Renovation Zentrum Witikon, Witikon

Witikon, 2019, renovation commercial centre, GF 25'700m2

Built in 1970 by the architect association Eidenbenz Bosshard Meier, Zentrum Witikon was one of the first shopping centres in Switzerland. The structuralism-inspired complex encompasses three multi-unit buildings, three low-rise buildings and a central square. Following renovation, the now listed property once again has a visually cohesive appearance. Beyond the raw concrete aesthetic, the ensemble is characterised by meticulously restored original elements such as the copper facing shells of the upper-storey windows and the brass blind rails.
