LANDSKRONHOF IN SAY 23
As part of 36 selected projects our LANDSKRONHOF courtyard building in Basel is featured in the first annual compendium of Swiss architecture. The “SAY 23 – Swiss Archtitecture Yearbook 2023/24” was prominently introduced end of the first week of September at Foyer Public of Basel theater. Simultaneously a travelling exhibition started in S AM – Swiss Architecture Museum.
SIA: DE 5 À 7 IN BIEL/BIENNE
At the beginning of September we shared our nearly finieshed JARDIN MÉTROPOLE residential and commercial building with architecture guests and collagues of SIA “de 5 à 7” on-site event. Together with our client Vitali’s Generation AG we showed and explained the current status of the project and its development at Bärenplatz in Biel-Mett.
Mid of August we welcomed and celebrated our newly opened office extension. Two street numbers south of the existing main space a similar but overall very different backyard opens up not only to the very depth of the plot but also and interestingly exciting to the sky above. We are delighted to use this additional historic and cabrio-like spatial configuration for all kinds of work related gathering and get-together among our guests and colleagues. Thrilling to see what our newly captured architecture will offer us in the forthcoming time.
Live at Mextrópoli

Jardin Métropole, a competition-winning design by HHF for a 30-meter-high apartment tower in the Biel community of Mett, has now reached its final height.
