House Bühlmann, Basel | 2011

The existing single family house that forms part of a terrace and is located in the Neubad quarter of Basel needed change in order to answer different expectations of the owners. The formerly narrow connection between dining and living got enlarged, additionally the living area received a generously glazed link to the garden. The existing level difference to the garden was bridged with sculptured steps, inviting you to walk, sit or lie on. The uniform choice of materials, using douglas fir for all external elements, created a new ensemble tying all elements together. These small interventions gave the family added quality of life.
