The apartment house was built in the 1950s and lies in a quiet area in Zurich, near the Toblerplatz. By means of specific alterations in the ground plan as well as the extension of the attic floor and well-chosen materials seven new, bright, spacious and clearly structured apartments could be created, while still maintaining their former appearance.
