KOHLERSTRAUMANN unveils a contemporary seven-unit ‘hasenrainstrasse’ apartment complex within binningen, a peaceful neighborhood just a short walk from basel. situated on the curve of the hill, the environment offers 180-degree uninterrupted views to the basel cityscape. built in response to the contours and topography, the apartment offers a unique structure that appears lower from street ground level reflecting the neighborhood setting.

the minimalist apartment building is expressed with a unique modern style and an innovative design concept that reflects the low-rise developments in the neighborhood. the architects faced numerous challenges with the site topography, excavation, form, and neighborhood context.
