Location: Birchstrasse, 8057 Zürich
Client: private
Status: built
Project: 2010-2011


The residential building on Birchstrasse was completed in 1921 and is one block within a larger neighbourhood development on the border with Oerlikon. The four residential units were renovated to meet current living standards. New sound absorption was built in to improve the acoustics in the apartments. The bathrooms and kitchens were carefully renovated using a colour palette and materials that reference the era of construction.
