1st prize in Hamburg

We are happy about the 1st prize in the competition for the new housing development at the Lichtenauerweg in Hamburg. Our proposal is an open and permeable residential development as a strong and at the same time distinctive urban figure. With a versatile sequence of outdoor spaces, our design creates a varied quarter for the new residents.

Dichtelust

From 24 November 2018 to 5 May 2019 the exhibition ‘Dichtelust – Forms of Urban Coexistence in Switzerland’ will be on view at the S AM. The exhibition refutes these irrational arguments and demonstrates the real meaning of density: the thoughtful and compact utilisation of buildable territory. It examines different forms of historical density and contemporary redensification. We are represented in the exhibition with the Glasi-Areal project.

BUCHEGG ESTATE IN THE «10VOR10» TV PROGRAMME

More and more people in Switzerland want to live as centrally as possible. The cities must be densified. However, more people also generate more traffic, and thus noise. The problem – living where it’s loud – and the answer of the architects were presented in a report in the “10vor10” TV programme.
