Wohnsiedlung Schönauring

Esch Sintzel Architekten, Schweingruber Zulauf Landschaftsarchitekten — Wohnsiedlung Schönauring

Cooperative housing scheme comprising 160 apartments, located on the northern outskirts of Zürich. The scheme replaces an existing housing estate dating from the early postwar period, based on the principle of the fusion of landscape and urban ‚tessuto’ typical for the time. The design proposal follows the same principle by spatially interlocking the polygonally shaped built volumes and the garden spaces in between. In order to both maximize the economical efficiency and to minimize the building envelope, the apartments are interlocking in plan and section.
