Developing real values.

 
 
From Warehouse to Residential Loft
One of the first Kamata projects were the lofts G48 in the Sulzer complex, Winterthur. 27 lofts and approx. 600 m2 of retail store surface were created
in one of the most characteristic buildings of the former factory grounds.
The former main warehouse that dates back to the year 1912 is a monu-
mental construction with an iron skeleton and a visible brick façade. The
building is shaped as a soft rounding, which runs parallel to the area of
the Winterthur train station.
The industrial character of the warehouse G48, which has been scheduled
as an ancient monument, has been preserved. These historical elements
underwent a moderate extension and were combined with modern accents.
The transformation lead to an appealing mix of work and residential space.
