Conversion of a historical building
The Wolfsberg, built in 1910 to house the Wolfensberger Graphische Kunstanstalt and the Wolfsberg Kunstsalon, was widely regarded as an important address for well-known artists on the Zurich art scene. The company’s departure from the listed building presented a unique opportunity for a full renovation of the exterior and a partial one of the interior. The former exhibition halls, the printing shop and the studios were converted into lofts and the existing apartments completely modernized to meet present-day standards. As a result of close cooperation with the authorities responsible for heritage preservation, the historical ambience was retained and radiates not only from the façade but throughout the entire entrance areas, the staircases and up into the upper lofts with the gallery. Because of the lack of parking facilities, the Wolfsberg building was provided with an underground car park accessed via the adjacent building, which called for an extremely complex static solution.
