Client: Private client

This project is located near the Bahnhof Wiedikon in a mixed part of Zurich where an excellent art gallery, a designer furniture store, and a Hasidic synagogue are all a minute’s walk away. The original building is a warehouse and depot that was purpose-built for a Zurich-based publisher in the 1940s, and is now inhabited by the third generation of the same family.
