Blumenegg Pavillon

The object Blumenegg Pavillon is an event space in the midst of the remaining walls of the ruins of Blumenegg Castle. It is to be run by an association as a cultural and leisure centre and used by the surrounding region.
The building, with a floor space of 60 square metres, is intended to accommodate various events and consists of a main room and a small kitchen.
Above the inserted wood volume there is an accessible roof terrace which is supported by the primary steel construction. The new building is positioned on the property in such a way that it is embedded as unobtrusively as possible in the existing ruins.

St Teresa’s School

IF_DO has completed a new sixth form centre at St Teresa’s School, an independent girls’ school in Effingham.
The building comprises two discrete blocks: the teaching block – the larger of the two – contains the classrooms, offices, common room and study room; and a separate block houses the lecture theatre, which is distinct from the other facilities to encourage access to all students.
The two blocks are joined by a covered link which acts as the main entry point and circulation space, and provides a clear visual connection from the Sixth Form Quad to the woodland beyond.
