Lately, DGJ Landscapes have turned to combining travel with housing. With the aim of connecting people with the locality they are visiting, a semi-private hospitality concept was born. First realised through a successful restructuring project for a vacant Rotterdam building, the concept has now moved to Zurich where, in collaboration with architect Caspar Wellmann, the Zurich Guesthouse Parques Rietberg project was launched last Christmas. Eight rooms have recently been equipped with hip Dutch vintage furniture items – surrounded by several parks on the Rietberg and in walking distance to the centre of Zurich. As to not permanently remove the house from the tense Zurich housing market, the concept is designed in a way that it remains available to be rented on a long-term basis as a normal apartment.
