Camenzind Evolution AG | K.I.S.S.K.I.S.S. is a boldly realised residential concept on Badenerstrasse in Zurich presenting 46 maisonnette apartments with striking interior designs. The tenant is given the choice between three exemplary apartment types offering individual experiences. This creates a whole new living concept enabling the choice between apartments based on identical layouts but with their own character, carrying names such as CLASSIC, INDUSTRIAL and FUNKY.

The two-storey spaces in the maisonettes offer an imposing stage bringing out the distinctive characteristics of the apartment types. The FUNKY apartment stands out with its porthole window in the bathroom and a huge graffiti graphic on the open plan living room main wall, while clear and contemporary exposed concrete, stainless steel in the kitchen and plywood panels add their own character to the INDUSTRIAL apartment. K.I.S.S. occupies a striking corner plot and thereby creates an independent building sculpture.

The shiny almost leather like façade with slightly tilted metal window frames gives the building its unmistakable identity. The building opens up towards the south and the sun with floor height windows and colourful individually designed balconies.
