Zollikofen Sector B

The project "Dreieck Bahnhof-Bernstrasse-Kreuzstrasse" in Zollikofen is a prerequisite for a new, active and mixed district by way of developing and increasing the density of the area. Its architectural concept with its various possible usages promises comfortable living, room for retreat, work, living and meeting spaces.

By way of additional floors, the architecture of the extension appears light, and to almost float on the existing base. It gives the present building a new frame and also upgrades it in terms of urban development and architecture. The cubature, stepped down towards the south, sets a new urban focus on Bernstrasse and opens the courtyard of the building towards the adjacent quarter. The modular construction and the proposed assembly system are based on the idea of sustainability as well as economical prefabrication and allows an easy replacement of individual facade elements. The generously planned pergolas and roof terraces provide social meeting points and high-quality lounges for the residents. Due to its open structure and integrative qualities, the densified and modernised building ensemble forms a vital element in the development of the entire district.
