In the century before last, the railway had a decisive influence on urban development in the industrial district of Zurich. Trains drove over railway embankments, which acted as impenetrable bars in the way of the expansion of the area. In 1894 the dams were replaced by viaducts. The viaduct arches became available for rental in 2011 and trendy shops, restaurants and start-up companies moved in. The women’s magazine Annabelle chose the location as their new office and event space in 2020.
Project: dusky pink and soft green are the main components of the color concept of the project. The colors embody the feminine touch of the magazine and create a contrast to the rather industrial location with high ceilings and old stone walls.
The kitchen was adorned with Vernici tiles by Sartoria in Berry daiquiri and is a statement piece within the whole concept. The tiles were combined with warm oak shelves and soft green accessories throughout the kitchen.
