Baufeld B, the new building complex in the center of Zurich, shows a fascinating, architectural and high-end ambition for this prominent location in the city. Giving a special character to the new vibrant city destination, the specific geometry of the complex creates a unique appearance and forms a characteristic representation of not only the Corbusier Platz, but also for the passers that arrive at Zurich Central Station. Our design approach is motivated by the desire to blend the new building in the relaxed human environment that characterizes the vibrant inner city of Zurich, whilst at the same time presenting an iconic architectural manifestation. The proposal combines traditional, sustainable and timeless building materials with a modern elegant and iconic presence. The careful defined building with a unique atmosphere to both office environment and the bustling promenade below.
