First prize Theaterstrasse 12, Zurich

In 2022, the lease for the "Globus-Haus" in Bellevue expires and the building will undergo a complete renovation for the first time. The client - PSP Group - has decided not to build a replacement building, but to undertake a comprehensive overall renovation in order to significantly improve the ecological and economic aspects of the property. A study for the renovation was carried out by six planning teams. The input of the Basel architects Jessenvollenweider with Schnetzer Puskas Ingenieure was recommended for further processing. The project envisages that the basic static framework is largely retained on all floors. The breakthroughs are planned in the ceiling panels.

Papieri Quarter, Cham
The idle paper mill at the northern edge of Cham will be turned into a new quarter. Surrounded by forests and meadows before production began in the steadily growing industrial area 360 years ago, the spatial gap between the city and the “Papieri” site has slowly closed. The boiler house is the most prominent identity-defining building on entering the “Papieri” quarter. As before, it occupies a central position on the premises of the former paper mill. The distinctive, listed 1950s building used to supply the entire paper mill with power generated by vaporisation of water. The house continues to fulfil this fundamental function as a catalyst even after the change of use. Light-weight construction elements made of steel and glass are integrated in the existing structure to accommodate various uses. The in-between space offers additional room for working, crafting and relaxing.

New nursing centre Kloster Ingenbohl
One of the central projects for the redesign of the monastery hill is the renewal of the care area. The six-storey new building is a central building block in the monastery complex and replaces the old St. Josef nursing home. The 70m long new building, set like a disc on the monastery hill, is intended to strengthen the spirituality and uniqueness of the place through a contemporary architectural expression. Through the differentiated materialisation with the upper floor timber construction, the desired sensuality and closeness to nature are to be brought into the building and radiated.
