Children’s Hospital Zürich / Herzog & de Meuron

Due to space limitations and increasingly aging infrastructure, Kinderspital Zürich called for a two-phase competition to design a new children’s hospital in the Lengg district of Zürich, Switzerland. At the recommendation of the jury, the foundation board of Kinderspital Zürich announced Herzog & de Meuron as the competition winner in May 2012. Their winning proposal includes a three-storey, wooden Children’s Hospital that provides a flexible, child-friendly environment. Furthermore, Herzog & de Meuron uses simple geometry to connect the contrasting typologies of the Children’s Hospital with the freestanding, six-story Centre for Teaching and Research that will also be located on the new medical campus.

Kinderspital Zürich expects to commission the new building in 2018.

Dominique Perrault Wins Competition for Esplanade Tower in Fribourg

Architect: Dominique Perrault Architecture
Location: Place de l’Esplanade, Fribourg, Switzerland
Client: FFS Federal Railways, Lausanne, Switzerland
Site Area: 5 000m²
Built Area: 13 000m²
Built Volume: 6 000m³ (superstructures)
Tower’s Height: 61,5 meters
Floors: 18
Commercial Area: 1,220 m² SBP
Office: 5,990 m² SBP
Restaurant: 1,820 m² SBP
Housing: 3,680 m² SBP

Dominique Perrault Architecture, the French practice recently awarded with the opportunity to build a tower called The Blade in Seoul as part of Daniel Libeskind’s master plan, has now been announced as winner of a concept/construction international competition for the Esplanade Tower in downtown Fribourg, Switzerland. The high rise is part of regeneration project of the Swiss Federal Railways at the site of the former Pilettes Station.

By 2015, the Esplanade Tower will fit into Fribourg’s skyline. The tower is a 60 meter glass skyscraper of 18 floors that is anticipated to become a landmark of the new downtown. The downtown area has a long and rich history. It is layered with the transformation of its historic districts, stratified along lower and upper terraces.

The tower’s facades respond to the conditions of its placement. The north-west side, which faces the former station, is smooth and austere. The south-east side, facing the medieval town and the urban developments, is expressive – full of corbellings and balconies – inciting a dialogue between the historic face of the city and its new developments.

The tower will be mixed use, including a commercial area, office spaces, a restaurant and housing.

Avenue de France Administrative Building / Group8

Architects: Group8
Location: Genève, Switzerland
Project Year: 2011
Photographs: Régis Golay

The “Avenue de France” administrative building is sat on a site which imposes several constraints. It was built on a site bordering the CFF (national) railway lines, limited on its northern end by the Avenue de France and adjacent to a pre-existing building. The site’s topography also imposes varying conditions namely: the railway tracks to be found at the lowest point, the level of the access to the underground parking, the level of the Avenue de France over-passing the railway and the general level of the existing adjacent buildings. It is worth noting that before construction of the building the site had long been considered as ‘unsuitable’ for development.

With the above in mind, the project layout necessitated specific spatial and visual strategies, reinforced by a particular approach to both volumetric analysis and facade designs. The issues raised by the site’s complexity were elegantly resolved in a minimalist form. In fully integrating itself with the existing buildings, the “L”-shaped volume responds to the contextual aspects by adopting the scale of the adjacent building, thus creating a single fused structure and an internal courtyard at the same time.

The result is a glass prism, which presents itself as a glazed backdrop to the railway platforms, and as the embodiment of one side of the main gateway to the International Organizations ‘quarter’ in Geneva by echoing House of Peace forming the other side of this gateway along the Avenue de France the next few years.

Office Building in Liestal / Christ & Gantenbein

Architects: Christ & Gantenbein
Location: Liestal, Switzerland
Project Year: 2011
Project Area: 1,675 sqm
Gross Floor Space: 9,659
Client: Basellandschaftliche Kantonalbank
Photographs: Roman Keller

The striking six-storey retail and office building building occupies the triangular site between the station and the head office of Basellandschaftliche Kantonalbank (BLKB). The constrictions of the site meant that the building’s footprint had to be smaller than its upper storeys, resulting in a downward tapering shape, and the dark anthracite-coloured concrete conveys a sense of robustness and stability at this dynamic location.

The main entrance into the central hall and to the shopping area features an imposing shop window front facing the station square. The entrance leads to the shops on the ground floor and to the upper storeys. The receding façade at ground floor level creates a generous protected area in front of the shop windows for passers-by as well as for those waiting for buses, thus achieving a marked improvement in the quality of this public space.

The access for deliveries and to the storage facilities and technical services area has been separated and approaches from the lower Soodweg on the eastern side of the building. The two car parking floors underground are accessed via the BLKB’s car park building.

The basic motif of the façade design results from the 2.65 m wide grid used for the office design. The building façade is evenly divided into façade elements in dark fair-faced concrete, with the width of each element being that of the office grid. The grid pattern was chosen to allow the floor space to be used for different sized units, i.e. for individual, combined and open plan offices. The floor spaces are arranged around a central services core and, with a depth of 7 to 10 m, provide the flexibility to accommodate a range of functions.

The building is the first important component of the development plan for the new station quarter in Liestal.

VoltaMitte / Christ & Gantenbein

Architects: Christ & Gantenbein
Location: Basle, Switzerland
Design Team: Mona Farag, Marion Clauss, Stefan Heiniger, Laura Schneider, Mathias Sehn, David Vaner
Project Year: 2010
Project Area: 3,140 sqm
Site: 6,900
Client: Swiss Life
Photographs: Tonatiuh Ambrosetti

The VoltaMitte housing and commercial building closes the triangular block between Voltaplatz and Lothringerplatz in the North of Basel, where the urban residential area merges into the industrial zone. The building is part of an urban refurbishment and redevelopment scheme, following the construction of the subterranean highway which connects Germany, Switzerland and France and it is situated in direct neighbourhood to the Novartis campus.

The building has been planned and designed as a large house whose length is structured by its receding and protruding façade. Due to its North-South-orientation it also offers new prospects to the Eastern-Western axis.

On the interior the building’s distortion creates asymmetrical floor plans. The specific quality of the apartments is effected by the varying depth of the building and by its diversified room situations. In the centre of each flat lies a spacious room that connects the street side and the courtyard side with each other and thus creates manifold views and relations to the exterior.

The street-level floor, which accommodates shops and institutions for the neighbourhood, is perforated by generous passages and allows insights from the boulevard to the leafy patio. Basel, Switzerland, Housing and Commercial Building

Davide Macullo Architects presents bold new commercial headquarters for Jansen AG based on pitched rooftops of Oberriet

This project is the landmark HQ of the new ‘Jansen Campus’ and is the result of two years of extraordinary collaboration between the architects and the clients. The building, a striking new addition to the skyline, is the link between the industrial area and the old town and takes its triangular forms from the traditional pitched roofs of Oberriet.

The scheme integrates innovative technologies and includes new details and materials not yet used in architecture - the façade system for example, which displays structural glazing details (by Jansen AG) and internal glazed fireproof doors. The building’s heating, ventilation, lighting and energy consumption meets strict Swiss ‘Minergie’ standards, meaning that it has excellent sustainable credentials - the HV system, for example, is ‘TAPS’ activated by the structural shell of the building.

One of Jansen’s main objectives for the project is to make the Campus a creative and engaging place for all their employees. The building’s work spaces are open plan, with each employee having their own custom designed workstation. Many furniture pieces have been custom-designed for the project and stand alongside the chosen brands of Alias and Cappellini.

All spaces look out across the Rheintal and the geometry of the building means that visitors and employees alike are offered unexpected glimpses sliced out of the landscape. The landscaped park surrounding the building includes 80 trees, 35 different species representative of those of the region. The project also sees the beginning of the Jansen Art collection, containing works by international contemporary artists.

Commercial Building Islas / Mierta & Kurt Lazzarini Architekten

Architects: Mierta & Kurt Lazzarini Architekten
Location: Samedan, Switzerland
Project Year: 2012
Project Area: 1,540 sqm
Photographs: Courtesy of Mierta & Kurt Lazzarini Architekten

The new Gewerbehaus Islas was desinged as a modern and innovative office building and finished in only 11 months.

It‘s located in Samedan between Inn River and kantonal road. Its headstrong curtain wall is inspired by the meandring riverbed. With the rolling elements of rusty iron sheet it is reminiscent of the stepped hillsides and the color of the near larch woods in autumn. At the same time the nearly complete glazed veneer is reflecting the engadinian landscape in consistently new and sudden semitransparent sections.

Due to the frame construction on the buildings perimeter and the central vertical access it is able to host very different functions on 4 floors, which provide a total capacity of 1400qm. The current programs are a migrolino-store, a dental surgery, a beauty clinic and an architecture office.

As a result of the special and clever energy strategy the building can be called „energy storage – house“. With the aid of solar panels on the roof the solar heat will be stored in a resounding water tank (with a heigt of 12m, 20.000l). In a similar manner the fair faced concrete floors also serve as a storage. The stored energy of solar panels and exposed concrete is returned to the house by an intelligent control. In additon to the water tank, the rejected heat of the refrigerator system of the migrolino store in the ground floor will saved too.

In the case of thermal shortage in the wintertime a proportionally small oil heating system will be activated. Therefor it‘s possible to stoke the whole building with solar energy across nearly the complete year.

New office building for Swarovski from ingenhoven architects

This transparent office building for 500 employees of the Swarovski Corporation is situated on the eastern side of Lake Zurich, 19 km south of the city of Zurich, in the village of Männedorf. The main focus of the design is the lake view, through the transparency of the façade as well as the arrangement of the work places. The ground floor contains a lobby with a lounge, a restaurant, conferences rooms and workshops. The upper floors contain mostly open office space for maximum flexibility.

There are 170 parking spaces at the basement level. The design and the sustainability concept follow the Swiss Minergie eco standard. Water from the lake is used for both heating and cooling. The client wanted to promote team work through open and transparent offices in cutting edge sustainable building. The architecture supports and initiates informal and formal communication between the employees from all levels.

Flexible and reversible office layout should allow for quick and easy organisational change. The brief called for high-quality workplaces for all employees. The orientation of the building and the all-glass facades make maximum use of the qualities of the site. The client wanted workplaces that stimulate creativity, well-being and allow barrier-free communication. It is achieved by creating a 'community' workplace experience with a balance between open and protected areas and transparent partition walls.

Finally a building that looks good on the inside *and* outside. Don´t like the exterior of much of the building on this page...

Wine Museum Proposal / Mauro Turin Architectes

Architects: Mauro Turin Architectes
Location: Lake Geneva, Lavaux (World Heritage Site), Switzerland
Team: Mauro Turin, Magdalena Lewczyk, Thomas Sponti
Gross Floor Area: 1,000m2
Year: 2012

The main challenge in the design for the Wine Museum in Lavaux was to generate a large-scale cultural attraction non-existent today. Designed by Mauro Turin Architectes, their proposal creates a wine museum that shows and tells the whole heritage richness of the wine-growing area since the Middle Ages seams relevant, but not sufficient to attract people from around the world. The museum wants to be a small iconic object in a great iconic landscape; without being in competition but rather feeding each other. More images and architects’ description after the break.

On the shores of Lake Geneva, Lavaux is a unique place declared UNESCO World heritage site in 2007. A wine museum suspended on a rock, avoiding the sublime terraced vineyards, which becomes integrated to the landscape and offers a walk in the air allowing an unforgettable experience of Lavaux, Lake Geneva and the Alps could be the answer.

The integration of the museum is contextual and regional without falling into a banal mimesis or a fearful disappearance; it is in the order of the experienced observer, of the deep sensibility and of the advanced intellectual exercise. It is in the order of the nature of things.

Suurstoffi / Holzer Kobler Architekturen


Quote:
Architects: Holzer Kobler Architekturen
Location: Risch Rotkreuz, Switzerland
Year: 2013
Photographs: Courtesy of Holzber Kobler

From the architect. Where pure oxygen was once produced in a centrally located area of Risch-Rotkreuz (Suurstoffi is the Swiss-German name for “oxygen”), the sustainable and car-free Suurstoffi offers space for around 1,500 residents and up to 3,000 employees.

In the first phase of construction, a composition of differently formed cubic volumes arose not far from the railway station Rotkreuz. Now upon completion, a whole differentiated, sculptural building complex meanders along the tracks.

The three independent volumes differ in their proportions, materials and color.

Each design is in itself unique and different functional properties lend the ensemble a playful lightness. The complex serves as a self-sufficient microcosmos in which the different functions are stacked on top of and wedged into each other. The easternmost building houses the Swiss headquarters of Novartis, whereas the other two buildings offer a mix of housing and professional working environments. The 87 apartments – from smaller scale flats to larger penthouses – allow a broad spectrum of varied forms of living through individualized floor plans.

Recessed balconies and greened roof gardens complement the biodiversity of the surrounding landscape and create a unique atmosphere for each resident. Furthermore, the Suurstoffi distinguishes itself through its sustainability concept: all buildings are supplied with electricity, heat and warm water, in a pollutant- and CO2-free manner through a power grid and photovoltaic system that allows surplus energy to be fed back into the regional energy network.
