Residential development, Kloten
With corners and edges
Year constructed: 2018
A beautiful meadow in the upper part of the city of Kloten is awaiting a contemporary living space for families. A visionary wants to rebuild this space in a sustainable and contemporary way: architecturally, economically and in terms of materials, energy use and urban planning. To obtain the optimum result, he is organising a competition among three firms.
The architectural expression is strongly horizontal but also playful. The house appears to be floating and yet is firmly anchored to the ground. The building employs different geometries depending on the surrounding urban context, becoming in this way the new hub and centre of the surrounding structures.
