominantly uses approved recycling material processed by modern and environmentally friendly coating facilities – we preserve the environment for future generations so that they, too, may delight in the beauty of nature.

BHS-Sonthofen: Gravel processing with BHS rotor centrifugal crushers

Wear is virtually a thing of the past

BHS-Sonthofen: Gravel processing with BHS rotor centrifugal crushers

At BAUMA, BHS-Sonthofen demonstrates the rotor centrifugal crushers of the RSMX series for processing hard and medium-hard rock to produce aggregate chippings and high-quality aggregates. The “rock-on-rock” principle and the patented rotor with just two centrifugal chambers offer considerable advantages over multi-chamber rotors in everyday practice.

The requirements on the building materials concrete and asphalt – and thus on the gravel, chippings and sand used for their production – have continuously risen in recent years. Since demand for high-grade crushed sand and high-quality aggregates is also constantly rising, gravel and aggregate plants have to expand and equip their machine pools in order to meet the European standards and directives that require increased use of high-quality aggregates. BHS offers machines in four different sizes for throughput rates of up to 400 t/h.

Crushing with BHS impact crushers with vertical shafts and twin-chamber rotors is a popular choice in many plants for the production of high-quality aggregates.

BHS rotor centrifugal crushers adopt the impact crushing principle: the material is fed vertically from above onto the high-speed rotor, which is mounted on a shaft with vertical bearings. In both chambers of the rotor, the input material is rapidly accelerated outwards due to the high circumferential speed, routed out via a naturally forming material bed and hurled at high speed against a fixed annular wall, generally consisting of an anvil ring made of heavy-duty casting or an autogenous material bed.

The rotors patented by BHS with just two centrifugal chambers offer considerable advantages over three-chamber and multi-chamber rotors:
- maximum input grain sizes of up to about 80 mm for hard rock and up to 150 mm for soft rock
- optimal material flow in the rotor, free from clogging
- 15 to 20 percent greater throughput rate with the same power consumption
- wear-related costs reduced by up to 25 percent
- exhaust air quantity reduced by more than 10 percent.

Choice of rock shelf or anvil ring

The rotor centrifugal crushers from BHS can optionally be operated with an anvil ring made of heavy-duty casting or with a rock shelf, and can thus be variably adapted to a wide range of different requirements.

If the anvil ring is used, the input material is crushed intensively by the hard impact of the rock against the impact wall, thereby developing the crushed face count of the chippings. Previously damaged rock and friable components are destroyed, significantly improving the test results of the final products.

The stepped shape of the anvil ring causes the crushed material to be removed immediately from the crushing chamber without further abrasion.

If the rotor centrifugal crusher is operated with a rock shelf, it is also suitable for highly abrasive input materials, such as quartz, as the “rock-on-rock” principle means that only very few machine components are subjected to wear.

Another advantage is that, unlike in other crushing systems, the condition of the wearing parts has no effect on the grading curve: it is only the speed of the rotor that determines the crushing performance.

Depending on the application specified by the customer and the properties of the rock, operation of the rotor centrifugal crusher can be varied:
- with anvil ring:
as crusher and cubicator for the production of aggregate chippings and high-quality aggregates from soft and medium-hard rock
for production of crushed sand
- with rock shelf:
as crusher and cubicator for the production of aggregate chippings and high-quality aggregates from hard rock
- with rock shelf or anvil ring (depending on the application):
for selective crushing of friable rock while maintaining the hard core of the material
for disaggregation of conglomerates

Every kind of rock has different characteristics; for this reason, BHS conducts tests at its in-house technical center on request. These tests are carried out using original industrial scale machines to ensure optimal and realistic crushing results. These tests give the customer the certainty that his outlay is well invested and that the new plant is future-proof.

ISH 2013: Laufen lifts the veil

The Swiss bathroom specialist Laufen will present itself from 12 to 16 March at the ISH in Frankfurt/Main (hall 3.1/stand B 51) with a fireworks display of new products and innovations. One of the highlights will be the products made from the new material SaphirKeramik (Sapphire Ceramics), by means of which the company has set out to initiate a fundamental change in the design vocabulary of ceramics. But new fittings and further developments of existing product lines, such as the latest additions to the Palomba collection, will also be on display at the Swiss bathroom specialist”s stand.

ISH 2013: Laufen lifts the veil
The new washstand basins from Laufen, made of SaphirKeramik. Faucet: Cityplus.

At the ISH 2013, Laufen is lifting the veil from its new SaphirKeramik just slightly by showing two very delicate washbasin bowls made of the innovative material as pilot examples. Thanks to its extreme hardness and bending strength, SaphirKeramik permits extremely thin-walled designs and narrow radii without compromising on stability and break resistance. Wall thicknesses of no more than about 4 mm and defined edges with radii of 1 to 2 mm are possible. “The ISH is the ideal platform for starting a revolution in the design of bathroom ceramics”, says Alberto Magrans, Senior Managing Director of Laufen, “and I am certain that we will surprise the industry with our novelties made of SaphirKeramik.” The outstanding level of innovation of the new ceramic material also impressed the expert jury, which granted this material the Designplus Award offered by Messe Frankfurt in cooperation with the German Design Council.

The washbasin bowls made of SaphirKeramik were created by the designer Andreas Dimitriadis based in Stuttgart (platinumdesign). “The new ceramic material from Laufen offers me unprecedented creative scope in design and requires a whole new way of thinking”, Dimitriadis comments enthusiastically. “We now think in terms of precise edges and slender wall thicknesses instead of surfaces and tolerances”. Of course the effect of the new “sapphire” basins on viewers also had to be considered anew, since they were to retain the natural, man-made character of ceramics in spite of all their preciseness, and feature well-balanced, harmonious proportions.

Laufen will also present two new series of fittings at the ISH, Cityplus and Twinplus, designed by Andreas Dimitriadis as well. Cityplus is a genuine icon of urban lifestyle, which stands out by its generous surface design and clean, horizontal lines. The Twinplus stands out by its slender, puristic geometries, which please the eye in bathroom interiors by their architectural unpretentiousness. Both series of fittings include the complete range and, thanks to their excellent functionality, offer users great convenience and top quality in the bathroom.

The latest additions to the Palomba Collection, which have already won several awards, will also be shown at the ISH in their entirety for the first time in Germany. The models taking the centre stage among the novelties will be the floorstanding Menhir washbasin, which recalls a rock formed and polished by the tides, and a unique bathtub with dynamic, asymmetrical geometries and a high back. Four new countertop washbasins, two washbasin bowls and a range of new bathroom furniture are grouped around these main protagonists. “The new products of the Palomba Collection are only the tip of the iceberg”, says Magrans, “since our portfolio includes many more new solutions, designs and innovations – our visitors will be in for a few surprises!”

Excellent design is not a product of chance: Five design awards in succession

Since good design has become an important criterion in the bathroom, design awards for bathroom fittings have also gained in significance – for, like a quality seal, they indicate user-friendly and excellent design to the consumer. The Swiss bathroom specialist, Laufen, is delighted that it can start off 2013 with several of the most coveted awards.

Excellent design is not a product of chance: Five design awards in succession
The “Menhir” washbasin of the Palomba Collection 2012 from Laufen was honoured with the Good Design Award 2012 for its unconventional, organic design concept.

Laufen has successfully positioned itself for the ISH year 2013 with an iF Product Design Award 2013, an Interior Innovation Award 2013, a Good Design Award 2012 and a Best of Year Award of the Interior Design magazine for the Palomba Collection 2012 as well as a special mention of the German Design Award 2013 for the bathroom collection, Living Square. “Excellent design is not a product of chance,” says Marc Viardot, Director Marketing and Products at Laufen, “but the result of in-depth research, a daring concept and a level of high innovation.”

With the award-winning designs, Laufen co-operated with the Italian star designers, Ludovica and Roberto Palomba (Palomba Collection) and the Stuttgart designer, Andreas Dimitriadis (Living Square). “The Palomba husband and wife team and Andreas Dimitriadis not only have extremely strong concepts and daring designs,” Mr Viardot continues, “but they also know and understand the Laufen brand.” Laufen’s task was to transform the aesthetically and technically challenging designs into high-quality products for the bathroom. In doing so, the Swiss company relies on its great experience and the master craftsmanship of its employees, Mr Viardot explains.

This view was also shared by the top-notch jury of the iF Awards, which described the Palomba Collection 2012 as having excellent quality of design and workmanship and, at the same time, high practical use, therefore conferring the iF Product Design Award 2013 on the collection. The elegance and functionality of the wash-place also impressed the jury members of the prestigious Interior Innovation Award, conferred by the imm cologne and the German Design Council, which chose it as the “Winner 2013″ in the bathroom category.

The unconventional design concept of the “Menhir” washbasin from the Palomba Collection 2012 also impressed the high-calibre jury of the Good Design Award 2012, which is conferred by the Chicago Athenaeum: it honoured above all the combination of free-and-easy design language and high functionality. “Menhir”, which means “tall stone” in Breton, is a floor-standing ceramic washbasin, which is available with our without wall connection. Its smooth contours are reminiscent of a rock formed and polished by the tide, its bowl organically morphing into the washbasin surface.

Furthermore, the extraordinary bathtub of the Palomba Collection also received an award: it attracted the attention of the readers of the New York Interior Design Magazine, who are mainly architects and interior designers. The trade public voted the elegant bathtub into the final round of the Best of Year Award 2012, where it was then chosen as the winner of the category, bath fixtures, by a jury comprising renowned architects and designers. A total of 660 entries were received for the online voting in which over 26,000 visitors participated.

In the case of the bathroom collection Living Square, honoured with a special mention, the jury of the German Design Council emphasised the high level of innovation of the washbasin collection which goes beyond the usual categories. Moreover, the jury members appreciated above all the outstanding design quality, brand value, functionality, ergonomics and ecological compatibility of the washbasins, which give them a high practical value in everyday life. In addition to Living Square, the Palace Collection as well as the surface finish LCC (Laufen Clean Coat) of the Swiss bathroom brand were also nominated for the coveted Award.

iF Product Design Award
Since it was established in 1953, the iF Award has been a constant, renowned label for “excellent” design. The iF Awards are conferred every year by the iF International Forum Design in six competitions. The 2013 winners were chosen by the 49-strong jury from a total of 4,352 international entries.

Interior Innovation Award 2013
imm cologne and the German Design Council have been conferring the Interior Innovation Award since 2002. It is regarded as one of the most renowned design prizes of the furniture industry worldwide. imm cologne is the patron and the German Design Council is responsible for the organisation. The Interior Innovation Award stands for top innovative achievements in all product sectors of the industry, and the awards Selection, Winner and Best of Best are conferred. Out of the group of winners, 15 products selected in a second jury round at the imm cologne also receive the label “Best of Best”.

Good Design Award 2012
The Good Design Award is one of the oldest design awards in the world and for over 60 years has been honouring outstanding products from the sectors of industrial, product and graphic design. It is conferred by the Chicago Athenaeum, the Museum of Architecture and Design together with the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies (Dublin/Athens).

Best of Year Award
The Best of the Year Award has been conferred by the Interior Design Magazine (New York) since 2005. The coveted award honours high-quality products and interior design projects in more than 50 categories. After an online vote, the winners are chosen from the group of finalists by a jury comprising leading architects and interior designers.

German Design Award
The German Design Award is the international premium award of the German Design Council and is intended to reflect the diversity of design in all sectors of everyday life. The top-notch jury consists of design experts from different disciplines and selects products and services in 10 competition categories.

Niche Doors by Lindner Group – Perfect Unit

The ultimate in design and functionality is offered by Lindner”s newly developed niche door. The open door flushes with the wall, so that the maximum passage width is maintained in the hallway and primarily characterizes the door”s exclusivity.

Niche Doors by Lindner Group - Perfect Unit
www.Lindner-Group.com

The ultimate in design and functionality is offered by Lindner”s newly developed niche door. The open door flushes with the wall, so that the maximum passage width is maintained in the hallway and primarily characterizes the door”s exclusivity.

Because of the possible band adjustment of the door in the closed state, the niche door of Lindner Group believes in the simple and quick installation.

Moreover the niche door complies with the fire resistance class T30. The safety concept of quality door by smoke and noise is complemented with small dimensions and joint width. Without wasting space, wall niches are used wisely to combine a sense of openness with the necessary requirements of escape routes.

Functional Space Savers
Having very little space available and in order to prevent escape routes getting blocked, the doors almost have to disappear, which is why the Lindner niche doors are irreplaceable. In addition to the layout the niche door also provides protection through various versions with options such as sound insulation, intrusion prevention and radiation protection. In particular, the design as a fire door T30 gives sense of security. Also, a successful design is contributed by the simple installation, adjusting strap when closed.

The technical details make a convincing overall concept, so the high-quality niche Lindner door is not only visually enriching.

Opening up new opportunities in areas that would otherwise be impossible to achieve with normal doors, the new door system of the Lindner Group meets your needs, depending on requirements. Preservation of maximum passage width is guaranteed by the flush mounted wall connections. Especially in corridors the niche door helps not only to separate different parts, but also to preserve the openness and possibilities of space.

A brief glance at the importance of architectural print media

A panel discussion with Swiss architectural writers and publishers completed the «Salon Suisse» at the 13th Architecture Biennale. Numerous guests from the world of architecture and media followed the discussion on the topic “Swiss in print – Swiss architecture’s representation through writing and publishing”, which was moderated by the British author and editor Robert Guy Wilson.

Venice. On 23rd November the “Salon Suisse” invited architects and specialised audience to Palazzo degli Ulivi Trevisan for a panel discussion on the representation of Swiss architecture in print media. The architectural writers and publishers Thomas Kramer, Martin Steinmann and Caspar Schärer, moderated by chairman Rob Wilson, discussed the importance of critical writing and architectural analysis in the different print media – books, magazines and newspapers – in Swiss architectural culture over the last 30 years. Furthermore the panelists explored the present development, regarding the challenges of digital media – and questioned in general how architecture is represented in print media nowadays and in future.

The discussion concluded the third series of early evening events, called “Salon Suisse III”, which took place from 20-24 November under the motto “Talking architecture, media …and a touch of the Swiss”. The “Salon Suisse” was an event programme by the Swiss Cultural Foundation Pro Helvetia and accompanied the Swiss contribution to the 13th Architecture Biennale with readings, lectures, discussions, workshops and performances at the Palazzo degli Ulivi Trevisan. The programme was part of the “collateral events” of the Biennale and was partnered by the Swiss bathroom specialist Laufen.

For Béatrice Rüeger from Laufen, the partnership with the “Salon Suisse” was a heartfelt investment in supporting the dialogue between architecture, Swiss culture and lifestyle: “We enjoyed it very much as a Swiss producer to get in contact with international peer groups and creatives during the Biennale.”

Thomas Kramer (born 1966) is publisher and managing director of Scheidegger & Spiess, a Zurich-based art, architecture and photography publisher.

Martin Steinmann (born 1942) is an architect and author, and studied architecture at ETH Zurich. He has written extensively on contemporary Swiss architecture, and was Editor of “Archithese” magazine from 1979-86. Since 1987 he has been Professor of Architecture at ETH Lausanne.

Caspar Schärer (born 1973) studied architecture and journalism. He is an editor for the Swiss magazine “werk, bauen + wohnen” and a regular contributor to several magazines and newspapers.

Robert Guy Wilson (born 1967) is a curator, writer and editor, who trained as an architect. He is editor of “Block” magazine, Associate Lecturer in Criticism, Communication and Curation at Central St Martins, London. Wilson is Salonnier of Salon Suisse.

First Secoder 2 Enabled Smartcard Reader with NFC Interface

First Secoder 2 Enabled Smartcard Reader with NFC Interface
secoder-2-plus

Zug, 09.10.2012 – Secure, wireless, and modern are attributes of the new and extraordinarily compact smartcard reader presented by the Swiss security expert EMPELOR GmbH. It is the outcome of a project conducted together with a partner from the German finance business. The extremely flat intelligent device is compatible with the Secoder-2-standard of the “Deutsche Kreditwirtschaft”, and incorporates also an NFC as well as a Bluetooth interface, in order to make it usable together with modern mobile end user devices such as smartphones and tablets, thus providing highest possible security in combination with user-friendliness.

In the context of banking applications such as online banking, mobile banking or electronic payment, electronic signatures are used whenever it is necessary to identify beyond any doubt the author or sender of an electronic document or data set, and to guarantee the integrity of the signed electronic information. It is obvious what consequences could be expected, if a malicious third person could impersonate the owner of a banking account, which is not his own. Due to the fact that neither stationary nor mobile end user devices hosting banking applications or other security-sensitive applications can be considered secure or trustworthy under any circumstances, it is absolutely necessary to use external and tamper-proof devices, in order to secure electronic transactions.

Empelor´s innovative security device complies with the requirements of the Secoder-2 Standard issued by the “Deutsche Kreditwirtschaft” for online-banking, therefore being at least a class-3 smartcard reader. Its evaluation and mass production are being prepared. The product will be available in 2013. It features a multi-purpose NFC-chip, and the additional Bluetooth interface provides the possibility for its use together with all iOS-devices (iPhone, iPad, Mac). “Our German Secoder-2-Standard for secure online banking is finally becoming mobile”, says Thomas Krebs, managing director of SIZ GmbH.

“We are glad that NFC is becoming a standard for mobile end user devices, and we would like to use it for the enhancement of security and trustworthiness. Therefore, we are offering the possibility to apply electronic signatures outside and independently of those nice but dangerous mobile devices”, explains Dr. Paschalis Papagrigoriou, Executive Director of EMPELOR GmbH. “Europe needs stabilizing contributions in the field of mobile security, and we are willing to provide our part with proven German security technology and legendary Swiss precision.”

EMPELOR GmbH brings with it a profound and long-time experience in the ICT markets and has proven its capability to develop successful products and solutions which result in higher levels of security and ease-of-use for mobile communication devices. When it comes to deciding how to make highly efficient and future-proof use of a full spectrum of mobile communication, EMPELOR GmbH with its comprehensive service portfolio is the firm to talk to. Enabling to maximize benefits from established ways of mobile communication is one of EMPELOR”s greatest assets. We do this by optimizing and securing a solid framework which will serve as a foundation for evolutionary mobile communication to be fine-tuned into a customized networking platform.

AR House Awards 2012: Laufen sponsors excellent house architecture

Having met with a very positive response for sponsoring the AR House Awards last year, Swiss bathroom specialist Laufen again sponsors prize of over 10,000 British pounds for the design of a private house. This years overall winner is John Lin, with a housing project in Shaanxi Province, China. The award ceremony and exhibition opening took place in London on 26 June.

The AR House Awards, which will be awarded for the third time in 2012, wish to promote and strengthen the tradition of private house architecture, which enjoys a unique status both in the history of architecture and in the human culture – from Le Corbusier to Koolhaas, the history of modern architecture can be traced through a series of groundbreaking private houses. Their core function is to provide shelter, a secure roof over one”s head – but they are also objects of desire, the canvas onto which people project their wishes, a playground for architects and a proposal for how we might live in balance with ourselves and the wider planet.

An international jury of Sofia von Ellrichshausen (Chile), Brian MacKay-Lyons (Canada), Peter Salter (UK) and AR editor Catherine Slessor assessed nearly 200 submissions from all over the world regardless of the size, location, budget or age of the project and chose a group of 12 winning projects. The only condition was that the building project must have already been completed. The award ceremony took place on Tuesday 26 June in London and all winning projects will be published in detail in the July edition of Architectural Review. This years overall winner is John Lin, Dept of Architecture, University of Hong Kong for a housing project in the Shaanxi Province, China. The other highly commended projects are situated in Australia, Ireland, Japan and Spain.

Laufen sponsors the prestigious awards for the second time. “Laufen has a strong commitment to innovative architecture, from which we draw a great deal of inspiration”, says Alberto Magrans, Senior Managing Director at Laufen, “and the AR House Awards are a great opportunity to give something back. ” During the last decade, Laufen has designed many products that can be incorporated seamlessly into bathroom architecture and demonstrate a profound understanding of the Swiss company of architectural concepts and the space in itself.

* * *

The AR House Awards are annual awards made by the trade magazine Architectural Review since 2010. The Architectural Review, which was published for the first time in 1896, presents a highly regarded, thoughtful, critical vision of contemporary global architecture.

Online Network for Architects

There is a large number of well-trained architects in Germany. Many of them do have foreign experiences as well and can thus be employed by customers, too.

If you are building a house for which each single detail requires an exact planning, or you are reconstructing or renovating an already existing building: for all such projects an architect is needed. Here the best one is just good enough. But how to find the best one? In former times people were looking in the yellow pages or asking around friends and colleagues. However, such more or less randomly selected architects who were furthermore limited to the regions nearby did not in all cases bring up satisfying results.

German Architects are more than experts, they are visionaries and creative persons as well and able to realize their ideas meticulously and accurately. Architects only possess such a fascinating mixture of skills. Therefore, if customers are looking for inspirations, it is important for them to find the right architect. Customers ask themselves whether the architect understands the project they have in mind, whether he knows how they imagine their future home or whether he can feel the “secret worlds” where their individual way of living is concealed? Here the right chemistry, the harmony between the partners play an important role and are necessary facts for any close cooperation. Real properties are the personal home and of such a treasure that they indeed require an appropriate handling.

The search for qualified experts is nowadays supported by all the possibilities the internet offers. So why attention should be paid to regionally located architects only when modern media show how to find experts on a national basis? Anyplans, graphics or animations can be transmitted within seconds. After customers had a look on them they can – if desired – being optimized as long as necessary and until the customers are to 100 % content with the results. But how to get known with the architects who offer their services? An internet platform specialised exclusively on architects can help. It shows all services offered, further the focus determined by the architects as well as additional helpful references. There is a lot to discover here, not only the services customers are looking for, but experts who they probably might never have found somewhere else.

Architects do quite a lot more than planning and designing buildings. They further work out expertises for buildings as well. This very sensitive field of tasks also requires the employment of an architect, somebody who has a lot of experiences, a person who is competent and realiable. Therefore, many customers have been waiting for such a network where they successfully find the right architects. All professionals published there you can entrust with the creation of your personal home according to your individual desires without hesitation or worries – Contact
