Mixed-use Urban Quarter

Hosoya Schaefer Architects AG, Zürich


Competition 2018, 1st prize

Salina Raurica East, Pratteln

The new quarter is growing step by step from the agricultural landscape of Pratteln, which serves as an atmospheric model and creates a special atmosphere with rural qualities. The Salinenallee ties the quarter and its public open spaces together as a backbone, and through the new Siebenjurtenpark it interlocks with the existing Längiquartier. The new quarter will be built entirely from prefabricated wooden modules and points to an emission-free future.

The park will be realized step by step and will create an attractive open space even before the development of the neighborhood. The «Quartiers Start-Up» serves the socio-spatial activation of the place and increase the attractiveness of the site for all development phases. It is on-site planning, marketing and construction site infrastructure, as well as a community center, providing a venue for events and a permanent exhibition of the planning process.

At the same time, the “Gateway to Switzerland” is being developed as a commercial district along the motorway. In conjunction with the residential district, it should stand out from the purely technical-industrial developments in the environment and convey a special, ecological and small-scale character on a human scale, which stands for the other Switzerland and strengthens the identity of the business location.
