AUDEMARS PIGUET BUILDS THE FUTURE WITH TWO NEW MODULAR BUILDINGS

AUDEMARS PIGUET BUILDS THE FUTURE WITH TWO NEW MODULAR BUILDINGS

Le Brassus, November 9, 2021 – Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer Audemars Piguet invests in the future with two contemporary and modular production sites able to adapt to the company’s evolving needs. While the Manufacture des Saignoles recently welcomed its employees in Le Locle after three years of construction work, Audemars Piguet just laid the first stone of its new building, named the “Arc”, adjacent to the Manufacture des Forges in Le Brassus. These two large-scale architectural projects embody Audemars Piguet’s sustainable approach and work culture requiring ever more flexibility and modularity. The two buildings also highlight the brand’s dedication to innovative architectures both integrated into and respectful of their environment.

A CUTTING-EDGE ARCHITECTURE INTEGRATED INTO THE SURROUNDING ENVIRONMENT
Situated in Le Locle, the Manufacture des Saignoles hosts the workshops of Audemars Piguet Le Locle – previously known as Renaud & Papi – which specialises in complicated watch mechanisms. The new manufacturing site, whose construction work started in 2018 and ended in the spring 2021, consists of a 10,400 square-metre one-storey building spread on several split levels that have been adapted to the topography and to suit industrial flows. The new building seamlessly integrates the relief of the valley and draws inspiration from the surrounding meadows, boglands and forests. Conceived by the Swiss architect office Kuník de Morsier, it combines employees’ well-being and comfort, while giving prominence to natural light and new technologies. The building features large bay windows made of SageGlass®, a cost and energy-efficient electrochromic glass that tints automatically depending on natural light. In addition to filling each workshop with light, this type of glass ensures thermal regulation all year long and offers full view of the surrounding landscape. This “light architecture” has been developed in collaboration with Marilyne Andersen, Professor of Sustainable Construction Techniques at EPFL, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne. Her expertise in natural-light well-being was utilised to develop workspaces responding to the specific needs of each occupation.

In Le Brassus, the construction of the Arc, conceived by Swiss office De Giuli & Portier Architectes, has been entrusted to Steiner SA. This new U-shaped building will spread on a surface of 17,000 square metres divided between 3 floors and a basement where the technical rooms are located. In addition, the Arc will be connected to the current Manufacture des Forges.

Together, the two buildings will reunite under one roof all of Audemars Piguet’s industrial sites currently spread across the Vallée de Joux. Construction work started in the spring of 2021 and is planned to finish in 2025. Envisioned as an evolving project, the building allows long-term flexibility thanks to its modular layout and anticipates the company’s future needs. At the leading edge of technology, the Arc also privileges daylight thanks to electrochromic SageGlass® windows. This new construction aligns with Audemars Piguet’s commitment to promoting an architecture that is both avant-garde and respectful of its environment.
“Born in Le Brassus, raised around the world.”

The Backcountry Hut Company – BHC Modular Cabins

BHC Modular Cabins

Ahora puede crear su propia cabina modular con un brillante kit de ensamblaje prefabricado de The Backcountry Hut Company  (BHC). Sus casas prefabricadas modulares son una de las mejores opciones para los propietarios de bricolaje que hemos visto, sus pequeñas y atractivas viviendas vienen en múltiples configuraciones y tamaños, y pueden funcionar dentro o fuera de la red. Se dice que las cabañas se ensamblan “como los muebles de Ikea” y se entregan en forma de paquete plano en camión (o helicóptero si elige un lugar muy rural).
Una vez entregado, se puede armar fácilmente levantando las paredes prefabricadas y los paneles del techo en su lugar utilizando un simple sistema de polea y cabrestante. Dado que son modulares, también se pueden combinar varios paquetes para aumentar el área del piso, agregar dormitorios, etc. Estas escapadas sostenibles fuera de la red están diseñadas para que vivir en el desierto sea muy fácil para aquellos que desean reducir su huella.

Empezando

Nuestro sistema prefabricado permite un rápido proceso de construcción de semanas en lugar de meses. Backcountry Hut Company ofrece soporte durante todo el proceso, comenzando con servicios de diseño previo para trabajar con los clientes para evaluar la viabilidad del proyecto. Estos pasos preliminares son importantes para garantizar el éxito del proyecto antes del inicio de la construcción. El proceso general puede demorar entre 6 y 12 meses desde la planificación hasta el final, según la complejidad del proyecto. Hay tres fases en un proyecto:

The Backcountry Hut Company se fundó en 2015 con el sueño compartido de crear una estructura recreativa simple que pudiera instalarse fácilmente en prácticamente cualquier ubicación remota.

Nuestros fundadores, Wilson Edgar y Michael Leckie, no son ajenos a la aventura y lo salvaje desconocido. Nacidos al este de las Montañas Rocosas, cada uno emigró hacia el oeste por diferentes caminos, siguiendo las estaciones y persiguiendo aventuras en las montañas y a lo largo de la costa. La experiencia de Wilson con la comunidad al aire libre en el noroeste del Pacífico y los antecedentes de Michael en la creación de la galardonada arquitectura modernista condujeron al desarrollo del primer prototipo de Backcountry Huts, con el objetivo de crear un refugio modular prefabricado que combinara una utilidad práctica y una estética minimalista. A medida que avanzaba el desarrollo, el equipo contactó a Cyrill Werlen, con sede en la isla de Vancouver, un maestro constructor originario de Suiza, quien aportó su aprecio por la construcción de madera de calidad y el concepto de autoensamblaje al proyecto.

Trabajando a través de los elementos, tanto material como naturalmente, dándose cuenta del impacto de cada detalle individual en el conjunto colectivo, nuestro equipo ha desarrollado, probado y construido durante cinco años de aventura para ofrecerle nuestra primera colección.
