Darlington Meier Architekten operate confidently on a variety of scales – from housing to urban-planning interventions. The Zurich office’s sense of the effect of classic concepts characterises its designs, as do its harmonious use of materials and the goal of creating locations with a specific identity. The architects are clearly influenced by Peter Zumthor, in whose practice they both worked as Project Managers before founding their own office in 2004. Their design for the Mathilde Escher Home for disabled adults in Zurich is an example of confident urban-planning placement that is equally able to ensure an agreeable residential atmosphere.
