Micro City Structure

Urban Do It Yourself is the motto of this beautiful apartment in Zurich. The area works like a city within a city, and provides everything you need for your daily needs in the neighborhood. Socializing in the public area, supporting each other and enjoying the comfort of a micro city structure is the lifestyle you get to live at Zollfreilager. 


The cultural background of this area shows itself in the architectural way that combines & integrates the old structure with new and modern techniques. A modern way to appreciate history, a revival of the patina which gives the surface of the building its charm. We took our inspiration from that.


This complex was built & specialized for a young audience. They like to combine classics with new self-built-furniture, which gives their home a personal character. This unique way to recycle old material - with a history - to something new represents the soul of Zollfreilager.
