For 3 generations, 2 cats and 1 dog living under one roof was a bit tight, so the grandparents decided to use a leftover corner from their property to get their own roof, building a house attached to the old one for themselves and their pets in this neighborhood adjacent the City of Zurich.

Isolated at the fringe of a forest in the valley of Bagnes, Wallis in Switzerland, this barn was transformed and extended into a primary residence for a couple. Therefore, new volumes were implanted at the back of the barn, allowing a minimum impact on the main facades. On the ground floor, this new volume is set underground and hosts a garage, a bathroom, the entrance and the equipment room. The visible part of the extension on the first floor breaks away from the old barn with its contemporary cladding and roof overhang detail.

The Swiss architecture and design practice Evolution Design, in close collaboration with the client Swiss Life, created 46 individual 2.5-4.5 room maisonettes and flats with a unique concept.
The aim was to develop flats, which would go beyond the functionality and offer an ideal added value as well as have their own identity. This approach responds to the increasing need of individuality and plurality in our current society. Therefore the development of KISS’s design put the future tenant and his personal lifestyle at the centre of its thinking.

The property is located in the historical heart of the municipality of Arlesheim. The plan was to renovate the existing building from the 1970s and add on a small extension. The main reason behind the building work was the decision to move the bank’s entrance to the north-east side onto Bachweg. In doing so, the existing arcade features had to be retained. The two-storey passageway creates a spacious entrance to the bank and is flooded with light. The new construction was deliberately rotated outward slightly from the building lines of the façade.
