New building for the St Jakob Foundation in Zurich. The foundation provides employment opportunities for disabled people and aids integration into the work environment. Known mainly for its baked goods, the foundation also has furniture making, electronics and packing departments.

The design responds to the collection of structures and spaces that follow the line of the viaduct as it cuts through Zurich West. Two larger floors at the bottom of the building accommodate a bakery, with a large window facing onto the street, a café serving the foundation’s products to the public, and the packing department. A stack of four smaller floors accommodate the other facilities above, with a staff canteen and broad loggia on the top floor.
