Additional residential and commercial buildings on the area of the former silk weaving mill.
Planning 2019-2020 / Construction 2020-2022
Today, the historical halls of the former silk-weaving plant lie right at the heart of Stäfa’s residential district. The new housing and commercial complex will close a gap in the northern part of the site, replicating the granularity of the surrounding area in the form of individual buildings. One long building will mark the end of the industrial area. The commercial premises on the open-plan semi-basement floor are topped with floors of offices, spread across two blocks. Four residential buildings will provide a total of 27 rental apartments that face out on three sides. The commercial building includes a communal area bordering the central outdoor plaza for the residential complex. With abundant trees, this will provide an inviting place to linger.
