New addition, Warehouse, Wiedikon

Zurich, Switzerland

The second floor of the Wiedikon Warehouse has been reorganised to welcome a new family member.

The large entrance hallway has been subdivided with a kinked wall that carves out space for a third bedroom without impacting the spacious atmosphere of the original design. In the hallway, the surface of the wall is mirrored, creating a playful composition that changes when the coloured doors to connecting spaces are opened. A light yellow colour-scheme counteracts the new bedroom's the north-facing aspect, which receives less natural light that other spaces in the building.

Completion

Warehouse, Wiedikon

Caruso St John's work on a 1940’s industrial building has created new working and living spaces for a young family. The project lightly repairs the existing almost cubic building. The new construction is a new roof built almost to the limits of what is permitted by the planning regulations, a steep volume that rises up from the eaves along the street to make a new broad façade facing south towards the rear yard.
