VOLPATOHATZ received a direct commission to design a new residential tower with small amount of commerical use on the ground level on 2’800 square meter of privately owned land in Birsfelden, Switzerland. The proposal includes converting an existing building, currently used for light manufacturing, into loft apartments. The all concrete tower uses structural blade to create privacy between apartment rooms and between tenants. It also provides shading with the use of roller blinds which glide along the sloped blades. Overhanging floor slabs also shades the facade.
