House with a Tree in Basel, Switzerland by Sauter von Moos

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

Article source: Sauter von Moos

Maintaining the tenderness and charm of the existing house from the 1930’s, our intention was to

(1) gently renovate / restore the existing structure

(2) enlarge the building through a series of micro-scale additions that follow the logic of the existing spatial division into small rooms

(3) entangle the existing, the tree and the new in a joyful composition

(4) improve the house’s energy-balance by modernizing all technical installations using exclusively renewable energies

(5) carefully relate the house to its surroundings, both natural and urban.

Jazz Campus in Basel, Switzerland by BUOL & ZÜND

Saturday, June 4th, 2016

Article source: BUOL & ZÜND 

The idea was to plan a building which is dedicated to jazz. It was a challenge to bring the two disciplines together as jazzmusic works with improvisation and serendipity while architecture seaks to avoid random and tries to plan and fix things to make them persist. The second question was how to integrate a new building into the grown city structure of the old town in Basel. During our research we realized that the plan of the buildings on the site hasn’t changed much during centuries although the buildings themselves were exchanged several times. So we decided to believe in the “architecture-trouvée” and create the building’s volume on the base of the old citymap. The result is a diverse volume with a courtyard in the center.

WSDG’s Club NEO in Basel, Switzerland

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

Article source: Walters Storyk Design Group (WSDG)

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND:  NEO, is a dazzling new club/bar/restaurant located on the ground floor of an upscale high-rise in Zurich’s burgeoning Europaallee Sector.  Although the rapidly gentrifying area is adjacent to the Swiss Railroad Mainstation, the local residents’ chic demographic makes late night clamor particularly objectionable.  Sensitive to potential neighborhood backlash, the venue owners resolved to deflect these latent problems before they became an issue.  Their solution?  Engage Walters-Storyk Design Group-WSDG.

ETH Bale in Basel, Switzerland by KUBOTA & BACHMANN ARCHITECTS GmBH

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

Article source: KUBOTA & BACHMANN ARCHITECTS GmBH

Urban strategy

The new ETH building is conceived as an efficient and flexible architectural device, providing an answer to the multiple aspects shaping its complex environment.

On the one hand, the landscape and the urban quality of the public spaces around the building condition the building’s insertion.  The respect of the historical urban fabric, in particular the Heritage garden in the south facade of the site, is essential as it constitutes an important area of the city urban fabric throughout the centuries. At the same time, all the classed trees in the site will be preserved.

FROZEN TIME CITIZEN IN BASELWORLD

‘Frozen time’ has been presented for a Japanese watch brand CITIZEN in Baselworld which is the largest watch and jewel industry exhibition in the world. In this year, the main exhibition hall has been fully renewed, therefore all the brands are intended to express their next 4 year’s vision. In order to conceive their brand identity almost all the brands has designed a fully new booth for this year’s exhibition. CITIZEN as a Japanese watchmaker took their approach to represent their brand identity differently in this context. Instead of just renewing entire booth for next 4 years, they have reserved a large reception space to be opened and to present an installation for CITIZEN every year as space to evolve and to express their fundamental identity of ‘Challenging sprits’.

Kirchplatz Office + Residence in Basel, Switzerland by Oppenheim Architecture + Design in collaboration with Huesler Architekten

Friday, August 10th, 2012

Article source: Oppenheim Architecture + Design

The design of this adaptive re-use project was born initially out of a design competition initiated by the City of Muttenz/Basel. The design was based on the renovation of an historic farmhouse situated within the historic center core of the city. The original farmhouse was constructed in 1743.  Today the converted farmhouse serves as an office for an architectural design company, provides community meeting space, and serves as a compelling link to a new, adjacent private residence.

Neues Stadt-Casino in Basel, Switzerland by Zaha Hadid Architects

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects
More projects by Zaha Hadid

An L-shaped volume that gives a new identity to the Stadt-Casino, enclosing the existing music hall and connecting it with the adjacent Hans Huber Hall. This homogeneous, plastic volume is differentiated and articulated by bulging and inverting its surface, enclosing ‘foreign bodies’ and hollowing it out to create a generous entrance hall.

The façade of the old music hall and the Hans Huber Hall create the main façade for the Neues Stadt Casino along the Steinenberg. The continuation of the two buildings, highlighted by a cut or slice, allows the front surface of the new building to become cohesive whilst the new volume remains sufficiently distanced from the existing building.
