Name: Freudenau Mill
Designer: Furrer Jud Architekten
Location: Wil, Switzerland
Freudenau Mill is a minimalist house located in Wil, Switzerland, designed by Furrer Jud Architekten. Due to a recent reallocation of the formerly industrial areal to the residential and commercial building zone, the alternate new development Freudenau Mill is an initial project to be followed by further conversions in the years to come.
Embracing an industrial architectural language with its pragmatic expression and disregarding the context to a great extent, the former silo tower has been replaced by a highly plastic volume. This newly built volume celebrates the context and generates specific exterior spaces in the area between the Mühleweiher pond, Falwilerstrasse and Georg Rennerstrasse, merging the structures with the location and at the same time reinforcing it.
