Landolt Areal

Urban life, independence and flexibility are buzzwords that appeal to committed singles and "dinks". Good amenities and communications within the community are arguments for an elderly generation.

The area's central position surrounded by the various development structures is fundamental to the project. The fragmented detached residences on Freudenberg meet with the uniform succession of various standards in the area of the Sihl River. Directly to the east, starts the perimeter block development of the city.
The project combines the typology of point block building with the atmospheric density of an old town. The type of point block building enables the view of individual buildings to be specifically controlled and an orientation on three sides for each apartment. The external spaces relate to external space and interspace within an old town in terms of their proportions and conception. These spaces are familiar and urban. Their proportionateness enables the occupier to build a relationship with these spaces and make them their own. Much more than the usual, generic gaps between buildings, these are places with which to identify. Individual contexts emerge for each building with a clear prestige value.
The principle of layering space starts with the apartments. The individual units are grouped around the development center in the middle of the building. These are, in turn, developed around an internal center. A flexible floor plan layout and various divisions are possible. The three sides enable the apartments to be oriented south as well as north toward to the recreational area. Involvement by the occupants in the design and future changes (amalgamating apartments etc.) is made possible.
