Winds of change – turning a parking garage into a biking garage. Re-use of a carparking garage at the main station of Karlsruhe, Germany, into a garage for biking commuters. The Area south of the main station of Karlsruhe has been abandoned for many years now. In the early nineties, Rem Koolhaas had the commission for his first mayor building, the to-be-internationally-renowned ZKM, a museum for digital art and media. But, after years of discussing and arguing, the city of Karlsruhe pulled back from the project and opened the ZKM at another spot – without Rem. For the past 25 years, the area was reserved for cars and busses, adding the needed infrastructure for individuals coming to the main station.

The benefits of prefabrication are by now well-documented: prefabricated construction is cheaper, faster, better for the environment, and more consistent than traditional forms of architectural construction. At the same time, it can be used for a wide range of unique designs, calculated to meet a client’s specific needs. To take advantage of these many benefits, however, the prefabrication systems and products themselves must meet a certain standard of quality and flexibility.

Below, we consider five architectural projects using custom glass windows and doors by Western Window Systems, each designed to maximize utility for prefabricated and modular construction logics. Beyond their suitability for prefabricated construction, these products also maximize views, aesthetics, and functionality, blurring the line between indoor and outdoor living.

The project deals with the reconstruction of the rectory from the 16th century (2nd phase unfinished) and the design of the social hall (1st phase completed) of the Parish Center of the Roman Catholic Church in Lidečko. Construction modifications respond to the relocation of functions within the building and adapt their availability to best suit the new requirements. The community hall conceptually closes the plot, connects its parts, and creates a space for outdoor activities. Symbolism in the concept of architecture as a process underlines the meaning and purpose of the building.
