Private Garden C., Zürich

The Haus zum Brunnen is situated on a slope in the Fluntern quarter of Zurich as a jewel of the beginning of the twentieth century. It presents itself with its simple grandeur and size and is inserted harmonically into the surroundings of the Hochstrasse. In this context, the building at Hochstrasse 59, erected at the end of the nineteenth century, leads more of a “wallflower” existence and stands in the shadow of the dominant Haus zum Brunnen. The aim is to transform both elements—the Haus zum Brunnen and Hochstrasse 59—into one design unit. Important cornerstones of the concept for the surroundings here are the planned pavilion and rock formation.
