New construction ZFH, Bahnhofstrasse 31, Urdorf

The two-family house is located, with slope, very central in five minutes walk to school, train station and shopping. The new building has a strong interaction of different building materials, concrete, masonry and wood. All materials are skillfully shown and give clear finishes.

Project description 

After a postponed start due to the winter, the building, which changes the materialization of the envelope three times, was constructed within a very short time. The basement and the surrounding building elements were constructed with exposed concrete. The first floor was created in interaction with exposed concrete and slurried brick facade masonry. The upper floor remains the same in wall appearance, but has a wooden ceiling and the attic floor is entirely made of wood. 


Special features 

The material changes resulted in many details, which were solved by the good cooperation of planners, designers and executors. The result was a high-quality building that satisfied all parties involved.
