stoosarchitekten complete the Trigon House in Switzerland
The Trigon House makes the end of a historical row of commercial
town houses of the beginning of the 20th century. It helps along to repair
and restore a confusing urban planning collision between historical
urban parts and ruthless urban interventions of the sixties.
The given triangular building area leads to unusual and surprising
floor plans and to a spatially very thrilling staircase hall, enhanced by
natural light infiltrating into the middle of the building. The outer concrete walls are slightly painted yellow, outside and inside. Artificial light is dominantly lighting up walls, which play the role of reflectors. The ground floor hosts a café, the first floor is a multipurpose space for cultural activities, connected to the neighbouring theatre / cinema and bar. Two office floors and a roof flat follow.
