Residential Complex, Oberengstringen
In a study commission for the ecological-ethical pension fund Nest Sammelstiftung, which was created in collaboration with the project developer befair partners ag, a new residential complex should be built in Oberengstringen. The new building is expected to be of high ecological, economic and socio-cultural quality. OOS has developed a design based on the principle of maximum CO2 savings and thus narrowly misses out on the competition.
Each floor has its own individual character. The floor plans, which are easy to furnish, can be used in a variety of ways. The static timber construction system of columns and slabs with Timber Structures 3.0 technology is a novelty and offers maximum flexibility in room design, both today and for future conversions.
Natural materials and minimal use of domestic technology
The landscaping with gravel areas, rough pastures, trees and shrubs as well as local sandstone promotes biodiversity and avoids sealed surfaces as much as possible. It invites visitors to linger and play with a variety of activities. An underground gallery was not built in order to save grey energy and construction costs.
