A centrally located neglected former industrial parcel of 4'957 m2 in Liestal is being transformed into a vivid, mixed-use quarter with an international school, a gymnasium, 120 workspaces and 101 tiny homes, apartments and town houses – all with a strong architectural identity and strong ecological concept.
The two semi-public buildings create a protecting buffer for two calm courtyards surrounded by residences of diverse typologies divided into three subgroups: 86 tiny homes, 10 family apartments and 5 town houses alongside several communal spaces. Designed with care for those wanting a smaller ecological footprint, the tiny homes occupying a space between 36 and 42 m2. If, however, the need arises, these can also be combined to create larger living units.
The apartments measure a generous 120 m2 and are meant for families, whereas the five 125 m2 town houses flanking these apartments are meant to fulfil the dream of owning your own house. Ground-floor apartments come with double ceiling heights and a recessed mezzanine. The graduated building perimeters allow most residences to have private terraces, generous natural light and views towards the green spaces along the waterway of the Orisbach.
Mobility requirements are met through a large bicycle basement, car-sharing, bike and scooter programs and a unidirectional underground garage that also offers drop-off spaces for students.
