Curtain up!

Extra class family house

Behind the protective and creative façade made of PREFA aluminium lies a first-class family house. With three floors, generous and bright rooms, enormous window surfaces, a granny flat on the ground floor and an impressive view of Lake Murten in the Canton of Fribourg (CH), a builder and his family made their dream come true.

The family from Lugnorre had originally wanted to extend their existing house with an annex. However, this plan could not be realised in practice. They found an ideal property in the same area that met all their expectations and had the new residential house planned according to their own visions. With the approved construction project, they turned to wpbaumanagement GmbH under the direction of Adrian Mollet and assigned them the task of accompanying the project to completion. After examining the project, he suggested some changes to the owner that would lead to significant improvements in the construction, such as statics, thermal bridges and technology.

As a result, it was agreed that the execution planning and the tender would start right in February 2019 to be able to start construction in September of the same year. The five-strong team of the office accepted the challenge, surprised the owner with new details and presented a detailed budget plan until the effective date.
