Ortho v5

Living in the trees. Apartment building, Zurich 2020–2022

House 5 on Langgrütweg is the most recent of five houses we're building for GEWOBAG. It is characterised by densification in favour of open space. The three-unit complex allows for optimal orientation of the flats and a strong relationship to the open space.

The cubic staggering of the building gives it a slender shape and a filigree appearance. The compact footprint allows the preservation of a huge oak tree and at the same time leads to the spatial strengthening of the lush green corridor. Large, projecting balconies enrich the house sculpturally and a brick shell establishes the relationship to the house on Langgrütstrasse.
