Lately a large number of competitions for transform railway lands in Switzerland have been organised. In NEXT. COLLECTIVE HOUSING in progress we include two winning proposals of competitions inside this context. In this case, the train tracks separate two very distinct interventions included in the same competition. On one hand, several blocks of row houses occupy the more organised area located behind the Basel-Dreispitz station. On the other hand, we focused on a compact urban building which holds different uses. Both its volumetry and facade respond literally to the programme that is located inside.
