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.

Renovation and Extension of the Zurich Zoo Foyer by L3P Architekten

Saturday, November 1st, 2014

Article source: L3P Architekten

The Zurich Zoo, situated on Zurichberg overlooking Zurich, is one of the most visited sights in Zurich. Due to the continual growing number of visitors, the entrance foyer was re-structured and adapted to current needs. In this process, the need to react subtly to the standing foyer, an excellent project from Dürig Architects in 1999, was applied. A complex, merged facility, embracing diverse areas such as the forecourt, counters, visitors’ centre, Zoo Shop, Zoo Café, volunteers’ centre and also including the station for the new zoo tram was realized in an all-out operation.

Hirslanden Heart Clinic in Zurich, Switzerland by Dost Architecture

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Article source: Dost Architecture 

Dost Architecture, a leading Swiss architectural firm with an ongoing concern for acoustics, was retained to develop a workflow and interior design concept to provide the expanding Hirslanden Heart Clinic with uncompromised functionality while also reflecting the organization’s intrinsic values.  To ensure optimal acoustics and speech intelligibility for the new clinic, Dost engaged Walters-Storyk Design Group, global acoustics/architectural specialists, to study all aspects of the clinic’s room and structural acoustics – the latter being critical due to doctor-to-patient conversation privacy issues. A range of eight acoustical room treatments was developed based on WSDG findings. The clinic’s rooms were individually analyzed, and a matrix was created to determine which application would most benefit each room.

Gottshalden in zurich, Switzerland by Rossetti + Wyss Architekten

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

Article source: Rossetti + Wyss Architekten 

The house in Gottshalden is located on a plateau over the Lake Zurich. It is set in green surroundings with a high quality of life, dominated by agriculturaluse. The volume exhibits a unified design, with a reduced, sharp-angled timber facade. The furniture-like wooden skin defines both walls and rooftops, covering the exterior in a single material, unbroken. The various geometries lend the structure plasticity, while the windows flush with the exterior, are emphasized with lighter-colored reveals.
