Double single family house Frohburgstrasse, Zurich

Description of property

A house all of a piece, constructed monolithically in concrete, cubically modelled with projections and recesses. The slightly gestural structure with its uniform, evenly placed openings remains calm and modest, evoking the image of a stone sculpture in a green garden. Seen as a unit from the outside, the inside of the house is revealed to be made up of double nested apartments. These both extend over four floors, oriented alternately in all four directions, thus giving the inhabitants the feeling of living in a solitary unit.
