Ancient farmstead, Waldkirch SG
Last-minute rescue came for this over 500-year-old St. Gallen farmstead. In 2016, architect Philipp Hostettler impressively brought the jewel back to life. To match the elaborate shingle façade, we reconstructed the windows in oiled natural larch to match the ancient style. The weather-resistant, fine-grained coniferous wood will last at least another hundred years and blends naturally into the neighbourhood.
