More Information
Our proposal, in cooperation with Alex Copeman, for the construction of a new sport hall for the school in Adetswil was awarded third prize!
The building is located on a slope, allowing an entrance towards the street and a new front towards the large recreational area of the school. 
The topic of energy consumption and sustainability is addressed in the project by proposing low-energy systems such as night cooling with cross-ventilation and through the construction of recycled concrete walls, made from the demolition of the previous building.

Our proposal for the extension of the Sonnenhalde care home was awarded second prize!
The residential centre for people with severe multiple disabilities is developed with a square floor plan repeated over three floors. The simple layout allows intuitive circulation and a natural transition between spaces. The construction system based on bio-based materials and the generous use of wood in the interior spaces create a relaxed atmosphere with a positive effect on the users.
