The Tiny House, Zollikerberg, Switzerland, 2019–2023

 

How do you create generosity with just a little space? What an interesting and future-oriented question. The economy of space clearly plays a central role. But we also pay special attention to the design of the access to the apartments, to the quality of the individual and collective exterior spaces, to the orientation, to the shape of the rooms and to the proximity to the neighbours.

Four houses with 39 apartments are being built here, some with a patio, some with a directly accessible multi-purpose room in the basement and some with two floors. The materiality is reduced - metal and wooden panels, brick, exposed concrete – it is meant to become a house made of many houses.

Eine gemeinschaftlich genutzte, räumlich gefasste Gasse dient als Treffpunkt und Adressierung. Zusammen mit den Wohnungsgrundrissen und dem verbindenden sozialen Raum zeigt die Architektur wie sowohl mit privaten individuellen Ansprüchen, aber auch gleichzeitig mit gemeinschaftlichen Bereichen umgegangen werden kann. Entstanden ist eine Siedlung, die einige Antworten zu aktuellen und drängenden Fragen gibt.
