The project “Squint” revels an economical solution for 250 apartments on the former industrial site Micafil. The project summarizes commercial use and parking lots in a large-scale building at the entrance and creates a striking transition at the interface between the railway, the road, and the industrial area. The serial composition of the residential buildings breaks through continuous axes, creates exciting closeness, diagonally flowing spaces and develops an independent, coherent form. The PTT (Swiss Federal Post) and SBB (Swiss Railways) invited 7 architect offices for this study.
