Inside HDPF

1st prize in Mittelfeldstrasse competition



HDPF wins the invited competition at Mittelfeldstrasse in Küsnacht. Plans are in place to realize a new multi-family house with 15 rental apartments and an attractive surrounding with lush vegetation. The architecture of the project is characterized by the surrounding metal railings and the restrained, monochromatic materialisation. Inside, flexible spatial sequences fan out to the south.

Invited competition Rüttimann Areal Siebnen



HDPF has been invited to develop an urban planning concept with identity-forming character in a study commission on the site of the former Rüttimann furniture factory in Siebnen.

BMW e-drive


HDPF focuses on sustainable mobility with the BMW i3. The new vehicles are odorless and emission-free - the perfect companions in the city and surrounding area for our employees.

2nd prize in competition for Riedmatt school



HDPF lands in second place in the open competition for the expansion of the Riedmatt school complex in Zug. In particular, the jury assessed the volumetric further thinking of the exisiting buildings as positive.

Excerpt from the jury report: "The project authors complement the current school building with an angular new building, which fits snugly into the existing building like a fitting piece. In the way in which this is formulated, the new configuration creates a uniform building with four re-entrant corners. Four different designed outdoor spaces are connected to each of these. The main entrances to the primary school and the kindergarten are from the north on Quartierstrasse Riedmatt. "

5th prize in competition for Winterthur penitentiary



HDPF lands in 5th place in the two-stage general planner competition for the extension of the Winterthur penitentiary. In particular, the jury is able to convince the compactness and inner organization of the first expansion stage.

Excerpt from the jury report: "The authors choose the approach of readable continuing construction: The visually two-authored district building is topped up by an attic with a contrasting façade and a three-storey rectangular building is placed at the back of the railway. The fifth floor as a room expansion on the district building is well conceivable despite its inland location in the area despite adjacent Quartierhaltungszone, the lateral recesses are only justified by building law. The new prison building appears pleasantly restrained by its three-storey appearance."

Outside HDPF




Architectural photography is now one of the most important mediums for recording, documenting, communicating and sharing architecture and constructed space. It is able to convey the dimensions and character of a place, as well as the emotions associated with it. An architectural publication would be unthinkable without such images. DIVISARE Books presents Swiss photographer Valentin Jeck’s photo essay of our Meister House.

Mobiles Wohnen am Vulkanplatz



On the Geerenweg site in Altstetten, the foundation for affordable and ecological apartments - Einfach Wohnen SEW is realizing a temporary settlement with 33 apartments. In addition to an innovative mix of tenants, the project enables affordable rent and living according to energetically and ecologically exemplary standard. It is expected that the apartments will be rented by Jugendwohnnetz JUWO to young people in training from autumn 2018 onwards and will be accommodated by the Zurich based organization for asylum seekers AOZ.

In a joint venture with the Austrian architect Johannes Kaufmann and the site manager Urs Schläpfer, HDPF was able to win the total contractor submission. The mobile system is created in a modular design. The wood modules are prefabricated at the production site and assembled on site.
