Brandschenkestrasse, Zürich

Brandschenkestrasse 47

Short description

Overall design and project management in order to deliver maximum value at the premises – with assistance from the acquisition stage right through to handover of the keys.

The project

During the acquisition phase, the 1970s office building was examined in a structure analysis and various possible courses of action were developed in a two-stage structure strategy. This meant that the product could be optimised, the residual value maximised and the building purchased by the institutional investor. 

The building was renovated both inside and out. The renovation included all eleven floors in a building measuring 27.19 m in height with a usable area of 2,646 m². Existing office spaces were converted to form a total of five apartments boasting a very high, comfortable standard of renovation.
