By April 2021, the building works on one of the last remaining vacant sites of the “Glattpark” construction project in Opfikon (area right next to Zurich) has been completed. Monoplan was responsible for the planning of the new building owned by provider JOYN Serviced Living. As well as 343 apartments and 104 rooms, there are be two bars, a gym and a restaurant with seatings in the courtyard. A glass groove in the façade accentuates the entrance area, the vertical access facilities and the top-floor bar with access to a roof terrace. An interior, circular corridor provides access to the rooms and apartments.
There exist 16 different types of accommodation, starting with a simple hotel room at around 20–23 m² with an integrated kitchenette, stretching all the way through to fully accessible apartments with around 43 m². The interior design and service aspects create an ambience that appeals specifically to guests staying for longer periods in the city, and makes them feel at home. In addition to the excellent public transport links, one finds 73 new parking spaces in the underground car park.
The excavation works began in March 2019.
