Densification Existing


“Densification is only a means to an end and not the primary goal. We need sustainably developing and resilient cities.


- Matthias Probst, Green Party Zurich Nord


On both sides, existing buildings are extended in order to densify without building complete new contructions. The underground floors of the office buildings are connected as to create one big basement garage. This transformes the spaces between the buildings into spaces that would allow future appropriations.
In the end of the time frame, the total housing surface equals what the city would have built on Thurgauerstrasse West.
