7/10: Mehr Als wohnen - Hunziker Areal Zurich
More than living Co operatives housing designed by an Architectural design competition. There was a kindergarten, school and High school all with no fences and open to the community. This development had private student pods with shared common space and private bedrooms. There was a guest accommodation block and roof top gardens. Much more... Again that village feel captured in the inter generational mix of residents, including older residents and disabled. The mobility room was filled with electric cargo bikes to do a local shopping trip! Clever art delivering hot drinks😊Upside down dining tables where 1% is dedicated to Art on a project, it’s quirky and fun!
9/10: Hunziker-Areal, Zürich.
I think this quarter has become a manifestation of new forms of housing that replace traditional homes with something new and different, but equally ‘home’. The codex of what traditionally defines ‘home’ has been reinterpreted to provide an equally desirable alternative.
