Limmattal Residence

Refurbishment and Extension of a Single-Family Residence, 2010

Attached to another residence through a single-story, shed-like structure, the existing single-family home no longer met its residents’ spatial needs.

The addition of a new kitchen on the north side of the home provides for a large living room that now features a west-facing window. An open-plan kitchen and dining area engender more spacious interiors.

The covered exterior entry area has been renovated and incorporated into the addition. The exterior aluminum cladding, which softly mirrors the surroundings, lends the home a protective sheath, while the warm cloak of wood at the entry area welcomes and enfolds those who enter the home.
