We are a studio for architecture and urban design and work passionately on a wide range of projects: From private conversions, to public infrastructure buildings, through to urban plans. Our core competence is the design, strategic development and implementation of holistically sustainable and high-quality spaces (→ more)

We are one of 10 teams selected to participate in the selective competition for the new recycling center of the city of Zurich. The new building is to be implemented as a pilot project for the reuse of building components and with the use of BIM methodology. We are looking forward to working together with Sumami, Drees & Sommer, Amstein + Walthert, Aschwanden Partner and Sima Breer Landschaftsarchitektur!
An article about our research project was published in the online magazine espazium.ch (photo: Dominique Meienberg).
Last week we celebrated the topping out of the recycling center in Zug. The handover of the head building to the Brockenhaus of the Women's Centre and to GGZ@Work of the Gemeinnützige Gesellschaft Zug should take place in August. Then the furnishing work will be done. The Ökihof is scheduled to open in December.
This week the spring semester has started at the Department of Architecture at ETH Zurich. Michael Wagner teaches the lecture series 'Urban Design' for Bachelor students, and he's pleased to welcome so many students in the lecture hall again instead of on-screen.
The kickoff event for the Bachelor's program in architecture took place today at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. Michael Wagner will teach the seminar 'Exploring the Abyss' together with Prof. Angelika Juppien in the spring semester of 2022. The students will deal with urban spaces that are perceived as toxic and examine their perceived characteristics using dioramas they have built themselves.

Our contribution to the planner selection process of the City of Zurich for the refurbishment of a residential and commercial building on Limmattalstrasse in Zurich-Höngg was awarded 1st place! Excerpt from the jury report: "The team shows a very good understanding of the central issues of the task: The proposal systematically prioritises low-cost interventions as a design driver and improves the cramped spaces. The project idea has a big impact with small interventions and cleverly uses the potential of the existing building by sharpening previously unused qualities. (...) The panel congratulates Wagner Vanzella for their careful and innovative contribution ..." We look forward to working on this project together!
Our contribution to the competition for the extension of the Muoshof school complex in Malters was awarded 3rd place. We congratulate the team of Bürgi Burkhard von Euw Architekten on their first place.
Based on its Vision and Strategy 2050 for spatial development and with our support, the Municipality of Lichtensteig has launched the Building Renewal Programme. This programme supports owners to improve the quality of construction, increase the value of properties and achieve ecological improvements.
Today Michael Wagner gave an introductory lecture and a workshop on photography of urban landscapes for the students of the BA Visual Communication - Camera Arts at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Emmenbrücke.
