Remodelling of the Loft Floor of Villa Boveri Baden
The listed Gothic Revival Villa Boveri was built between 1895 and 1897 by the Swiss architect Karl Moser and served as a residence for the family of industrialist Walter Boveri. Today, Villa Boveri is used for training courses, seminars and as a venue for cultural events. It has the status of cultural property of national importance.
In 2014/15, the 2nd upper floor and the loft were converted into seminar rooms, creative spac-es and lounges. Targeted upgrading of the supporting structure allowed a spacious design of the floor plan layout. A fire-protection concept tailored to the project in accordance with the latest VKF [Cantonal Fire Insurance Association] standard took the specific fire-protection re-quirements into account.
