MIXED DEVELOPMENT – RESIDENTIAL – SHOPS – RETIREMENT HOME
mixed development cully station – 3rd prize
The mixed residential/retail building for the Swiss railways is located on a surprising site. Though situated along the railway tracks, the site still provides an exceptional location between the lake and the vineyards.
The only possible building depth (north-south) is considerable and requires a special typology of the residential surfaces.
By introducing patios, it is possible to take advantage of the qualities of the site without the nuisances of the quays. Furthermore, the particular arrangement of patios and stairs frees up almost the entire ground floor for shops.
The single frame, from top to bottom, is based on the dimensions of both rooms and parking spaces.
