Interior city room: 1938 Herman Herter
The tramshed sits in the center of Zürich between housing and sunken train tracks. The ashfalt of the street enters the building with the tram tracks that once inside the building disperse across the vast floor. It is an interior room at the scale of the city with the materiality and directness of the city. The space is beautifully lit by monitor rooflights and flourescent tubes. Inspite of its scale and direct design the large building sits quite comfortably on the residential street.
