Scaffoldin Tower Wolkenwerk 


2019, Zürich

 Wood is not only the right choice of material for residential and commercial buildings, it also offers ideal properties for temporary buildings. With a height of 70 metres, the scaffolding towers are the tallest wooden structures in Switzerland.

 

Hotel The Chedi 


2014, Andermatt

 "Andermatt Swiss Alps" is a year-round holiday destination in the heart of the Swiss Alps. The project comprises six 4 and 5-star hotels, around 500 apartments in 42 buildings and 25 exclusive chalets.

 

New Galilei Tower, Heureka 


1991, Zürich-Brunau

 The round 12-story exhibition tower made of timber, diameter and height 50 m each, formed the opposite pole to the high-tech tents of the exhibition. A skeleton with circular masts and semicircular pliers was chosen as the main supporting structure. For the connection of the pliers, it was necessary to develop a new type of heavy-duty connecting material, which had to meet high demands with requirements such as load-bearing capacity, flexibility (round timber) and favorable procurement. Timber can certainly be used for more than just archaic buildings, yet here it was the welcome backdrop for a historical research exhibition.

  • New Construction of Observation Tower Altberg, Dänikon

    1st prize at the project competition Turm Altberg 2008! A timber tower with palisade-like columns on the ground plan diagonals, a staircase opening upwards and a roofed viewing platform at a good 30 m height. Already in 1895 there was a lookout tower about 10 - 12 m high on the barely forested hilltop of the Altberg. This tower disappeared before 1917. What happened to it is no longer traceable today.
