The housing and commercial building VoltaMitte in the North of Basel closes the triangular block between Voltaplatz and Lothringerplatz that came into existence after the construction of an underground motorway.


















The long building with retail and services on the ground floor and 92 apartments on the upper floors replaces the old housing development. It completes the traditional perimeter block development and thus creates a clearly defined urban situation. The volume of the building, distorted on the courtyard side, creates flats of varying spatial qualities with individual floor plans for each flat.
