Case Study – House Gisel – Ernst Gisel, 1966

  • Zumikon, Z├╝rich
  • An oasis out of concrete, stone and metal, sky to the outside, blossoming on the inside, only limited about of thins pass its boundaries.
  • With the courtyard as the heart, Ernst Gisel built himself a home around it, approaching architecture like a sculpture.
  • Following the spirit of the time, yet valuing individual expression over fashion.
