Suurstoffi, Rotkreuz , 2015

“The building on construction site C will occupy an outstanding position in the Suurstoffi quarter due to its height and central location. The aim is that the building not only incorporates this aspect through its form, but above all through its energy concept, which is achieved through an intelligent mix of high-tech and low-tech. Since neither the location nor the view of the building constitutes a unique selling proposition in relation to the competing properties, the building itself must become this unique selling proposition. It is to be clearly recognisable as a residential building by means of a non-monotonous, lively and “green” façade and represent something unique in Switzerland. (Excerpt from the competition brief)
