Veneer Birch peeled by Roser turns concrete warehouse into contemporary schoolrooms

In the former industrial quarter of Lysbüchel (St. Johann-Quartier), a new, urban and lively quarter is being created. With the removal of Coop's logistics center, space and room became available for a new use.

In a bold move, the Basel-Stadt structural engineering office and architects converted an existing warehouse building into a primary school building. The addition of natural materials was an important element here. With the light birch wood, a wood with structure and character was deliberately chosen. In the peeled version, this creates timeless, varied images and a substantial room atmosphere.

Roser was allowed to supply all the doors, birch veneer and the shelves in peeled birch for this building project, in addition to the wall panels in birch plywood.
