The firm works on architecture and interior projects, products and design. The firm believes that the future is in collaboration and in trying to connect to people outside our industry.

Here is a list of 10 projects by Chris and Fei Precht – 

1. The Farmhouse

The main concept of the building was to reconnect the city dwellers with agriculture and also to promote life with more sustainable living.
Ar. Precht has designed a completely prefabricated modular building consisting of cross-laminated timber with electrical and plumbing finishing in the inner layer. The middle layer consists of structure and insulation while the outer layer contains each unit’s gardening elements and water supply.

2. The Toronto Tree Tower

The Toronto tree tower located in Toronto, Canada is an 18-storey residential High Rise modular structure made up of cross-laminated timber (CLT) and features trees and plants growing in its balconies. It also symbolizes an ecological system for wooden high-rises and envisions a new model of sustainable high-rise architecture worldwide.

3. San Shan Bridge

Inspired by the Olympic symbol that consists of 5 interlaced rings of equal dimension, San Shan Bridge is a gateway between the density of the city and undulating river valleys in the north Beijing and symbolizes an inviting gesture for the 2022 Olympic Games.
Just like the Olympic rings, the structure intersects itself in the lowest and highest points to be as slender as possible and connects the two shores of Gui River through a DNA string-like dual helix.

4. Yin and Yang House

Located near the German city of Kassel, the house is designed for a small family for life off-grid, and what makes it special is the concept of yin yang- A Chinese philosopher that describes how seemingly opposing forces can combine to create a balanced and stronger whole. The building’s form comprises two intersecting sections that define the living areas and a dedicated workspace. The unusual roof shape features stepped levels that ascend from the center of the house, evoking the way mountains rise up on either side of the valley. The house transforms itself, according to its surroundings.

5. Tel Aviv Arcades

Tel Aviv is a 116-meter-high structure with facades made of modular archways and terraces and aims to complement the city’s legacy of Bauhaus architecture. It also has alternating setbacks to provide residents with sunny garden terraces or secluded private balconies. The rhythm of the lively plaza, traditional context, and modern architecture has a deep impact on the design of this building.

6. The Myrtle Garden Hotel

It is located on the outskirts of Yinji Xiangyang, China. Nestled on a hillside site within the largest flower garden in Asia, this wooden annular structure is based on the typology of traditional, circular Hakka houses or a fidget spinner, and is designed to provide a soothing harmony between the architecture and its natural environment.

The lower zone is divided into 3 parts—culinarily, relaxation, and business; each represented between one form defining circle and hosts all the public areas. The upper part of the hotel comprises 146 guest rooms and serves the private area. The façade varies in depth depending on the orientation determined to maximize the natural light.

7. Bert

Bert is conceptualized as a treehouse shaped like a trunk of a tree to create something with the functions of a building and emotions of a cartoon character- minion’s one eye. It invites people to experience and discover nature and architecture through a child’s perspective. To give the interiors cave-like atmosphere and coziness, they have dark fabric inside with large glass openings. The facades have leaf-like shingles in various shades of brown which gives it a natural background. The most interesting fact about Bert is that, even if it was designed as a tiny home, it is also possible to arrange the modules in lager configurations.

8. The Cole Bow

Cola bow is a public art installation designed for the 2nd Beijing university creation Expo, which turns into the Beijing Design Week. More than 17,000 plastic bottles have been braided together to give this installation the shape of the swing of Coca-Cola’s logo. Since plastics can last for more than 450 years, this installation creates awareness on recycling the plastics by taking trash and turning it into the shelter.

9. THE FLEXIBLE BAUHAUS

It is located near the active areas of Dessau. Resting on the description of Bauhaus by Walter Gropius, the New Bauhaus Museum features a transformable design with two rotating platforms that can open up and act as an invitation for people to enter the park and the museum in the day and close at night. This structure is a combination of flexibility, clear geometry, and technological elements. It is also receptive to the seasonal changes and can adjust to varying occupancy loads throughout the year.

10. BAMBOO CITY

Bamboo city is a sustainable way of construction that will help in reducing the carbon footprint of major cities like Beijing. The use of natural materials like bamboo which can generate 35% more oxygen than other trees while absorbing the same amount of carbon dioxide is the vital instrument as it is 2 to 3 times stronger than steel of the same weight. Interlocking vertical and horizontal bamboo rods form the foundation of the structure’s concept.
