Europaallee 21Edit profile
The new business complex 'Europaallee 21' comprises four office buildings designed by Max Dudler, Gigonjeuyer and David Chipperlield Architects. It is situated in the new urban district 'Europaallee', which is being developed adjacent to Zurich's main train station. The mastorplan for the area was developed by Kees Christiaanse.
The office building by David Chipperfield Architects (Haus Ireischuetzgasse) is defined by its rational floor plan, which provides a maximum degree of flexibility through column-free interiors. This rationality is reflected in the facade, while being softened through the floor-height facade bands which meander in opposing directions. The resulting bas-relief appearance of the facade is intensified by printed synthetic mesh with different levels of perforation in the external glass panels.
