Apartement House Birchsteg

 Back to Projects list
Year
2014

The building site at Birchsteg is defined by the SBB railroad tracks cutting through the plot, as well as the traditional row housing on Birchstrasse. With its massive, polished and slightly deformed appearance, the building block responds to the issue of the neighbouring noise pollution. A central core -containing the staircase, lift and bathrooms- penetrates the entire building volume. It defines the adjacent open, split leveled spaces into different zones for living, sleeping and working.
