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.

Footbridge Crossing L’Areuse in Neuchatel, Switzerland by GD Architectes FAS SIA

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Article source: Geninasca Delefortrie Architectes FAS SIA

When a place speaks, the most constructive reaction is to listen to it rather than to converse with it. The crossing of the Areuse at a precise point of the gauge was the demand.

The answer is this footbridge, an organic structure, ensuring a better echo with the site and the river. The objective power of this artefact holds in its ability the power to blend in perfectly with the site and get clearly noticed. There is no submission to the place but just respect.

St. Josef Parish Centre in Zurich, Switzerland by Frei + Saarinen Architekten

Friday, October 12th, 2012

Article source: Frei + Saarinen Architekten

Frei + Saarinen Architects converted a 100-years-old Parish Centre in Zurich and implanted a new wooden lobby with a unique atmosphere that is generated by a clash of „trendy“ facetted geometries and an old fashioned way of detailing. The geometry of the new lobby is the consequence of stretching the formerly enclosed space towards the facades and respecting the given bearing structure. A new rooflight accentuates the entrance to the hall (see plan). Additionally this vertical element  „slows down“ the dynamic character of the lobby. Aditionally,  a new appartment for the priest was designed at the top level. Since a part of the former bigger terrace was covered by a roof-extension, a portion of the tilted roof became a tilted interior wall. Thereby a new pentagonal room with four tilted walls is generated – the priest’s new „tilted“ living room.

Feldbalz House in Zürich, Switzerland by Gus Wustemann Architects

Monday, September 17th, 2012

Article source: Gus Wüstemann Architects

This project is not a house but a family sculpture looking for freedom and social interaction. The created sculpture contains family life, where everybody meets and circulates on the first floor, while providing a great view over the lake of Zurich.

This sculpture separates the parents’ area, which is on top of the shape and the children’s area, which lies underneath. The whole construction rests on the volume of the fireplace; an element of content and emotion.

Glacier in Lucerne, Switzerland by Gus Wustemann Architects

Sunday, September 16th, 2012

Article source: Gus Wüstemann Architects

The project was to design a new generous loft in the attic of the house at loewengraben 13 in the old town of Lucerne, Switzerland. the raw interior work was already finished. the challenge of the situation; a rather dark space, as there were only small roof windows, a skylight and a terrace with a great view on the top floor. the terrace was accessed by small stairs and the gallery floor blocked the light from entering the flat. the shape of the original space was a rectangle with the two long hard walls squashing the space.

Haus Ginkgo in Oberwil, Switzerland by on3 architekten

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Article source: on3 architekten

The house is located in the center of Oberwil, in the north of Switzerland. The neighborhood is designed by older one family houses and small stores. Due to ist geometry, the house offers an unconventional floor plan with comfort, flexibility and space to move. As the rooms are linked and correspondent to each other, they are ideal for family life with space for individual creativity.
The open kitchen and the living room, which are on the same level as the terrace in the garden, form one area. A large glass facade is the only separation between the interior and the external space. The two upper floors offer private rooms, separated by sliding doors. The galleria in the attic gives a wonderful view over the roofs of Oberwil and completes the concept of the flexible and open floor plans. The center of the house is a stair made of exposed concrete. It connects the house in the vertical. The robust and massive concrete sets a contrast to the fine, light white oak parquet floor.

Location: Oberwil, Switzerland

A special feature of the house is the frame-less, partly room-high glazing.Thematically,they are used in every room and open the house to the external space. Thus, the rooms receive a generous, light and friendly atmosphere.

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.

Article source: Giorla & Trautmann Architectes

The villa is built above Sion on gently sloping south-facing land, overlooking the Rhone Valley. The house is organized on two levels.
