Housing development Nuerensdorf Zurich, Switzerland

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Article source: kit architects in collaboration with schibliholenstein architekten

The new residential development on the outskirts of the town Nuerensdorf consists of six buildings, which occupy the land equally. The loose alternating arrangement allows multiple connections to the open countryside in the north and to the garden framed single and multifamily dwellings in the immediate neighborhood. With their windmill-like floor plan the buildings fit the scale of the existing context. A seven and a four unit house are the two basic types, both combining duplexes with detached character, ground floor apartments and penthouses. All dwellings are dual aspects with private outdoor spaces along the recessed corners – on ground floor level as perches followed by private gardens, on first floor level as loggias and on the attic floor as spacious terraces. The individual units are organized by an entrance zone with compactly arranged adjoining rooms, a bedroom zone and an open-plan living-dining area with interesting cross and external references.

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.

Avenue de France Administrative Building in Genève, Switzerland by Group8 Architecture

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

Article source: Group8

A complex site

The “Avenue de France” administrative building is sat on a site which imposes several constraints. It was built on a site bordering the CFF (national) railway lines, limited on its northern end by the Avenue de France and adjacent to a pre-existing building. The site’s topography also imposes varying conditions namely: the railway tracks to be found at the lowest point, the level of the access to the underground parking, the level of the Avenue de France over-passing the railway and the general level of the existing adjacent buildings. It is worth noting that before construction of the building the site had long been considered as ‘unsuitable’ for development.

House extension in Cologny, Switzerland by Andrés Ojeda Architects

Friday, July 6th, 2012

Article source: Andrés Ojeda Architects

Andrés Ojeda architects created this house extension overlooking lake Leman in Geneva. The extension was built to accommodate a young couple within the same plot of an existing mediterranean style villa. The architects built two rectangular volumes to both sides of the back of the house and joined them internally to create a meandering serpent like plan to the new apartment. The new build is accessed by the back of the original house through a pathway and a courtyard, giving privacy to both homes.

House in the March District, Switzerland by Kit Architects

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Article source: Kit Architects

In proposals for sleek country homes and lustrous civic buildings, kit manages to marry cosmopolitan cool with a native sense of thrift. Working with a modestsized parcel, the trick in the scheme was to minimize the footprint. This task was made all the more challenging by the client’s insistence on a four-car garage, as well as the splitlevel structure’s location near the bank of a narrow brook.

Fitness Park Einstein in St Gallen, Switzerland by Damir Masek (designed with FormZ)

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Article source: Damir Masek

The heart of the five story Fitness Park Einstein beats as a hovering water crystal pool, flooded with the light of the overlying atrium. Above the three-story cascade steps of the fitness center floats the transparent and/or translucent basin. This focal point motivates the fitness customers, and tells of a promise, which will redeem. The horizontal, translucent screen under pool’s transparent, acrylic bottom can be used flexibly.
