Newly built double pre-school facility in Wiesendangen, Switzerland by SINGER BAENZIGER ARCHITEKTEN

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

Article source: SINGER BAENZIGER ARCHITEKTEN 

This double pre-school or kindergarten facility and a recently completed gym serve as extensions of the school grounds to the east.

Separated from the surrounding single-family homes, the pre-school building reflects the orientation of the existing school structures. The staggered construction produces an entrance area with plenty of sunlight and a shady and well-protected outside space at the back of the building. The main entrance is covered and slightly set back.

Automobilzentrum AMAG, Dübendorf by Fischer Architekten AG

Friday, September 18th, 2015

Article source: Fischer Architekten AG

The additively organised operational procedures of Switzerland’s largest garage operation are reflected in the building’s elongated structure. It seamlessly integrates itself into the broader context of the resident \”Empa – Materials Science and Technology\” research institute and its large-scale structures – a first step towards the further densification of the Giessen site. In addition, the new building serves as a noise barrier for residential buildings on the southern side against the busy Überlandstrasse.

Restoration – Mythenschloss in Zurich, Switzerland by Fischer Architekten AG

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Article source: Fischer Architekten AG

Competition, Zurich 2014; 3rd place: The almost-lakeside Mythenschloss is located as an urban component within a mixture of stone, neoclassical buildings and modern glass cubes. Although its location marks an interface between the city square and the water, the structure is identical on both sides – the Mythenquais and Alfred-Escher-Strasse. The concept aims to correct this lack of differentiation and have differentiated sides.

Fire department in Pratteln, Switzerland by Maaars Architektur Visualisierungen

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

Article source: Maaars Architektur Visualisierungen

Developed after winning an architectural competition in 2010, the new fire department in Pratteln was completed in October 2013, after nearly one year of construction. The flat new building is located in the town’s western periphery, where residential and commercial areas overlap. Like the appropriate component, the latest addition to this loose network of heterogenous blocks integrates well into the surrounding greenery. The simple but efficient internal organization sets the tone for its outward appearance.
