Langgrüthof Albisrieden – More city for the city
The site of the historic Albisrieden window factory is being reorganised with two precisely placed buildings and configured in a way that is compatible with the neighbourhood.
In the future, the site will be used for both working and living. To this end, the existing building, which is already used for manufacturing, will be extended with a hall and additional office space. A spacious workshop will be created together with the existing office and commercial building at the intersection of Letzigraben and Langgrütstrasse.
A new residential building follows the quiet Langgrütstrasse and, together with another GEWOBAG apartment building designed by our office, spans a quiet and verdant courtyard from which all 70 apartments benefit. With only two staircases and lifts, these are accessed extremely efficiently.
With its various floor plan types, the project offers a wide range of options for a mixed resident population. A multi-purpose room and "shared co-working spaces" complete the spatial programme.
