Around the Vulkanplatz in Zurich Altstetten a new quarter arises: FOGO – vivid  home. Together with the AOZ (Zurich based organisation specialised in social welfare for migrants and their professional integration) and Stiftung für bezahlbare und ökologische Wohnungen – Einfach Wohnen SEW a joint project is being developed.

The aim is to promote the community and the exchange. A place should be created to chill and play, for encounters, projects and events.

More information can be found on the Juwo website or at

Living in wooden modules

Since December 2018 the apartments constructed from wooden modular are rented. A total of 139 rooms have been created, out of which 102 unfurnished are available for Juwo tenants and the remainder are rented by the AOZ.


The Vulkanplatz place is very well located. It is situated on the north side of the station Zurich-Altstetten. Training centers, culture, sports and leisure activities can all be reached in a few minutes by bike or by public transport.

Community – meet and contribute

In collaboration with the tenants, a community is to develop – a village square atmosphere should arise. Many project groups are already working on implementing the ideas with great motivation.
