Siedlung Strättligen

Siedlung Strättligen

Short description

Refurbishment of a settlement of eight three- to six-storey buildings with 138 rented apartments, based on the exterior architectural expression of the formal language of the time of construction.

The project

The Strättligen housing estate in Dürrenast, Thun, was built in 1965 and is currently in residential zone 3. The estate forms an undisputed unit that should be retained. As part of the renovation, the architectural look that was changed during the 1980s should be corrected and based again on the original design.

The project includes eight buildings between three and six floors with a total of 138 rental apartments. The renovation is planned in three stages and includes the facade, kitchens and bathrooms, plus the lobby areas.


  • Very short preparation time for the first stage
  • Renovation is made while the apartments are occupied (utility shaft renovation)
  • Complex pollutant decontamination

Further information

  • The entire project was launched, advertised and awarded within just five weeks, with a contract volume of around CHF 20 million
