Affordable Housing in Zurich by Gus Wüstemann Architects
Affordable Housing in Zurich is a minimalistic apartment design has a high-quality living on a low budget. The main interior materials are concrete and wood, designed by Gus Wüstemann Architects, follows an ethical code in architecture, creating spaces free of social status or connotation.
The project is targeting interventions in light and space and at the same time reducing common standards, however, the minimal design brings a high-quality lifestyle without any additional economical effort. Sustainability might still not be something individual cares that much, but more for the community is becoming increasingly important.
Using wooden boards as sliding door, shelves, window frames, and cabinets create contrast with raw concrete. The TV stand was formed with the concrete. Pre-installed furniture is not a new term, but the concrete shape seating and side table are quite unique.
