Richti-Areal Baufeld III
Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani hat in der Tradition der Stadt des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts ein neues, urbanes Quartier geschaffen. Innerhalb dieses Systems steht das Baufeld III, welches sich um einen städtischen Hof organisiert. Dabei verdichtet sich der Kopf des dreieckigen, gemischt genutzten Baukörpers um eine innere Halle, welche den mehrspännigen Abschluss erschliesst. Raue wie feine, geometrisch gegliederte Verputzarten nobilitieren die Einfachheit der äusseren Gestalt.

Vittorio Lampugnani's novel take on an urban district draws on the cities of the 19th century. Laid out as a city block around an urban courtyard, Site III is primarily configured into two apartments per floor, accessed street-side from a stairwell. The front-to-back floor plan enables both a courtyard and street view. Only the apartments at the apex of the building complex are accessed via a central multi-story atrium entered from the courtyard. On the exterior, alternating rough and smooth geometric plasterwork enhances the straightforward facade. The mesh-like appearance of the rough plaster surfaces as well as the window details evoke the wire mesh fences of earlier community gardens, while the natural stone border ennobles the stark character and form of the building structure.
