In a quiet location in the popular municipality of Widnau, the new construction project "AURA" is a multi-family home. In the total of 4 stylish 2.5 to 5.5 room condominiums, singles, couples and families will find a new home that meets the most versatile demands for comfort and design.
In addition, there is a commercial space on the first floor. The spacious floor plans backed with high-quality materials and the modern furnishings create a prestigious and timelessly elegant atmosphere. The architecture is stylish and aesthetic.
All apartments have two balconies or a garden seating area, the attic apartment has two terraces. The floor plans convince with openness and efficiency.
A filigree designed wooden facade - inspired by the historical wooden board screen facades - wraps the façade and gives the building elegance. The vertical bars have different distances and dimensions depending on their position or function.
Terrace flats Adliswil
The property is located in a quiet residential neighborhood at Rainstrasse 16 in Adliswil ZH. The terraced building volume contains two duplex and one condo apartment, all with large terraces facing the valley as well as garden areas on the south side, which are gently embedded in the slope. The apartments are directly accessible via an internal elevator from the garage and can also be reached via the external staircase. The individual apartment entrances have private front areas designed with seating and plants.
The design of the apartments is kept very simple and open. Large window fronts on all sides provide bright and light-flooded interiors as well as visual references to the terraces and outdoor spaces. The interior spaces are designed to flow from the entrance to the living-dining room to the spacious sleeping areas. The materialization is entirely in loft style. A dark, polished tile screed with white walls, dark window frames and raw concrete ceilings provides a contrasting color combination.

Sustainability made easy. Due to the central location as well as the excellent connection to the train & bus transport, you can confidently do without a car in everyday life - or you can rent one of the in-house electric vehicles or bicycles. Everything you need is just a few steps away. In the immediate vicinity are schools of all levels, including the cantonal school as well as a kindergarten. The surrounding area is developing rapidly and is also establishing itself as a center for culinary and cultural activities, for example, through the Sternen in-location across the street or the traditional Madlen cinema and theater. A short walk away, the RhiCHI yoga studio and the TC training center provide the necessary balance.
Consisting of two buildings, which are connected by a common underground garage, the ensemble of volumes contains, in addition to the residential units on the upper floors, various zones for meeting and relaxation. The commercial space as well as the common room on the first floor present themselves open & insightful and are connected by an intermediate courtyard.
This outdoor space extends the network of attractive meeting zones in the central quarter. Unique in the region are the generously designed rooftop terraces, one accessible for private and the other for communal use, thus extending the outdoor space of the private loggias.
The façade appearance is defined by a dynamic arrangement of floor-to-ceiling windows and elements made of a high-quality ventilated metal façade that follows the layout of the interior spaces. The floor slabs are recognizable in the façade as surrounding bands of exposed concrete, thus dividing the individual levels vertically.
Numerous smart home offerings, such as a flexibly bookable laundry & cleaning service, electric vehicles and bicycles, promote a pleasant everyday life for the residents.
Thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, all rooms are abundantly flooded with light and align with the open energy flow of the room constellations.
Representative living, dining and cooking areas put the focus on living together in one's own home and offer sufficient space for creative development and to make interior dreams come true.
Hygiene as a feel-good experience is offered in individual bathrooms open to the bedroom, thus expanding the space for intimacy and relaxation.
Materials, colors and geometries are used in a dependence that supports the feeling of space. All aligned to the well-being of modern, central life.

An L-shaped building is placed at the northern corner of the plot. Through this placement, the building forms a closure to the street (Bünzweg) and to the garage entrance (noise and privacy protection). Towards the south, the building opens up and forms a protected outdoor area. All apartments are oriented towards the private outdoor space. The entrance area is clearly marked by the slight offset of the two wings and is easily recognizable from the street. A canopy with a triangular shape in the ground plan unites the main entrance, side entrance and mailbox system into one element.
The building on Bünzweg features a purely residential use. It contains thirteen 2.5 - 4.5 room apartments distributed over 5 floors (4 full floors + attic). A common room for the residents and a bicycle storage room are located on the first floor near the entrance. The 22 resident parking spaces are located in an underground garage. The garage entrance was planned on the border of the property 3009, so that in case of a later overbuilding of the neighboring property, the shared use is guaranteed. The visitor parking spaces are located along the boundary with property 3170. The common outdoor area (playground) is located in the southern part of the property along the river Bünz.
The facade is clearly structured. The window size changes depending on the importance and size of the space to be lit. The windows in the living areas and the loggias have the largest openings in the facade. The facade is finished with a very discreet gray-beige exterior plaster. The windows are accentuated by surrounding metal frames and stand out slightly.
