Alpen-Flair in the basement

Holidays in the mountains have never been so close for a family in Rapperswil as after the conversion of their basement: there now lies a recreational landscape with sauna and fitness area. Above all, the materials used, rustic stone and spruce wood, celebrate the Alpine charm. And the pile of logs on the wall is also more than just decoration...

Wellness retreat

Cozy like a mountain hut

A few steps down and the residents are already in their cosy wellness retreat. Here they enjoy the warm showers of the rain shower or gaze from the loungers of the sauna into a crackling fireplace. Your eyes are made to believe you are in the mountains by the rugged natural stone walls and spruce wood. The ceiling of the sauna even imitates the night sky!

Kitsch-free chalet look

The architect in charge, Mario Solèr, is a man of quiet tones: clear lines and a balanced impression characterise his style. Here, for example, he contrasted the uneven natural stone walls with strongly drawn old wood panelling. The walls play with projections and offsets - for a feeling of security that is otherwise only familiar from modern chalets.


Hardly any wood is as synonymous with Alpine style as spruce. Its rustic appearance is contrasted with rugged natural stone in this private spa. Angular alder wood loungers and the anthracite-coloured floor tiles fit in perfectly. They find their modern counterpart in the chrome elements of the sauna and its frameless glass fronts.
