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.

Zurich, Switzerland

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.
