Full basement in Ascona with daylight
The basement of these exclusive houses in Ascona was completely converted into living space. With the mirror shaft from Heliobus®, the rooms are illuminated with real daylight and thus offer a very pleasant living atmosphere. The available daylight created offices, fitness rooms or guest rooms in the basement.
The built-in mirrors now also provide a view of the blue sky and the passing clouds. Ventilation of the rooms is still possible through the ventilation slits in the light well cover. In addition, sounds such as birdsong can be heard from the garden when the window is open. Thus, despite the cellar, there is a connection to the outside world.
