Tropical skyscraper teaming with life, abundant water, air and light
Oasia Hotel, Singapore: upbeat sustainability with style
Singapore is a densely populated city-state, in which land is scarce. This makes space-saving, high-rise buildings a bare necessity. New standards in the sea of buildings in Singapore’s central business district are set by the Oasia Hotel, hailing from the hotel group of the same name and which was completed in 2016. In contrast to conventional high-rise towers, which are hermetically sealed and air-conditioned, this building, designed by the local WOHA office, impressively combines nature and architecture, both inside and out. The various pools adorning the building also reflect these high standards. As a part of the whole design concept they have been fashioned by the Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola, who lives in Milan and operates her internationally renowned studio there. more more...

Innovative method offers new potentials for specialized craftsmen and dealers
DryTile revolutionizes the laying of ceramic floor tiles
Time is a very valuable resource - also and especially in the building industry. That is why one has been thinking about the possibility of combining the excellent properties of ceramic tiles with other advantages such as time saving or simple removal again and again. An innovation of this type is DryTile of AGROB BUCHTAL: as the name already implies, the laying is carried out “dry“ without tile adhesive. The system permits an up to 8 times faster laying (basic information: see box on the last page). DryTile is not intended to replace the conventional laying, but to complement it and to open up new areas of application in which ceramic tiles not necessarily have been an option for the decision-makers until now. This offers new potentials for open-minded specialized craftsmen and dealers. more more...

International Creativity Competition for Ceramic Tiles
2017 Tile Award from Agrob Buchtal: Form Follows Fun
The TILE AWARD is aimed at young (interior) architects and is a creativity competition organised by the architectural ceramics specialist AGROB BUCHTAL. The main focus of this competition is to make the most of the possible designs of ceramic tiles through experimentation. The feedback from the première in 2010 was so tremendous that the competition was continued in 2012 and 2014 and was held for the fourth time in 2017. The winners were crowned during the first half of 2018 and their designs built and photographed in their original size. more more...

Jaeggi Architekten: enhancing and refining existing room qualities
Successful combination of existing and new wellness area in Swiss 4-star Superior Hotel
The Eden Spiez, a hotel rich in tradition which had been established already in 1903, was re-opened in 2006 after complete reconstruction. In 2010, a conference centre with parking garage was added, and by the end of 2017, it was transformed into a “Wellness and Enjoyment Hotel”. The basis for this was a comprehensive interior design concept developed by Jaeggi Architekten for a combination of the existing wellness area (inclusive of the panorama indoor swimming pool) with the new facilities. For this, the plans of the office J. Höhn + Partner from Thun provided a two-storey extension adjoining the existing indoor swimming pool. more more...

DOMOTEX trade fair (January 12-15, 2018), Hannover / Germany
Innovative installation method opens up new potentials


DryTile revolutionises the installation of ceramic tiles
Time is a very valuable resource – in life in general but also in construction. Which is why there are regular considerations as to how the outstanding characteristics displayed by ceramic tiles can be combined with additional advantages such as savings in time or easy reversibility. The latest such innovation is DryTile by AGROB BUCHTAL. As the name implies, it entails “dry” installation without tile adhesive. The system permits installation which is up to 8 times faster than traditional methods and opens up numerous technical advantages, whereby the final result is just as aesthetically pleasing as a “normal” ceramic floor covering. more more...

Industrial Style reinterpreted
District: faceted* tiles of Agrob Buchtal
The collection District was inspired by the typical tile claddings of the Metro stations in big cities such as Paris or London. The special features of this so-called “Metro tile” are glossy glazes and bevelled edges on all sides in order to create reflections in this way, which improved the poor lighting conditions in most of the underground stations at that time. This filigree and yet distinctive type of tiles has always been and still is very popular among Industrial Style enthusiasts. Agrob Buchtal now interprets this subject in a contemporary manner with modern formats and colours. The new wall tile series has been developed for expressive wall designs in public areas. Its characteristics: clear, rectangular and faceted*. more more...

FLIESEN & PLATTEN - Readers’ vote of the products of the year 2017
Agrob Buchtal succeeds in defending title
Since 2011, FLIESEN & PLATTEN, the German trade journal with the highest circulation, has called upon its readers to vote for the products of the year at regular intervals. In the category of tiles, the brand Agrob Buchtal ranked in second place at that time with the series XENO, behind the series HOMING of the sister brand Jasba, which thus was the first winner at all.

Agrob Buchtal then participated again in the vote for the product of the year 2014 and straightaway took first place with the series TWIN. After a pause in 2015 without participation, the company succeeded in winning the vote again with the series QUARZIT as product of the year 2016.

This impressive success story now has been seamlessly continued by the successful “title defence“. At the vote of the products of the year 2017, the Agrob Buchtal series SAVONA introduced in the same year was the winner by a significant margin. more more...

New Belgrade Plaza Complex, Coventry
Earthy and airy
Rachel Haugh, one of the name-givers of SimpsonHaugh and Partners Group LLP (Manchester/London), has noted that there are two vital requirements for the design of a high-rise. One is to ensure it is well-connected on street level, and the other that it adds something to the skyline. This might be true in general, but in the case of the 20-storey complex “Belgrade Plaza” in Coventry, it is equally important what happens in between the bottom and the top. more more...

Brunnenstraße Waterworks, Homburg/Saar
Functional buildings can also be aesthetically pleasing ...
(Drinking) water is the source of all life and therefore the most important “food” of all, in the truest sense of the word. It is rightly subject to strict control and used several times a day by each and every one of us. Per capita consumption in German households is more than 120 litres a day, whereby Germany is surely one of the most privileged countries in the world in terms of water quality and supply. A basic prerequisite for this is a corresponding infrastructure based on the individual waterworks: these are the quiet heroes of everyday life, providing 24/7 service. It is in the nature of things that they primarily involve functional purpose-built buildings. The fact that this can be combined with demands on design is confirmed by a waterworks facility in Homburg/Saar in the appropriately named Brunnenstraße (Well Street), originally built in the 1950s. Due to growing demand, an extension became necessary whose stringent design and unpretentious reservation are thoroughly convincing. more more...
