Award for good buildings of the City of Zurich 2016–2020
We are very pleased that our Schlotterbeck site is one of the 12 winners of the "Good Buildings Award of the City of Zurich" and has been honoured with the following description: "Workshops to flats, monument to landmark: the transformation of the former Citroën garage shows what quality can be created when old buildings are not lamented as obstacles but used as sources of inspiration. The ramp building of the former garage was raised to a cylindrical tower in which all the flats open up to the light. In the workshop building, too, the existing structure – 35 m building depth, different storey heights and a striking supporting structure – led to unique flat types. Here, densification generates not only building volume, but also spatial quality and social references."
From September 20 to October 30, 2021, the award-winning objects can be seen in the Architecture Forum on Zollstrasse in Zurich. It is the first exhibition in the new premises of the Architekturforum.

The construction profiles grow in height
Lucerne's tallest building and one of the tallest residential construction projects in Switzerland is being built at Mattenhof in Kriens. Currently, the construction profiles are growing upwards and give an idea of the future volume. The ensemble consists of the 110m-high Pilatus Tower, the 50m-high Tower at Mattenplatz and the Pilatus Arena in between. Construction is scheduled to start in 2022.
