tanzwerk 101

2 / 10

Location: 8005 Zürich
Client: Migros Herdern, Zürich
Status: built
Project: 2012-2013

The Tanzwerk is a dance school in the logistics department of the Migros supermarket chain in the industrial area of Zürich. Before the partial conversion project the spaces were used for ripening bananas and as storage. 9 dance spaces, a large dance auditorium, an office area with work spaces as well as a variety of additional rooms were incorporated into the project. The large glazing system in combination with spatial divisions transports the light deep within the building. A concrete spiral stair connects the generous entrance hall with the lower levels. The materials: concrete, glass and yellow chrome elements are minimalist and carefully selected.
