Since the successes of architects are in most cases closely linked to the work of the engineers at their side, we are very delighted that two of our projects are among the winners of the “best architects 20” awards. At the end of June, the entry “station and station square St. Gallen” by giuliani.hönger architects as well as the “Meilen municipal building” by the Blättler Dafflon Architects and Horisberger Wagen Architects workgroup received the prestigious award in the category “Public Buildings”. In future, both projects may adorn themselves with the blue star, which has been awarded since 2006 and is known as a “seal of quality for outstanding architectural achievement”. We congratulate the prize-winning architects.
The varied redesign of the station square with the arrival hall, pedestrian underpasses, bus roofs and the repair of the station building as well as the complex reconstruction of the municipal building in Meilen together with the newly built spacious underground car park are successful examples of successful interdisciplinary cooperation. There is even double joy about the Meilener project being awarded. Our façade planners had the opportunity to significantly contribute to the success of the building.
