The former office building has been transformed into a home owned by the SSBL (Lucerne Foundation for the Disabled). The strictly formal appearance has been changed through the addition of free elements such as the balcony and projecting roof. The technical character of the existing house has been minimised by covering the south-east and south-west façade in greenery, thus also breathing new life into the building.The new building application benefits from the existing flexible support structure inside the building. The possibilities of a “plan libre” are fully exploited when allocating spaces. The floor plan is defined by curved room spaces with bathrooms and adjoining rooms, thus separating the public and private areas.The residents are now able to enjoy a home that offers sensual spatial experiences tailored to their own individual needs.
The renovation began in 2008 and came to an end in 2017 with the restructuring of the top floor.
