AWEL Workshop in Andelfingen, Switzerland by Rossetti + Wyss architects

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

Article source: Rossetti + Wyss architects

The Canton of Zurich adds a new building to its waterways engineering operations center to house vehicles and machines that serves at the same time as a workshop for carrying out detail work. The concept for the building draws on traditional agricultural construction while at the same time, so to speak, realizing a childhood dream: stacking up and layering simple wooden blocks to build an elementary structure. The workshop is made up of 36 solid wood elements. Every single element has its own structural effect, protecting the space and forming part of the whole. Everything that is necessary is there, with nothing superfluous added. The solid timber support structure is visible both inside and out. Restraint is the creative byword here. But the simplicity is anything but ordinary.

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.

New mechanics hall in Lausanne, Switzerland by Dominique Perrault Architecte

Saturday, May 28th, 2016

Article source: Dominique Perrault Architecte

The ME building, dedicated to the mechanical engineering department, was built by the Zweifel + Stricker + Associates team in the early 70s, during the first phase of development of the campus. Its spatial organization bears testament to the tenets of the original master plan: the separation of cars and pedestrians into two different flows, as per Modern Movement in architecture principles, means that access to the building happens on multiple levels. The building has a three-dimensional grid (23’-7” length by 12’-9” height) which divides its space in a controlled way, regardless of type or purpose. The original master plan was revised several times over the ensuing decades, to question some of the initial projections, and to adjust it to inevitable evolutions such as a growing number of visitors and new usages. Moreover, the remarkable design of the Rolex Learning Center – which sits in the vicinity of the mechanics hall – leaves room for multiple architectural styles, allowing for the identity of the school to be renewed and for the campus itself to become a whole new district in the greater Lausanne metropolis.

Chilestieg in Rümlang, Switzerland by Baumschlager eberle

Sunday, May 8th, 2016

Article source: Baumschlager eberle

An extensive stock of mature trees forms a green envelope around the land and buildings at Chilestieg in Rümlang. The 6,500 square-metre site is bounded to the north by Chilestieg and to the east by Glatttalstraße. The low-density residential development baumschlager eberle have planned here reveals a sensitive response to the texture and arrangement of the surroundings. The location and orientation of the three buildings with their three or four storeys take due account of the structures in the vicinity. The buildings are carefully embedded in the gentle, flowing landscape around the site, and the generous spacing between them underlines the park-like character of the development.

Pensiun Laresch in Grisons, Switzerland by Architekten Gemeinschaft 4 AG

Sunday, April 3rd, 2016

Article source: Architekten Gemeinschaft 4 AG

The village of Mathon is situated in the Beverin Nature Park whith its unique, wild landscape, thus creating a special challenge for the architecture. The architects’ task was to design a very functional “guest house” with strong attention to detail, while maintaining respectful interaction with the environment. The building was set without a basement directly on the already existing foundation and aligned in such a way that every room had superb views of the Alps. To obtain maximum living space, the planning incorporated a minimal traffic area. The half a meter thick masonry did not require additional insulation and, together with the regional materials, provides for sustainable construction, while also ensuring a pleasant room climate. Thanks also to the warmth of the hosts, the house is a wonderful place to refuel and enjoy.
