Gute Bauten 2011–2015, , Award 2016

With the competition “Auszeichnung für gute Bauten” (Award for Good Buildings), the City of Zurich promotes a diverse building culture that places itself at the service of people. The Hunziker Areal impressed the interdisciplinary jury with its differentiated and high urban planning and architectural quality: “The Hunziker Areal in Zurich-Leutschenbach combines far more than just aspects of Zurich’s building culture of the last five years that are important from an urban, architectural, social, economic, and ecological point of view. The master plan embodies two main visions. Firstly, a public one: to create a new urban quarter in a peripheral location. Secondly, a cooperative one: to find a suitable place and framework for new forms of communal living and working.” (excerpt from the jury statement)
