New logo for Bez+Kock Architekten

The Stuttgart office for visual communication collect has designed our new logo. Based on the previous logo, a simplification of the existing contour and a reduction to only one color was created.

The new logo is reminiscent of the old one, but at the same time presents itself as a clearly new form. We are happy about the new appearance, which now determines our corporate design.

3rd prize in the competition Community Center in Olpe

We are pleased that our competition design for the new building of the community center in Olpe was awarded 3rd prize. The long rectangular figure of the three-story house follows the orientation of the railroad station and the former railway line and thus refers to the history of the place. The historical station building houses the rooms of the city museum. It is at the same time itself an important exhibit as part of the collective memory of the inhabitants of Olpe.

"All in all, a structural ensemble is formed that does justice to the task and is in an exciting dialogue between old and new," was the jury's verdict.
