Apartmenthouse Siewerdtstrasse

To react on the spatial situation of the Siewerdtstrasse a design strategy was developed that adapts the building mass and the apartment types to the different spatial conditions. In contrast to the northern side of the building, which represents a classical frontage, the southern façade is stepped and modulated, structuring the courtyard.

Due to the depth and the north-south orientation of the building, each apartment has a lofty, 3.50 m high main space. On the southern side this space has a balcony. This split-level typology stretches the apartment over up to three different levels.

Regular apartments:
The head of the building gets excellent sun exposure on all sides. The apartments are orientated north, east and south. All of them have balconies or terraces.

All apartments have generous balconies on the south side, with nice views over Oerlikon. Every flat has a different layout.
