19 May 2022, SIA Lunch Neubau Bürogebäude Frongartenstrasse St.Gallen

"St.Gallen's tallest wooden building replaces the former Italian consulate, which had been used temporarily as a cultural consulate and string office for about 5 years.
The new project by Basel architect Harry Gugger is a six-story new building made of wood - the first in downtown St. Gallen. Thanks to prefabrication, the new building was able to grow rapidly in height within a short period of time. With the exception of one floor, the future Medisuisse Ausgleichskasse office building consists of open-plan offices with freely subdividable areas, thus offering maximum flexibility in terms of workplaces.
Offices for the 50 or so employees who look after the fund's 22,000 members will be built on five floors. Retail space is planned for the first floor. Occupation is planned for August of this year, after a construction period of approximately 20 months.
Under the direction of project manager Harald Schmidt and project participant Gonzalo Ampudia - both architects from the Harry Gugger studio in Basel - we will gain an exciting insight into the current exciting final construction phase of this office building."
