The historical quartier consists of four arsenals and a large central outdoor space and is situated on the edge of the city center of Uster.
A series of terraces, inspired by the military background of the area, will offer on the first floor a wide range of landscape rooms, in continuity with the semi-public areas of the new buildings.
Wooden foyers will mark the entrances and serve as terraces and lounges for the shops on the ground floor.
Framed by the arsenals, a new versatile public space will be characterized by a green area gradually dissolving into hard flooring, while on Berchtoldstrasse the existing trees will create a flexible room for events, market and and temporary parking.
