Muehlebachstreet, Zurich

Although the footprint of the corner apartment building is kept to a minimum, its size is increased on the upper floors with balconies and cube-shaped extensions.

The clever, back-ventilated façade system utilises the aluminium bands as the mounting point for the substructure and railings
