Completion of the library courtyard at the University of Zurich


The extension building of the University of Zurich by Gunz & Künzle Architects is home to new spaces for institutes and a library. We have now completed the library courtyard on Plattenstrasse. The courtyard, which is also accessible from Phönixweg, is open not only to students but also offers the general public a place to sit and spend time outdoors in the shade during the lunch break, for instance.

Cantonal School "Zürich Nord" in Oerlikon

Drohnenaufnahme Kantonsschule, Keller+Steiner AG

 

Kantonsschule Zürich Nord was built in 1973-1975. It has aged and requires extensive renovation. General planners Bob Gysin + Partner BGP Architects, Zurich, won 1st prize in the contract award procedure for renovation of the cantonal school in the fall of 2017. 

The renovation project is planned to be realized in several stages while the school remains in operation. Ganz Landscape Architects will take care of the large grounds, which are listed in the city of Zurich inventory of gardens and public spaces worthy of protection and having local value.

Trotte Assisted Living and Nursing Home, Zürich-Wipkingen

 

We have been engaged in the planning of the landscape design of the grounds at the Trotte assisted living and nursing home in Wipkingen for 12 years.  As the team Enzmann Fischer Architekten, of which we are a member, were the winners of the open competition of the City of Zurich in 2008, the design of the exterior spaces could be expanded to the city-owned neighbouring property of the Alte Trotte for the purpose of site development. Between the new construction replacing the old Trotte Nursing Home and the student residence in the Alte Trotte there is now a public park, which in addition to generous perennial gardens also incorporates a playing field for the needs of the Wipkingen neighbourhood association. The handicapped-accessible system of paths opens up a new, higher-level connection between two streets: Nordstrasse, which runs parallel to the slope, and Trottenstrasse. The inner access system allows for loop paths for daily walks and also for therapy purposes. Away from the public eye and with direct access from the building there is a Dementia Garden with a lush planting bed on a shady terrace enclosed by pergolas. In front of the new park and next to the new senior citizens’ home, there is a café and restaurant with outdoor seating and a water basin.

Gardeners of the GGZ Gartenbau Genossenschaft Zurich are currently hard at work to make possible views of the freshly planted landscaping by 3 May 2019, the handover date for the senior citizens’ home.
