Nine are enough, Kloten, Switzerland, 2019–2023

The housing estates built in the last millennium are slowly getting old. Changes in society, energy requirements, earthquake safety or the suitability for disabled people require new buildings to replace existing ones. For economic reasons, too.

Three structures take advantage of the opportunity to redevelop the large site. They are developed from the characteristic conditions of the site and its topography.

Green space surrounds the buildings. They are fitted lengthwise into the southern slope, which in turn react with their differentiated building heights to the neighbouring residential buildings. The characteristic feature of the houses, however, is the organisation of the complex and interwoven apartment layouts. With one staircase and one spatially interesting development figure, nine apartments of different sizes are accessed per floor and house. Various circulation options and oversized balconies characterize these.
