This building, designed in 2006 by Staufer & Hasler office, appears as one of those bold and purist concrete constructions so typical in Swiss contemporary architecture panorama. What differentiates Brandhaus II (this is the name of the project) from other housing buildings is that this one lacks windows and is conceived to be set on fire. And to add to the masochism of it, the plans are designed to harden the escape of its inhabitants. (text from the socks-studio)
