Fonderie, Fribourg

The six buildings planned will offer students and young adults great places to live in a central location. The foundry site is located on land with a rich history, directly adjacent to institutes of higher education and universities. There are plans to retain the characteristic architectural elements. Extensive stretches of green will take account of the location's original character as well as its striking topography. Access is via a recreational and meet-up zone at the foot of the building.
