multi-family homes


Ruedi Walti, Basel


The house enjoys a prime location in a quiet residential area with views over the city of Basel. The building volume, which develops along the depth of the site, takes advantage of the views over the city in the north and inserts itself naturally in the existing garden to the south. The floor plans feature prominent spatial structures. Varied room dimensions form a sequence – a path through the house that alternately frames the garden and the city in order to experience them from different angles. Ceiling heights are similarly varied in order to give each room its own character, leading to a volumetry that suggests the nesting of two different living schemes.
