Diakoniewerk Bethanien

Seven months after the start of construction works in November last year, the groundbreaking ceremony of the Diakoniewerk Bethanien building at Buckhauserstrasse in Zurich-Altstetten takes place this week on Thurday, June 5. The 40 meter high-rise building integrates the new Bethanien headquarters as well as a palliative care unit, a health and a daycare center, a hotel, a restaurant, service spaces and conference rooms. With its progressive urban mixture of uses, the new building will also have a positive impact upon the further development of its environment which actually consists of traditional nine-to-five office buildings. Completion will be in 2015.
