Former industrial area becomes a residential and business quarter.
On the former Gangloff industrial site in Bern, three interconnected building sections are being created:
- Tower in the west with eight floors
- Bar in the north with seven floors
- Angled building in the south and east with four floors
The ground floor offers around 2,500 m² of commercial space. The public-oriented sales and service uses will serve the needs of the surrounding neighbourhood.
The upper floors will provide high-quality living space with 178 apartments and 2 studios. The studios, 2.5- and 3.5-room apartments, are based on an open floor plan design according to the "principle of living through". The basement floors are equipped with bicycle shelters and car parking spaces.
The building will be certified according to the Minergie standard.
The robustness and simplicity of the facades clinker imitation as well as the horizontal formats of the window subdivisions are reminiscent of earlier industrial use.© Zvg: GWJ Architektur AG, Bern; Visualisierung: PLAY-TIME, Barcelona
