Effretikon study contract for construction sites E1 and E2 - 1st prize

Building plots E1 and E2 are part of the master plan "Zentrumentwicklung Bahnhof West" and were the subject of a two-phase study contract.

On the two construction sites in the center of Effretikon, commercial space on the first floor, office space and residential areas are planned in addition to a major retailer.

Along Rikonerstrasse, a row of trees, a front zone along the first floor uses and two squares are planned in relation to the market square. Hinterbühlstrasse on the station side will be designed as a meeting zone with green islands. There are roof gardens on the second floor of both buildings, which are recognizable as a continuous area from the upper floors. The shared roof area offers a circular path, an ecologically valuable green space as well as play and recreational facilities. Each studio apartment has its own private outdoor area with access to the common center.
