Felsenstieg, Schaffhausen , 2008, 2nd prize

Instead of filling the gaps along Lochstrasse like a dentist, the building site is “overprinted” with a group of four congruent building volumes. Familiar building lengths of the existing 1920s Karl Moser houses are taken as a reference, without denying their own time. The free geometry of the volumes enables economic access and circulation via a generous central staircase. The spaces in-between spread out an open area that varies between wide zones with views and intimate, densely planted areas.
