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.

Glärnischstrasse Doppelhaus
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
Date built: 2005

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.

Multengut housing for senior citizens, Muri, Switzerland
Date built: 2004

Seniorenresidenz Multengut
The dominant architectural element is the almost 90-metre long wooden platform that forms a relaxation and sun terrace in the tradition of classic 19th century Alpine hotels. Foyer, dining room, lounge, library, fireplace room and lecture room are placed directly behind the veranda.

Rigiblick Hotel and Theatre, Zurich
Date built: 2004

Rigiblick Hotel
The large letters of the sign mark the approach to the Rigiblick hotel and theatre space, a popular goal for excursions on the Zürichberg, with a unique view of the Rigi (mountain) and across the city of Zurich. The complex of buildings is freed from various additions and extensions from different periods and reduced to its three constituent parts.

Town Villas Witikon, Zurich
Date built: 2002

Witikon Stadtvillen
The typology of Town Villas Witikon is related to the two houses by Alfred Roth and Marcel Breuer in the Doldertal (1936) and to the concept of the palazzine as, for example, developed in Rome by Adalberto Libera and Luigi Moretti from the mid-1930s onwards to provide a sensible size and typology for higher-quality, urban housing.
