Reinhardstrasse Apartment Builiding, Zurich

Like force vectors, the apartment building’s irregular spatial structure pushes the projecting bay windows and balconies outward and interlocks with the urban space.

The flats are entered via a central corridor from which the rooms fan out. A living room measuring over 40 m2 and illuminated on three sides contains a freestanding kitchen placed in the room as a work of carpentry. A large bay window or balcony connects the rooms outwards and spacious terraces extend the duplex penthous... More

Gentlemen's apartment

Located in a grand Art Nouveau building, the apartment spans across its top two floors, including an adapted attic. Open AD took on its complete transformation from floor plan to furniture and fixtures. Inspired by the location, history of the building and the client’s lifestyle, we created an apartment that combines the old and new. An apartment of playful yet elegant contrasts. Historically, the front-facing interiors would have been more lavish, while the back of the building was reserved for subtle staff quarters. This is a contrast we chose to preserve with shared living quarters on the street side and bedrooms towards the back. We also ensured a change in atmosphere and aesthetics between both floors.
