Smart architecture creates added value

Modern forms of work and ecological sustainability

The new building on the ETH Hönggerberg campus will be the new home for student associations, the Student Project House and ETH Entrepreneurship. Its aim is to combine student initiatives and projects right through to spin-offs under one roof. In open offices, multi-purpose rooms, workshops and meeting areas, the young talents will exchange ideas across disciplines and organizations, fuel each other with ideas and find new collaborations. Entrepreneurial activity and craftsmanship are given space as well as student creativity and sociability. The diverse interactions contribute to the fact that the new building becomes an inspiring and pulsating ecosystem in which the young talents can gain irreplaceable experience and take their first steps towards entrepreneurship.

  • The architecture enables flexible use of space and promotes exchange
  • Energy concept and photovoltaic system
  • Regional wood serves the sustainable use of building materials
  • Green roof terrace and outside space create a natural balance
