Residential Building Confignon

Selective Competition, Confignon, 2019
Weyell Zipse & Hörner with Truwant+Rodet and Philippe Convercey Landscape Architect

The municipality of Confignon, a suburb of Geneva, is planning the construction of a replacement building for urban apartments in the immediate vicinity of the village square. The project is the result of an examination of the question of what living in rural areas means today. The majority of residential typologies in Confignon consist of detached single-family houses or small terraced houses. Neighborly relationships and spatial references to the landscape are characterized by this. The housing types benefit from multi-sided orientations, and terraced houses are accessed via shared staircases as communal threshold spaces.
