Thinking further about space and home

Hägi Wendls, a house with a history dating back to 1820, where at times fourteen people lived and worked together, is to be given a new use. Living for a family and a large open area for culture, exchange, communication and experiment in Muntlix.
The attic will become a cultural space.
The biggest challenge is to preserve the old building fabric and adapt it for the present. A house conversion with clay, wood and straw.
The knowledge of local craftsmen and their willingness to engage in experimentation is essential.

Students from the Master of Architecture | BASEhabitat plan and build one term on the building site.

Attic improvised as a cultural venue

“We are opening our doors, to let arise a place for burning issues and the development of ideas. A place for lectures and concerts, for restaurants and agriculture, for a think tank and handicraft workshop.”
