WSDG’s Club NEO in Basel, Switzerland

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

Article source: Walters Storyk Design Group (WSDG)

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND:  NEO, is a dazzling new club/bar/restaurant located on the ground floor of an upscale high-rise in Zurich’s burgeoning Europaallee Sector.  Although the rapidly gentrifying area is adjacent to the Swiss Railroad Mainstation, the local residents’ chic demographic makes late night clamor particularly objectionable.  Sensitive to potential neighborhood backlash, the venue owners resolved to deflect these latent problems before they became an issue.  Their solution?  Engage Walters-Storyk Design Group-WSDG.

Villa G in Sorengo, Switzerland by SCAPE

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Article source: SCAPE

The G family home in Sorengo, on the edge of Lugano in Ticino, is the category of villa that Palladio-1 put forward as a contrast with the town house.  The site, a long narrow strip of land on a steep slope, is part of a hilly area, bordered on its short sides by a private road and another property.  On the long sides it is fringed by another site being developed and a wood that is legislatively bound.  To enjoy the fine view of the mountains and part of the lake, the ground level must by raised by three metres.

Dual sports hall in Borex-Crassier, Switzerland by Graeme Mann & Patricia Capua Mann architects dipl. epfl fas sia

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Article source: Graeme Mann & Patricia Capua Mann architects dipl. epfl fas sia

The expansion of the existing sports hall is the result of a competition and left little margin of freedom because of a limited perimeter. Due to its position, the new extension reinforces the western boundary with the countryside and takes advantage of the break in terrain in order to reduce the impact of volume on the site. The quest for continuity with the existing building dictates the rules in terms of extension volume. The “fusional” approach adopted towards the existing structure allows to define a single entrance for the three sports halls.

Neubau höhere Fachschule für Gesundheit in Luzern, Switzerland by Maier Hess Architekten GmbH

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

Article source: Maier Hess Architekten GmbH

The project seeks to initiate a pattern clearly identifying the hospital campus on Spitalstrasse. With already two buildings of about 35m height, adding a third one makes the pattern evident. An important benefit of the slightly higher than average structure is the – in our eyes very necessary – casualness of the surrounding space, that so could become more convenient and less tight.

House with one wall in Zurich, Switzerland by Christian Kerez Zürich AG

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Article source: Christian Kerez Zürich AG 

A two-family house is a building with a wall that divides it into two halves. The dividing wall is the only wall in the entire house. It cannot be crossed anywhere. It has to fulfill functions conventionally assigned to several architectural elements. It is the load bearing structure and the installation core, its folds define all of the rooms and it determines how the view from the entirely glazed building is divided between the two living units. The simplicity of the concept, the reduction of the architecture to a single element, creates substantial dependence and, in turn, makes the building very complex. It is only through that dependence that the wall acquires a compelling and cogent character although, in itself, it can follow any chosen course.
