From a golden field (Goldacker) to a sunny garden (Sonnengarten), Zurich-Albisrieden, Switzerland, 2019

Our project for this urban development competition refers to the existing adjacent building by von Ballmoos Krucker architects. Our layout of buildings continues this morphology because we believe in the urban continuity of our city. Large residential buildings follow the landscape. The existing road network will be adopted, as will the small buildings that characterize the district. Together with the generous green spaces, new neighbourhoods and a new centre emerge.
