Within the framework of an architecture seminar at Harvard University, different designs for the construction of a safe, long-lasting, and architecturally appealing bivouac in the high alpine terrain emerged. In cooperation with OFIS architects and AKT II Rieder, supported the students in the design and realisation of the shelter at 2,118 meters above sea level in the Slovenian Alps. The envelope of the exposed shelter was created with öko skin glassfibre reinforced concrete.
Named Cabin Thunder Top, the triangular building is an extension of an existing log cabin owned by a family at the edge of the Hardangervidda mountain plateau.  It is described by Gartnerfuglen Arkitekter as "a man-made peak", intended to blend in with its setting over time as dwarf birch and heather to grow over it.
Together with the Green Dot and the Green Building Group, Rieder realised a “Sustainable Museum” with an öko skin facade at dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel.

The luxury hotel with its pixelated facade offers the theatrical backdrop for the history-charged Mount Stephen Club in Montreal. Lemay architects abstracted motifs from the interior of the heritage-protected Canadian landmark and, with the geometric arrangement of concrete skin elements created the perfect background for the new hotel complex that is the Canadian architectural jewel. The Mount Stephen Club, designed by architect William Titus Thomas, is a historic monument of Quebec.

Inspired by the Japanese Wabi Sabi concept of aesthetics and the true beauty of natural raw materials, a texture has been developed that showcases the true material character of concrete and brings it to life in the form of "refined nature". The natural imperfection and irregularity in the appearance of the vintage panel gives the facade a unique appearance and, above all, individuality since no one panel is like another.

Monumental protection & Béton brut

The 3.60 meter long slats, made of formed glassfibre reinforced concrete, serve as permanent sun protection and create creative design accents on the building envelope.
Individual formparts with a U-cross section are used as thin vertical concrete fins to produce a facade with contrasting typologies. Depending on the viewing angle, the facade appears transparent and opaque at the same time, due to the cantilevered concrete fins. The sandstone coloured concrete elements also function as sun protection.
