This project integrates a large apartment building into the wider context of a cantonal urbanisation plan. However, the building seeks its own rules of composition – derived from the location – to create its own autonomy and identity.

The interior of each apartment consists of an entrance hall leading into a living area extending through the full depth of the building, from garden to street. Depending on the size of the apartment, the bedrooms are either north- or south-facing. The living rooms of all apartments open onto the broad balcony-terrace.
