SOCA family home cooperative
The SOCA housing cooperative in Basel manages some 40 single-family houses.
Gruner was commissioned to design and implement the first phase of a comprehensive refurbishment and extension concept. The development of this concept was preceded by a detailed condition analysis of all the properties. The cellar spaces of the small-roomed 1940s terraced houses suffered from damp. The refurbishment program entailed the drying out and insulation of the basement masonry, replacement of the front doors and the remodeling of all 40 windbreaks with canopies and integrated mailboxes. The differences in levels necessitated the individual detailing of all new access stairways.
Design during all phases, building application procedure, site supervision.
