Zurich, Switzerland

Forster & Uhl Architects

The Delphinstrasse apartment building is located in the city centre of Zurich, in the 8th district, a district characterised by its historic buildings.

In this urban context, the Delphinstrasse building strongly adopts the formal language of the neighbouring buildings. It is divided into three parts, the base as a mezzanine, the central section and the mansard roof. The porcelain stoneware slabs on the façade, Listelos Plus by Tempio, give the house a high-quality, urban expression.

The stepped balconies are an additional design element that breaks up the structure and adds volume to the building. The façade is thus exposed and allows for an orderly and harmonious design with window openings and projections.
