Old Age Shared Housing, Freiburg

The main floor of the house were converted into two barrier-free apartments while the roof houses spaces for the caregivers. By means of a space-saving elevator all levels can be reached barrier-free.

By means of an extension with sliding windows, extra living space and a rooftop terrace were generated. The extension references local Wintergardens. The façade was cleaned and refurbished. New wooden windows take up the historic divisions. Wooden roller shutters provide sunshade and security. Energy efficiency of roof and basement were improved to contemporary levels.
