The Tiny House, Zollikerberg, Switzerland, 2019–2021


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.

SAM4167 v2

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.
