Completion of the building shell in Winterthur
Known respectively as ‘Bigboy’ and ‘Tender’, the 15- and 10-storey buildings in the new Lokstadt, a former industrial district in Winterthur where the workshops of the Swiss Locomotive and Machine Works (SIM) were once located, comprise around 210 rental and owner-occupied apartments. The two buildings are connected by a five-storey-high block that accommodates a mix of commercial and residential units. This block flanks a long yard, adjoined by the old draisine workshop building, which will house a kindergarten, primary school and conference rooms for the neighbouring hotel. The scheduled completion date is mid-2023.
