Apartment building L329 in Zurich - Switzerland

Firm LocationZurich, Switzerland
CompanyRossetti+Wyss Architects
Lead ArchitectNathalie Rossetti / Mark Aurel Wyss

The new building replaces an apartment building from the 1930s and fits naturally into the built context in terms of grain and volume. Despite the increased living space, the volume of the new building appears restrained in the greened urban body and completes the rhythmic building structure along Limmattalstrasse. The appearance of the building dimensions is broken up by the bending of the end facades. The building proportions hereby mediate to the surrounding properties.The choice of a pitched roof for the new building follows the same intention and conveys respectfully to the context.
