Vetsch Nipkow. Sulzer factory area. Winterthur. Switzerland

September 17, 2012

Vetsch Nipkow. Sulzer factory area. Winterthur. Switzerland

Until recently, the premises conjured up the golden era of Swiss mechanical engineering: intact production facilities, an abundance of casting tools, steel parts and warehousing installations, a diesel engine as a monument, and enormous craneways in the midst of monstrous factory halls. Strolling through the distinctive open spaces and lofty halls, the odour of oily bare steel parts still dominates, the noise is still remarkable in some places, and the chaos is considerable. In other parts, tranquillity has already taken hold, and everything is still in place as if the spaces had become a theatre stage. Aware of the fact that the atmosphere of past times is on the verge of vanishing, the architects have systematically transferred the inner relationships between places and spaces, objects, structures and textures from the industrial age, to the new design level of the present. A new atmosphere is emerging. The Sulzer premises are to be utilised for mixed purposes. Therefore, flexibility within the architectural structures and the open spaces is an important criterion.
