Education center Horgen

The new school yard of the Horgen education center was created in cooperation with the architect Jonas Wüest. A pavilion and several large plant troughs with round benches have been added to the existing furniture made of "Landscape" elements from BURRI.

All parts have been developed and realized in close consultation with the architect. By using the landscape line as a connecting element, the harmonious fusion of existing and new elements succeeds.

BURRI was involved early on in the project as a technical consultant and implementer to ensure that this combination of the existing bench-table-bench combinations and the new elements was possible. The goal was to create an optimal use of the space for different purposes and to achieve a uniform overall picture. The system landscape is predestined for this. The conventional elements can be assembled into landscapes or are available as individual pieces. BURRI's round bench logic complements the linear design language and further expands the range of applications of Landscape.

Landscape with round shapes and steam-bent wooden slats are available as standard elements. In Horgen, BURRI custom-made the elements and mounted them directly on the special planters. The plant troughs and the pavilion were designed and manufactured by BURRI.
