How many cold, sad and boring buildings! Few of them are awesome...

^ A lot of these are in the suburban sprawl surrounding Zurich, so there is very little reason to focus on the beauty of the facade when everyone races by at 70-80 km/h. Most of the beautiful projects are the downtown infill.

Just a bunch of nondescript modern boxes. For a wealthy city, I think Zurich can do better.

Neufrankengasse | Lofts

Project facts
  • Address: Neufrankengasse 10, 8004 Zürich
  • Location: District 4
  • Architects: EM2N
  • Status: completed








The project is developed out of its exciting location between two extremes: the inner city District 5 and a large area of railway tracks. This expansiveness of this “lake of a different kind” gives the place its exceptional quality.

The layered structure of the building reacts in both plan and section to the external circumstances. Bedrooms and loggias face south and look onto the quiet courtyard. Entrance halls, wet rooms and cloakrooms are centrally positioned. Living and dining areas profit from the expansive nature of the area of tracks. Depending on their position in the building some of them are double-height, the apartments at the lower levels profit from an added spatial value. Generously-dimensioned loggias connect the spacious living areas to the courtyard. Access to the building and the three staircases is from Langstrasse and from the courtyard through a plinth level that receives daylight.

^ Wow, a new classical project by Swiss standards at Löwenstrasse! Very interesting, especially the ornamental iron-wrought(?) framed windows. What is replaced there?

Any more similar examples from Zürich?

Indeed these frames and details are making a huge difference.
Proper classical styles have no chance these days in Zürich, but i know at least two more similar projects, that i will post here later.

This building was replaced:

Thanks!

Too bad an actual old building had to vanish there. That diminishes the good impression of the project. But at least that corner somehow keeps a part of its face, though simplified.

Hey Manolo_B2, do you have any information on what is currently planned at the main UZH campus? I heard that a number of new university buildings will replace old sports facilities at Rämistrasse/Gloriastrasse. I also heard that construction should start at the beginning of 2017.
