Conversion of commercial and residential property Rümelinsplatz 1, Basel

Reconstruction and seismic retrofit

The residential and commercial building on Rümelinsplatz in Basel was built in the 1950s.
In order to upgrade the rear of the building and make the apartments on the upper floors more attractive, the building was partially demolished above the first floor and an open backyard area was realized.

This also required extensive securing measures of the existing retaining wall to the neighboring parcel.
