Swiss Housing
The two housing blocks are part of an overall plan by burkhalter sumi architects. In a reference to the guideline planning for the Sulzerareal in Oberwinterthur the long building volumes are at right angles to Eulachpark thus allowing the desired spatial transparency. The point-buildings on Hegifeldstrasse are organised as part of the street development. The western residential block and the two point buildings were designed as lofts by Novaron Architekten.

These two projects on the Glärnischstrasse 2a and 7 in Küsnacht were built within two years of each other. They illustrate the move towards increased density at present occurring in this popular residential district.

Zurich House
The unique premise situated below Pflugstein, a popular recreational destination above the lake of Zurich, consists of two different zones, one on a higher artificial plateau and the other one on a declining hillside overlooking the lake. In the eighties, the existing group of houses on the plateau was renovated and expanded into a walled-in housing complex by the architect Pierre Zoelly. The building is situated at the junction between the plateau and the hill, south of the existing housing complex.

Han Bit Housing, Herrliberg, Switzerland

Herrliberg Houses
The volumes of the individual buildings are staggered, both horizontally and vertically. In this way they react to the sloping topography. At the same time slender end walls are made that help integrate the buildings entirely naturally in a spatial clasp between the development lower down along Schulhausstrasse and the retaining wall of the upper plateau.
