Setz Architektur and Immo Treier AG completed four residential buildings in Möriken based on the swisswoodhouse® concept, which was originally developed by Bauart Architekten and Planner AG and Renggli AG.
The residential complex in Möriken has been developed based on a modular space concept from Renggli AG: the swisswoodhouse system. Setz Architektur adopted it in three multi-family buildings: one in timber and another two in hybrid construction (with wooden external walls and facades). The fourth building is realized in hybrid construction, yet with a different floor plan concept. These four buildings together form a U-shape to adapt to the constraint of the site. This layout also creates a large outdoor space for the interaction of the residents inside the garden pavilion, playground, and playground equipment. Through direct access from the staircase, the garden, the outdoor and indoor space flow into each other.
This apartment building concept comprises 35 rental and condominium apartments. The modular space concept facilitates the realization of apartments with different sizes, including 1-, 2-, 3-, or 4-room apartments, providing a possibility for the integration of different social groups, including individuals, couples, and families.
The buildings realized an optimized energy performance level by following the Minergie-P-Eco standard. The solar-generated electricity, an Energy Consumption Manager, and a high ratio of energy use from self-generation form important contributions to the Swiss energy transition.
