AXA Investment Managers Schweiz AG
Lead Landscape Architect

AXA Insurance has taken over the former Zurich headquarters of the construction company Implenia and repositioned it in the current real estate market.

The newly designed KOWERK office and commercial building is original and flexibly tailored to SME needs in the middle of the newly designed Dietlikon shopping area. It offers everything that is desired from a multi-user building. Established companies and start-ups will find flexible spaces from 10 m² to 6'621 m². The exciting mix of users and the modern fit-out make KOWERK a unique and attractive company location. Ideally located at the gates of Zurich, not far from the airport and the new Dübendorf Innovation Park, with 2 S-Bahn connections 12 minutes from Zurich main station.

The landscape architects taktyk Paris have transformed the previously forbidding surroundings into a streetscape of colourful perennials, small shrubs and trees. The differences in height are made obstacle-free by ramps. Bright, coloured pavements made of polished mastic asphalt connect the inviting pedestrian crossings with the newly designed entrances on the front sides in the east and west with eye-catching green KOWERK portals. A footpath runs along the shop fronts on the long south façade. The fresh greenery culminates in the roof garden on the 6th floor, which was also executed under DGJ's expert construction management.
