Extra Attico storey in Zurich’s Wiesenstrasse
In Wiesenstrasse in Zurich, we acted as the general contractor for the renovation of an existing building, to which we then also added an extra storey. The property was first stripped back to its supporting structure. The extra storey has created three additional 60 m2 flats and one 53 m2 flat. Since the building in question shares a stairwell with the neighbouring building, completing the construction work without disturbing the tenants there too much proved a major challenge. This was overcome in part by completing a large amount of prefabrication of the elements at our plant, which shortened the actual construction time. Since the newly created roof terrace was to be open to the residents of both buildings, it was necessary to create an access route to the terrace from the stairwell of the neighbouring building.
