Our Irchel Campus conversion of 23,000 square metres into temporary school facilities for the Oerlikon, Rämibühl and Enge schools has cleared a major hurdle. The colour and material design concept has been received positively by all project owners and user representatives. We’re truly delighted.
The listed buildings, from well renowned Architect Max Ziegler, were completed in 1978. The concept is based on the principle of a clear distinction between the existing protected university extension and the temporary school facilities. Materials and colour scheme are a clear indicator for users of the temporary school facilities. Wherever possible, the materials are visible and specific surfaces can be experienced. The architectural elements and technical installations should be recognisable as such.
