Flower House involved the remodelling of a small old house to provide space to accommodate a single client. The scheme included the refurbishment of the existing ground floor, demolished of the 1st floor as well as the construction of a new one. The building is set within heritage site, which has drawn out a unique response to the history and settings. The building geometry, orientation and size is driven by the site constraintsSave this picture!© João FerrandAt the site, the existing buildings are idiosyncratic of their type, with flank elevations and roof profiles, which run the breadth of the neighborhood of Foz Velha. These buildings are detailed in a utilitarian manner, with an honesty of material and detailing one would expect. In responding to this condition, the design of the new building make clear reference to their historical parts. A two storey dwelling with character and personality, respectful of the existing neighborhood, and taking advantage of the views. Save this picture!© João FerrandIn the interior the project was aimed at creating a series of flowing, contemporary spaces, allowing a greater degree of flexibility, linking the internal spaces of the ground floor in just one: living, dining and kitchen. Two different stairs ensures the connectivity between ground floor living spaces and upper floors of bedrooms and study space.Save this picture!© João FerrandThe core ambition of the scheme was to create a dwelling, which, over time, would come to reflect an approach to contemporary renovation work and create a flexible environment for who will live there.Save this picture!© João FerrandAccessible via a path with only 2 m wide, flanked by old houses, externally, the building is wrapped in a homogenous white skin, which wraps up from the landscape. This relationship of building to street retains those historic associations described, and similarly allows for a contemporary sculptural form to sit comfortably within its context. “COPY” CopyAbout this officeEZZOOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPortoHousesPortugalPublished on December 18, 2013Cite: “Flower House / EZZO” 18 Dec 2013.

Zellweger Park, a former industrial site in Uster, Switzerland, has been converted into a mixed-use neighborhood featuring high-quality architecture and contemporary art. Within this framework, Herzog & de Meuron have completed a building containing 32 apartments in the mid-range price segment. It is adjacent to the administrative headquarters and showroom pavilion of Zellweger Luwa, designed in the 1960s by the Swiss architect Roland Rohn.Save this picture!© Erica OvermeerThe eight-story cube is situated in the middle of the park on the shores of the Herterweiher. It stands at an angle to the neighboring buildings to maximize the orientation toward the sun. The apartments, with a square ground plan, are placed in the corners one above the other, affording views in two directions of Uster Castle, the Herterweiher pond, Lake Greifensee and the Alps. The building as a whole seems to be hovering above the level of the public park, ensuring privacy for the ground floor tenants.Save this picture!© Erica OvermeerThe circulation typology in this building provides a great measure of privacy and vibrant contact with the natural surroundings. The apartments are each accessed individually through two lifts in middle of the building, which has no shared hallways. The staircases are placed outside at the four corners of the building in combination with spacious balconies, linking each apartment directly to the park. These round towers are each positioned differently to maximize both sunlight and discretion for tenants. When they come from the park, they can use the stairwell to access their apartments via the balconies: large, crescent-shaped loggias, fitted with curtains, like an additional room, with railings consisting of white wooden picket fences created by the artist Erik Steinbrecher.Save this picture!© Erica OvermeerThe façade, a concrete grid throughout, was poured using the most inexpensive formwork. The expression of the concrete is raw and mistakes were corrected only if technically necessary. The windows of aluminum and wood allow considerable sunlight into the deep apartments and afford magnificent views of the old trees and the neighboring buildings across the pond and into the park. Despite energy efficiency codes, it was possible to insert large picture windows because the building is a cube and as such very compact.Save this picture!© Erica OvermeerThe spaciousness of the apartments is generated by an open floor plan with a flowing sequence of spaces; there are no halls inside the apartments either. All of the rooms are accessed from the centrally located open kitchen. There are two types of apartments with 4 1⁄2 and 5 1⁄2 rooms respectively.Save this picture!© Erica OvermeerThe interior walls of concrete or masonry are all loadbearing. Time-tested, high-quality materials typically available in Switzerland have been used throughout: Forster kitchens, strip flooring, white painted stucco walls, and fair-faced concrete ceilings. The bathrooms are tiled. The sturdy shell of the building, the solid fittings and the down-to-earth detailing resonate with the character of the former industrial site.Project gallerySee allShow lessProject locationAddress:Uster, SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.
