SeneCasita Gais

The Gais building project, by the renowned architectural firm Frei Architekten AG in Aarau, boasts a distinctive longitudinal building, the SeneCasita Gais, as well as a residential and a commercial building. The facades are decorated with glazed concrete and feature windows of large dimensions, irregularly positioned on the SeneCasita building.

Markthalle Färberplatz

This market hall is located in the area of the Hapsburg city expansion of the 14th century. In its inner form it reminds us of the rooms of medieval granaries or arsenals. The closely juxtaposed, lamellar supports create an exciting interplay between an open and simultaneously closed space. The building has been awarded several prizes.
