Suurstoffi Zug, Rotkreuz , 2017
The almost completed “Suurstoffi” quarter is located in the immediate vicinity of Lake Zug, embedded in an impressive landscape and well connected due to its proximity to the Rotkreuz railway station. For the final stage, we propose two buildings of different sizes within the perimeter, which are spatially offset from one another along their longitudinal axis. The volumetric design of the two buildings differs just as much as the appearance of their façades. The longer volume of the two takes up the alignment of the neighbouring building and continues it in a straight line along the park. On the one hand, this simple urban-planning positioning creates a clear, adequate front facing the park, which has an impressive appearance due to the significant recesses on the upper floors, and on the other hand, it forms an appropriate forecourt towards the road located north, which represents a constructive connecting point for a possible further development of the area in this direction.
