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.

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.

Lake Houses in Zurich, Switzerland by E2A (designed using AutoCAD)

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Article source: E2A Eckert Eckert Architekten

An existing late classical home (Villa Sonnenhof), marks the slight bend of the Seestrasse as it follows the shores of the lake. Along the villa, the former park stretched to the street above and opened dramatic vistas to the lake. Future densification on this site needed to offer views of the lake equally to all parties, but to avoid seeing their neighbors.

Cocoon in Zurich, Switzerland by Camenzind Evolution

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

Article source: Camenzind Evolution

Cocoon is located in Zurich’s Seefeld district on a beautiful hillside, which enjoys excellent lake and mountain views. The location’s distinctive flair stems from the exceptional park-like setting – a green oasis into which Cocoon snugly nestles. Flanked on three sides by mighty, age-old trees the elliptical structure reads as a freestanding sculptural volume that gracefully spirals up from the park. The stainless steel mesh enveloping the building combines visual privacy with restrained elegance, while establishing a strong and unmistakable presence.

Oberglatt Gymnasium Extension in Zurich, Switzerland by kit

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

Article source: kit

After a fire destroyed the foyer of the gymnasium in Oberglatt, Switzerland, the city council asked for a new extension to the remaining parts of the building. The proposal by kit architects, which took the second prize in the competition, seamlessly connects to the existing structure, through program, space and form. Old and new dissolve into one, giving the building from the 70ties a distinct new identity. The cross section of the old sports hall with its ridged roof is most characteristic. Its ridge and eaves are extended and transformed into a welcoming gesture for the entrance within four descending steps, incidentally creating a series of skylights. The front facade is triangulated and recessed to create a covered zone leading into the building.
