WELCOME

Let us fill in this questionnaire with you. 1. I want to build a very special house for me. Yes No 2. Well, actually it needs to have a bit more space than a “house”…a Villa…or even a mansion. Yes No 3. I want it to represent me, my style, my values, my success. Yes No 4. And…I definitely want it to be something people love to look at, even in 30 years. Yes No 5. It should be environmentally friendly, of course. Yes No 6. And equipped with top-notch technology too. Yes No 7. And, by the way, I have no time to pick tiles and furniture. So I want you to present me an all-in concept….at the Singapore-airport. Exactly! Well, you answered all the questions with “yes”, so its time now to get in contact with us.

And that too, if wished

Its over when the fat lady sings. Not with us. After your iconic estate is erected and you moved in, you will probably hardly be at (that) home. So you can`t mow the lawn (just kidding). Hence, we will arrange for you for example: A garden. Which pleases your eyes. And those of your friends. Any time. A security system. Which prevents your family from waking you up in your hotel room at 4 am. A 24/7 contact. Who helps you with anything house-related (e. g. empty humidor) A pet-service. We walk your….Ferrari. That goes on the house. And, Flexibility. Let`s talk about that.

What we have for you

Time. We give you the time that you don’t have. Wherever you want us to. Passion. For very cool estates. We certainly share that with you. Experience. 50 + man-years in architecture and real estate development. Crazy ideas. You might like that. Efficient solutions. „Good” must not always be expensive. Not always.

And we are?

Two friends, Cristian Orus and Kurt Herpel, who are designing, developing and building dream houses – and houses for people with a dream – since more than 10 years.
Cristian Orus Kurt Herpel
Cristian, the architect, is a Pratt-University graduate who was architecturally socialized in Miami, FL. He speaks German, English and Spanish fluently. He is married and has two lovely girls. He is not much into sports, he loves to eat.
Kurt, the developer, is a Emory-University graduate and held several senior Management-positions in the pharmaceutical industry, before he found his calling in real estate development more than 10 years ago. He speaks German and English fluently. He is married and has four wild children. He is much into sports and….cigars.
And if we meet with you at the Singapore airport to discuss the tiles, is there anyone working back home? Of course. That would be Sepp, Bea, Marlene, Peter, Richie, Edgar, Reto, Michi, another Sepp, Julia and two Waltis. Plus the others, who are looking forward to working with you/us.

Enough reading, let`s get to work. We are waiting for your call under: Kurt: +41 79 874 13 22, or Cristian: +41 78 936 55 20 Please leave a message in case. We will get back to you within one hour (unless we are on the plane to Singapore..).

And this is an option, if you decide to have a separate apartment for all your children

A little bit of theory – firmitas – utilitas - venustas

What Makes a Good Building? Author: Inge Beckel Published on Jan 13, 2014 Prizes, awards, rankings. Tributes, scathing reviews, recommendations. 'Likes', rankings and achieved (or missed) targets for visitor numbers. Evaluations are commonplace in architecture like anything else. So what is it, you may ask, that makes a good building, that makes an award-winner? After looking for ways to create a "happy city" in eMagazin #51/13, Swiss-Architects editor Inge Beckel searches for small clues leading to a "good building." The Building The oldest known original work of architectural theory in our culture is considered to be the Ten Books on Architecture by Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, better known simply as Vitruvius. He lived in the first century B.C. and was a citizen of the Roman Empire. The transcript of these instructive treatises is thought to date from the ninth century A.D. Vitruvius named three primary criteria of good architecture: firmitas, utilitas and venustas – durability, convenience and beauty. A structure should be well built and stable; it also has to suit the users’ needs, and finally it should be beautiful. It is interesting to note that Vitruvius gave equal weight to all three criteria: none is more important than the others – in other words: a good structure meets the demands of strength or stability, of functionality or usefulness, and of beauty.
