Zurich: Kraftwerk1 (Stuecheli Architekten)

The overall project leaves the space in between as active and effective public zones. The tightest area between buildings is a café, another area a small football field, on the other side, a playground, then a garden, etc. The facades are rich in their formal approaches, and varieties they offer the building and surrounding areas. They give a hint of the variety inside, but do somewhat mask the complexities of the three dimensional jockeying going on inside the building. There is a range of unit sizes as well as heights and three dimensional spaces within the building. Solid project.
