Vadeggio-Cassarate Gallery in Lugano, Switzerland by Cino Zucchi Architetti

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Article source: Cino Zucchi Architetti

Tunnels are “wounds” inflicted on geology to facilitate human movements. Their history is ancient, glorious and gory, but today techniques have been refined to the point of making the excavation similar to endoscopic surgery.

MMR in Chalais, Switzerland by Archi7

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Article source: Archi7

The project is inscribed within the urban tissue of Réchy. It contributes for the densification of the village, emphasizes the street front defined by its neighboring existing buildings and re-enforces the rural character of the site. Its compact volume, which scarcely uses land surface, restricts its visual impact.

Umwelt Arena in Spreitenbach, Switzerland by Rene Schmid Architekten

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Article source: Rene Schmid Architekten

Building 

Aesthetics and ecology converge in the architecture of the Umwelt Arena. A striking architectural feature of the Umwelt Arena is the crystalline roof structure with the photovoltaic system integrated into the building. This is intentional design. The large hall (arena) forms the centrepiece and conveys an open and inviting atmosphere. Solar heat is used to cool the Umwelt Arena in summer and heat it in winter. This is done by means of a distribution network (TABS) in the concrete floors and an earth tube system beneath the base plate of the bottom parking level. Cold water circulates through the network of pipes in summer, hot water in winter.

2Verandas in Zürich, Switzerland by Gus Wüstemann

Friday, October 19th, 2012

Article source: Gus Wüstemann

This is a house for a young South African family in Erlenbach, just outside Zurich along the lake.The plot is in a suburban context and therefor pretty dense with family homes, typical for the area. The site is on a slope, where on top there are beautiful views to the lake with evening sun and at the lower part there is a group of smaller family houses.
The clients asked us for a solution for a house that made most of the big plot, wanting a view, but not end up with a house on top of the hill and a rest of a garden down below.
