The Green Room

xxxx Studio 29 architects has always been a fan of living green walls and roofs but here is a green room. Sited between office buildings in Neu-Oerlikon in Zurich is an enormous framed structure which is covered in rambling foliage creating a semi-private space which is used for outdoor gatherings such as theatre, movies and concerts. The frame has many levels with sun decks interspaced between stairwells – the very top providing a very enjoyable viewing platform of North Zurich. An unusual sight but a breath of fresh air in such industrial surroundings, weirdly enough it is very difficult to find as it’s set close to and cleverly mimics the shape of the neighbouring buildings.
