THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
Coming from Zurich, Hurlemann Studio is one of the most respected and well-known architecture/interior design firms, and the vision behind the firm is impressive and rich in history. Today, we’re proud to present you with 10 of the firm’s amazing and astonishing projects.
In his work, Stephan Hurlemann looks for designs that illustrate and enable a positive future. His furniture, products, architectural projects, and installations are holistically conceived and sustainable. In doing so, the architect and designer enjoy finding simple design solutions for complex questions.
Stephan Hurlemann sees his task as a designer in recognizing new needs and requirements, and in meeting them with innovative ideas. In 2019 he designed his own Studio in Zurich based on his spatial concept Dancing Office.
In this dynamic work environment, he and his team research the ways in which digitization, climate change, pandemics, changing hierarchies, and the War of Talents affect our daily lives. With his concepts, Hurlemann wants to show his customers’ perspectives and make them fit for the future. Each project is unique and requires individual answers.
The small coffee corners in four of the core zones were spatially extended and expanded into larger meeting areas. Since the structure of these spaces is identical, Stephan Hurlemann decided to create four similar layouts with different moods. In doing so, the artworks present in the spaces were to be style-defining. “My aim was to let the furniture, objects, colors, and materials enter into an exciting dialogue with the artworks. This gives each room its own distinctive character,” says Stephan Hurlemann.
DS-21 brings together the ease and comfort of a seating area with the elegance of high legs. It has the appearance of a floating sculpture, a raised seating area, and can be used in both private and semi-public spaces. The design from Stephan Hurlemann is timeless, though its proportions have a new, fresh appearance. The sofa’s architectural structure stems from a metal frame that surrounds the individual cushions and appears to carry them with ease. The more luxurious elements counterbalance the stark frame.
In 2015–2016 Hürlemann designed the interior fit-out of two then unsold apartments inside the Löwenbräu Black building. For this, an entirely new structure had to be worked into the already completed building material. After Hurlemann devised layouts for both two-story loft apartments one was sold and the purchaser completed her own interior. The «New York» apartment, on the other hand, was entirely designed by Hurlemann – from the layout to cabinetmaking and material finishes.
Stephan Hurlemann and his team sculpted a space of 130m2 over two levels for a small family. The apartment has an open structure, in which only the child’s room and both bathrooms have swing doors. The parents’ room in the extension at the end of the hallway can be divided off as a quiet area, together with a bathroom and studio, thanks to sliding doors. Thanks to numerous inbuilt storage areas the apartment requires no further storage furnishing. On the ground floor, thus, a 13-meter long cupboard in smoked oak that can be accessed from either side divides the room from the hallway.
Hurlemann redesigned this private dwelling with a view of Zurich Lake from the 1970s so it became tailored to the needs of the new residents. The previously cell-like room structure gave way to an open sculpture of space. The arrangement of the spaces creates the degree of privacy required in each zone. Sliding doors enable additional divisions of the areas. Hürlemann led the choice of furnishing.
In 2011 our agency was commissioned by the Homburger corporate law firm to plan the interior fit-out of the firm’s new headquarters in the Prime Tower. A lounge, a library, and a relaxation area were to be designed, the spatial structures and furniture optimized. To make the firm‘s own brand culture perceptible in the rooms, SHW consciously staged the lawyers’ work rituals: reaching for a writing implement, for example, is celebrated with high-quality drawer inserts.
The Dancing Office encourages the team members to proactively adapt their work environment to their individual needs. There are two «dance floors» at their disposal. The bigger one can be parted into zones using noise protection curtains. Here, the territorial work stations of all employees can be found; all desks and chairs are equipped with wheels. The Phonebooth, also specifically developed by Hurlemann in this context, is mobile as well.
