For the redevelopment of the Andritz-Site in Kriens we propose to preserve and enhance its identity as a production site. The rationality of industrial production processes informs the spatial order with its new programs: a functional yet highly permeable layout that establishes an open frame for interaction. The ground floor houses a variety of workshops, exhibition- and event spaces that encourage manufacturing businesses to make use of a shared infrastructure and benefit from public exposure. The upper floors house apartments with varying degrees of collectivity, self-organization and flexibility of living and working.
