    Peaceful, reserved, calm: living near the centre can also look completely relaxed. The Lautengarten in Basel offers elegant apartments behind ochre façades – and opens up unobtrusively to the outdoors via roof gardens and large balconies.

    The generous roof gardens radiate Mediterranean ambience – and these can be used frequently as Basel is renowned for its good weather. The restrained colour palette does not impose anything, but leaves space for leisure.

    A stainless steel work surface is combined with a wall covering of elegant and easy-care glass. The quality of the building is continued in the appliances: the latest generation Miele domestic appliances make the kitchen a haven of convenience. The highlight: a frameless built-in ceramic glass induction hob.
