Construction of a large multi-family dwelling complex commenced on the plots at Wildbachstrasse 55-59 in the spring of 2008. This new building yielded 64 spacious and modern rental apartments conforming with the latest standards. The apartments were moved into at the end of 2009/start of 2010.
ART IN ARCHITECTURE
Much creativity was displayed by artist Max Zuber who was commissioned with the design of the stair railings. Max Zuber’s fascinating unique specimen made of bronze, the so-called water staircase, blends in well with the Wildbachgut and its surroundings.
“Water flows from the source around the square, trickles into a spiral, swirls and splits into a rectangle, unites to form a wild stream flowing into the earth, waters the seeds and awakens the shoots to new life: the eternal cycle.”
