Without being considered a remarkable project of these renowned architects, the pre-existing volume nevertheless presents a facade whose mode nature, and characteristics of the authors, highlight distinct constructive elements. The project reinterprets the original architectural language and its structural bays through a compositional diagnosis. This detailed analysis has allowed us to understand full and empty spaces, proportions, alignments or overhangs. Thus, the molded prefabricated concrete posts placed on the fourth-floor balconies are in continuity with the existing facades and bring down the loads. The new windows of the elevation open onto the entire frame, offering more light to the new apartments, but are similar in their asymmetrical design to those of the existing ones. The sixth floor, set back, continues this intention, with more contemporary materiality and expression.The apartments added on the fifth level are based on the existing typology, four small mono-oriented apartments and one on the corner. In contrast, on the top floor, a larger apartment has a terrace with a view of the city. Finally, a “rooftop” for the whole building is placed on the roof of the last level, with a 360° view.

A specialty store for craftsmen and a bistro are bringing additional life to the area. Context. The MHNZ is part of the TechCluster development project, which is transforming the V factory site into a future-oriented location for urban industry in several phases. Industrial processes are verticalized, new companies are offered space, and other urban uses, even apartments, are made possible.

Façade. A cladding made of wooden lamellas serves as privacy and glare protection and takes into account the desire for the greatest possible sustainability. Divided per floor, with alternating orientations and assembled from small and wide slats, the lamellas give a different impression from each direction, changing from opaque to transparent. The façade appears finely structured and seems to start moving when passing by. About 100 m3 of fir or spruce from Swiss forests were used for the 2’254 m2 wooden surface. The facade is supplemented by anti-glare protection and safety cables in the parapet area. The Bridge. The footbridge swings away from the building as an extension of the balcony lead in an elegant S-curve girder across the street and connect the TechCluster area with the drive-up area on the first floor. The bridge is a three-span frame with spans of 20, 31, and 13 m and required extremely precise formwork to ensure the slender shape. The prestressed beam has a T-section with variable height and width. The prestressed bridge girder is connected to the columns, the foundation of the stairway, and the building to form a monolithic framework.Concrete/ Structure. The base of the building up to the ceiling of the sales floor is made of in-situ concrete and insulated on the inside. On top of this stands a steel structure with column-free, sloping, and horizontal parking spaces that spiral upwards. Its loads are transferred to the distinctive V-shaped supports via a surrounding beam, which in the façade plane moved slightly inwards giving the building a certain lightness. The ramps on the lower and upper floors reflect the swing of the pedestrian bridge and, like the lift tower and shaft, are articulated with matrices.

With the new assembly room underneath a wide overhanging roof, the “Stoffel” buildings have now been given an opening towards the street to welcome visitors. The concrete roof, designed along the lines of the existing exterior elevations, creates the required sheltered outdoor area leading to a square which acts as a central meeting point. Consequently, this is also where separation from the main hall creates an everyday common room for the residents. Now accessible from the existing residential building, the hall is where the expressivity of this architecturally designed extension can be fully experienced.In line with the existing architecture, the hall has been constructed in exposed concrete. The coffered ceiling lends significance and a festive, almost sacred expression to the hall, balancing out the disparity of the four sides, two of which are closed off while the other two feature floor-to-ceiling glazing. The space is illuminated by skylights to contrast the heaviness of the concrete. Different artificial lighting is used to create various moods depending on the use of the hall. The existing foyer has been complemented and modernized while retaining the materials and colors characteristic of its beginnings dating back to 1980.
