Small urban buildings I City of Zurich

In cooperation with our partners Stoos Architects, we won the design competition for small buildings in the City of Zurich.

“Zapillon” is a modular and flexible design and construction system, which unites the architecture of small-scale urban public buildings, kiosks, boot rental stations and public toilets through its cross-functional design language with strong character. Simultaneously, it helps to prevent vandalism and facilitates maintenance.
