Can you identify this building in Zurich?

Last summer I spent a few days in Zurich and while strolling around, I took a couple of pictures of the architectural details of a building, but I didn't make a note of what the building is, and I wish I knew. If anyone knows central Zurich well enough to be able to identify the place, I'd appreciate it. It's somewhere in the middle of town, I'm pretty sure between Bahnhofstrasse and the river. The pictures were taken under an archway where a driveway, or a road, goes under the building.

That's easy for anyone who has been to Lindenhof.

This is ...
Lindenhofstrasse 19, 8001 Zürich


... on the way to Lindenhof from Zurich HB.

Well spotted. It looked familiar to me but I couldn't place it.

Re: Can you identify this building in Zurich?

I have the same photo. Except I would have said "it's the building next to the Urania car park..."

'Cuz I'm not from around these parts....

Re: Can you identify this building in Zurich?

I have walked by this place a few times, particularly because I like Lindenhof a lot.

For some reason, that place is quite serene and calm.
