Playful façades

The three apartment buildings in Winterthur delineate a courtyard set with old trees, but still feature a certain openness. The façade has a multifaceted character, with split wood/metal windows from Huber Fenster AG which emphasize the façade’s individuality. The bottoms are screwed in place, at the top they open. Inside they are painted white and outside, brown. The windows take the noise situation into account: they all have higher noise protection. All apartments are also wheelchair accessible, and their thresholds were supplied by Huber Fenster AG.
