In the industrial area of Regensdorf one comes across several buildings which from the outside appear to be a regular office typology, but once crossing their threshold a great variety of uses and users can be found. To adapt the found place a great flexibility is required from these practices. This call for appropriation exploits the possibilities of a building. Although the circulation space is shared by many different groups, an exclusion is formed over several doors.
Thinking about the new development that is to be built in Regensdorf, the question arises: How can these found practices co-inhabit the ZWHATT-Areal? By rethinking circulation space, hereby not only understood as a quick connection from A to B, but seen as a collective space, lively and occupied, a deserved access for the practices is created, examined through the study of two buildings that are yet to come.
