Housing development in sustainable, prefabricated wood construction.
Planning 2017

This project is a response to the rising demand for diverse living spaces with various usage possibilities in Rapperswil-Jona. The loose arrangement of the individual buildings and the permeable green space reflect the residential typology of the surrounding environment. The 118 apartments are distributed across six multiple-occupancy houses with differing typologies. Differing degrees of privacy are offered depending on the respective access system. As a building with eight apartments per storey and courtyard access, house A on the roundabout offers a community-focused selection of homes. In contrast, houses E and F respectively feature two and three apartments per storey and are in a quiet location to the south for those who prefer privacy.
