Housing complex Im Stückler, Zurich Altstetten

The three buildings comprising the “Im Stückler” development replaced the previous housing estate from the 1950s. A circular road provides access to the building, whose bold red clinker façades are a defining characteristic of the neighbourhood.  
Cast aluminium signage at the house entrances echo the robust architectural style. Their matte surfaces reflect ambient light and change according to the time of day and the weather conditions.
