This premiated project by EM2N is a quadratic, emblematic volume with cut-outs at two of the corners, which anchors the site in the urban plan of Zurich-Altstetten in a way that establishes identity and engages in a dialogue with the surrounding residential and commercial buildings. The new four-storey building with a rational basic structure and central circulation core is characterized by a tripartite sectional figure, spatially formulated in different ways, which consists of a glazed ground floor that opens to outdoor space, two standard floors, and a sawtooth roof.
