Case Study – Fellowship Home – Alfred Roth, 1960

  • Z├╝rich
  • The different layers of privacy characterise the Fellowship Home. Space has been created for students but also an enclosed area for the architect himself.
  • In nature, wether on the roof or on one of the several forecourts, these two actors merge. A house created in such a way that the individual's features correspond to the occupant's one.
  • The centrepiece is the west facade with its zigzag pattern, so ideal light is captured in the rooms and a constant view of nature is guaranteed.
