In Dialogue With History

House Z22 und Warehouse F88
This is a Reconstruction of a multi-family house with workshop rooms underneath in the area Seefeld of the city of Zurich. The house has been in a core zone since the new regulations. Therefore the outlines of the existing volumes are protected and the project had to be developed in collaboration with the conservation of monuments.

The project is a contextual dialogue with history, the house is 170 years old. The historic, massive stone walls were the starting point for applying new contemporary forms of living – fresh typologies:
5 small apartments in the 'house' and 4 residential ateliers in the former workshops.
