Commissioned by a private client in Zurich, a garden wall made of trass lime was built. The material including the processing technique was first developed and realised by Martin Rauch (Lehm Ton Erde baukunst GmbH) for the Novartis (Basel) campus project.
The aim of the project in Zurich was to take up the boundaries of the plot and make them look more natural. In doing so, an existing terrain was taken up again, which could also be replanted in combination with the new wall. The new trass lime wall and the planting behind it create a common picture.
