Heuwinkel residential development, Allschwil 2016–2021
Two new buildings with the largest photovoltaic façades on residential buildings in Switzerland are being built in a residential neighbourhood with buildings typical of the 1950s.
The placement and form of the buildings create a public square along Heuwinkelstrasse and across Pappelstrasse, which can be used by both the residents and the surrounding neighbourhood and invites people to linger under the trees, where there are fountains and benches.
At the same time, the square is the clear focus of the new buildings, as the three building entrances are directly accessible from the square and open up the total of 65 apartments and three single rooms.
A passageway on the ground floor past the communal room leads to the private outdoor space for the residents of the estate with play, recreation areas and planting.
