The Pelikan plot is found in a bend of the Höfenstrasse in Weesen in an exposed
location with optimal sunlight and a view of the mighty Glarus Alps. The
dimensions of the three buildings that are polygonal in shape and are staggered
in sections were influenced by the proportions that are common to the village.
They are loosely grouped around a central courtyard which provides access to
all three houses. Cross gables form the pitched roofs and ensure an animated
silhouette. Despite their varied appearance, the
buildings are of a simple construction and all follow the same logic. The
ensemble looks familiar, not agitated and yet unmistakably contemporary.
