While walking through the Swiss suburban landscape, one would typically encounter a rather low-density mix of residential pavilions, four storey ho
uses, classical villas, camping areas and Swiss-style „high-rise“ buildings. The neighbourhoods of today’s urban fabric are neither dense nor really green, but rather the diverse typologies that compose them demonstrate how different these housing types react to their outside spaces, to their surrounding views and to the materials used. Unfortunately, this typological reflection often stops at the boundaries of each individual plot, ignoring the wider urban context.
