The Ensemble Houses

  • Germaniastrasse, 8006 Z├╝rich
  • Ensemble Houses enable people of different ages to form a community or even a new family. The neighbourhood consists of one pavilion and six houses that are designed to accommodate families and elderlies.
  • By alternating private and public spaces, the neighbourhood allows privacy, while still opening up one's daily life for encounters. A cascading terrain and loosely placed houses ensure a natural circulation within the quarter and open it up to neighbours.
  • The wooden structure gives the maisonettes a cosy contrast to the wide windows, which open up towards Zurich.
