ASSISTED LIVING HOUSE ANDERLEHUS
YEAR | 2014-2016
LOCATION | Schaan
COLLABORATION | Hansjörg Hilti
CATEGORY | Reconstruction
Anderlehus is a building with assisted living for young people. It has grown organically over 350 years in the center of an allemanic settlement core in Schaan, and today serves as well as the office for probation assistance. This remodelation was realized in collaboration with Hansjörg Hilti.
As the surrounding had dramatically changed, Anderlehus started to be more and more dwarfed by the new Schaan. We set out to give the building back its place in the village while retaining its character. Without trying to turn it into a museum of itself, we used as much of the existing substance as possible but increased and simplified the volume.
Today, Anderlehus is a continuation of four centuries of bricolage keeping its century-old wooden beams and stone walls.
