Competition: Tribschen, Lucerne

16th October 2019. Caruso St John Architects has won a competition for a new apartment building in central Lucerne. A new addition to the neighbourhood between Tribschenstrasse and Geissensteinring to the south-east of Bahnhof Luzern, the 5,700m2 scheme provides 143 apartments and retail space as well as a communal roof-terrace and underground parking. In keeping with the heterogeneity of the location, the design is not characterised by a single entrance or a primary façade. Rather, each facade is an individual gesture and reaction to different parts of the site.

Competition: Kinderheim Pilgerbrunnen, Zurich

A delicate structure of balconies and walkways lines the inner facades, providing vantage points for the inhabitants to participate in the collective space of the courtyard.
