YEAR | 2021 - ongoing
LOCATION | Schaan
COLLABORATION | Hansjörg Hilti
CLIENT | HPZ
HPZ is a well-established organization dedicated to providing education, therapy, workshops, and residential support for individuals with special needs in the region of Liechtenstein.
Our collaboration commenced with the successful development of the Birkahof complex in Mauren, which includes the assisted living facility known as Birkahus. Building upon this achievement, our team, along with Hansjörg Hilti and HPZ, is now undertaking the creation of a similar but distinct sibling facility in Schaan. While maintaining a modular approach, we aim to adapt the communal living concept to a more centralized typology. This project marks the next phase of our collective efforts.
Speaking of sustainable construction in the middle of the Alps we often rely on wood. This modular timber system developed in conversation with the wood construction engineer proved to make an enjoyable environment for its residents and staff in Mauren. While the trees grow back sipping on some of the carbon dioxides from the atmospherical cocktail, we are exploring these modules further. The urban layout is set in stone and we keep developing its architecture.
