Bern

Old town house

This building, dating back to the early 16th century, laid the founding stone for Bergdorf's experience in revitalising and renovating historic structures. The ugly duckling, which nobody had dared touch for years, became a beauty with four apartments and a ground floor café in 2008.​ The project was twice awarded with the Dr. Jost Hartmann-Preis, for good renovation and good concept.
