The architect Benjamin Leimgruber renovated a house in the Ottenbergstraße, that used to be a bakery at one time. The classic character of the house and its typological specificities were kept, and new elements were added and adjusted. Natural, healthy and high-quality materials were chosen, such as lime plaster and wood. A solid Douglas floor of the »Natur« sort stretches across 5 storeys. These are connected by curved folding stairs, which are also made of Douglas boards.

»The Douglas stairs connect the storeys of the building to each other. This brings harmony to the house.«

The surface of the long boards lightens the room in a natural way.

»I find it important to use hygienic and natural materials«

Benjamin Leimgruber, father of 3

»Some elements needed to be renewed, but we were able to keep the character of the building«

»The structural heartiness of the wooden boards was fully expressed in the discreetly designed rooms«
