Rental housing Residenz Eisenerz is located in the town Sargans in Switzerland. The surrounding mountain landscape and local pinkish stone are one of the main inspirations shaping the project.
The rental apartment house is located in Sargans in the canton of St. Gallen in Switzerland, at the intersection of three wide valleys, where they create a fertile lowland between the otherwise steep peaks of the surrounding Alps. The Principality of Liechtenstein and famous ski resorts are in close proximity.
The original task was to reconstruct an old self build family house, which was already at the end of its life span and did not meet the requirements of the client. In agreement with the investor, his family and a structural engineer, it was decided that the house will be removed and a new project will be designed to suit the needs of the owner. An invited architectural competition was organized in order to find the best solution. We placed 1st in the competition and from 2016 on we started working on the next phases of the project.
