The Stuttgart and Barcelona based architectural practice SOMAA, founded by Hadi A. Tandawardaja and Tobias Bochmann – both graduates from EPFL in Lausanne, realised the new Mensa ‘Triangle’ which is a shared cafeteria between two neighboring schools in downtown Leonberg, a small town in Southwest Germany. Situated between the street and three existing buildings the architecture’s organic shape is based on three circular volumes fusing together to become one undulating form. Like this it creates a cohesive link between the two schools while also designating itself as a central meeting place.

The table football arena, in the recreational area of a Swiss bank

The cafeteria for about 1,000 employees of a Swiss Bank needed a refurbishment.

Gessaga Hindermann architects based their design on the idea that table football isn’t just a good mental distraction while taking a break from work, but also supports team spirit.

The football players can be customised using "Face-Cap", a specially designed head attachment

With three table-soccer tables in place, not only can all of the teams participating in the World Cup in South Africa be selected and interchanged, but pictures of the relevant players can also be stuck on using “Face-Cap”, a specially designed head attachment. The customisable table-football players have been patented. Gessaga Hindermann are now looking for potential manufacturers.

Picnic benches have been used to lend the cafeteria a casual expression for those taking a break from the bank's professional routine

The Stuttgart based practice MGF Architekten realised this new cafeteria at the Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft close to their hometown in Aalen, southwest Germany. The long and slender building offers space for 1200 students and teachers and is characterised by a wooden facade made from 214 vertical planks, which carry the 11,70 m column-free roof and provide a static external sunblind at the same time.
