Akzess

With the project AKZESS, OOS is setting the course for future uses at the former Schweiter industrial site in Horgen Oberdorf. The name says it all. The project, which was submitted as part of a study, lends the area in a prominent location directly at the railway station a unique urban identity that is characterised by openness and accessibility.

With this project OOS goes beyond the requirements of a market-driven offer for living and working including supplementary services - AKZESS stands for living spaces for the future. By this OOS means a green urban interior surrounded by a hard architectural exterior - the two buildings "HILLSIDE" and "LAKESIDE". The two new buildings create an interesting relationship to the existing substance. The staggering of the buildings in a transverse direction to the slope optimises the view for the apartments in the old and new buildings.
In the sense of permeability and accessibility, different uses, apartment types, open spaces, squares and passages provide the desired individual atmospheres. AKZESS also stands for great flexibility in terms of structural adjustments for possible future uses. Thanks to its modular structure, apartments can be converted into office or commercial space and vice versa.
