schorenstadt, Basel

schorenstadt is one of Implenia’s flagship projects for the 2000 Watt Society and has been developed in cooperation with leading Basel-based architects Burckhard+Partner AG and other experts. Depending on the building typology, various modern timber construction methods (hybrid construction with concrete floors and support, composite construction with concrete-covered laminated timber ceilings, prefabricated timber construction) were used.

The project consists of three lines of buildings with different terraced home typologies and other buildings with flats. All the terraced homes are made up of a basement, a ground floor and first floor, with an attic floor and a generous roof terrace. The roof terraces are offset to provide an additional private outside space. The inside spaces are intelligently designed and allow real flexibility in terms of interior design. Real attention has been paid to optimising daylight: It all feels spacious and bright.
