From the architect. This central redevelopment gives a new perspective to the Näfels area. The new construction of the Raiffeisenbank is based on the grand houses found along Hauptstrasse.
The facade towards the street is representative of the area and is characterised by a composed design. This also applies to the rear-facing residential buildings in the Wydenhof.
Together, they form a cleverly integrated ensemble of buildings with sizes and styles that are inspired by the surrounding structures. This leads to a shift from public to mostly private outdoor spaces.
