Extra storey, Müllerstrasse in Zurich

We used our prefabricated timber construction method to create three new storeys with a gross floor space of 600 m² on Müllerstrasse in Zurich. The existing joists were reinforced and could thus be retained (wood-concrete composite floor). Solid wood was used for the intermediate floors. Häring AG was also tasked with preparing a fire safety concept and providing the entire external envelope. This comprised prefabricated façade units and roof modules with excellent heat insulation, which paved the way for a lightweight, earthquake-proof design and rapid assembly.
