The residential is tranquil and family-friendly. In the family-friendly complex, there is an indoor swimming pool and a children’s playground. The adjacent fields and the nearby forest invite you to jogging, cycling and other and other sports activities.
This lovingly renovated flat is located on the 1st floor in the centre of Winterthur Töss. Very good public transport connections, many shopping and leisure facilities are right on the doorstep.
The entrance hall is a long, spacious room and for the wardrobe, a large, practical cupboard with interior lighting was installed. Three rooms, consisting of two bedrooms and, for example, an office, complete this part of the flat.
The living area further forward, on the left side, is large, bright, with white oiled oak parquet flooring, providing a pleasant ambience. The dining area is open to the living area and kitchen. The kitchen offers many work surfaces and great materials in Corian Design ARCTIC ICE White Matt. It is equipped with modern kitchen appliances such as a combi steamer, dishwasher and induction hob with an integrated extractor fan.

The bathroom shines in PLUM FROSTED Resina Matt with a bathtub Botero of Blubleu in matt white BluStone and a rain shower. Towel radiators provide cosy warm towels. A small balcony gives you a great holiday feeling while you take a relaxing bath.
From the kitchen, you continue to the master bedroom which is equipped with built-in wardrobes and a modern bathroom. The shower has been lovingly remodelled and shines in a new and fresh design in POWDER BLUE Resina Matt. The mirror is equipped with indirect LED lighting.
Access to the large terrace is from the master bedroom and the living room. On the terrace, there is enough space for a lounge to relax and a large table for an evening meal together.
The flat has its own large cellar compartment and two attic compartments. The house also has a communal laundry room for shared use.
Built in 1947 the flat needed to be redefined in terms of space and functionality. The collaboration of the Architect Adrian Weber of Zürich, who helped us in the conceptual redefinition of the flat and in the design has been very effective for that.
We worked around 3 mains concepts: A) create open spaces for the kitchen/living-dining room, B) Expand the bathrooms, more space & more functions, C) Create more closet, including space for the WM/TU tower.
The price to pay for A) was quite high, because the central wall of the flat played a role in the static structure of the whole building. So it has been demolished once a CFRP Based Structural Strengthening System was put in place. Some days of extra work with a specialised installation company.
To achieve B), we have moved the kitchen in the freshly created open space and expanded the little and narrow WC into a great 8 m2 bathroom, very lit, with bathtub, shower, toilet, and elegant wash-basin with drawers. The bathroom inherited the access to the little balcony. Close to the newly created bathroom, we set a 3 m closet hosting the WM/TU tower. Very practical position, close to the bathroom, to the balcony.
The last point was the reallocation of the master bedroom. We decided to close a little window, creating a new, more useful wall to host the bed. The entrance door for the second bathroom was also moved so to make it private to that bedroom as well as the second access to the very large terrace, a large glass door was made part of the redefined room
We are extremely satisfied with the result!
Beautifully renovated apartment close to Lake Zurich
This modern 5-room-apartment is located in Feldmeilen on the 3rd floor of a quiet and well-kept 8-unit house. Just 300 meters away from Lake Zurich and sitting slightly elevated, the location couldn’t be more attractive.
The flat was completely renovated with the help of renowned architect Irena Valertova (www.irenavalertova.ch). It is equipped with built-in wardrobes in the entrance area that have plenty of storage space as well as integrated lighting. The large and bright living area is paved with white oiled oak parquet, which creates a pleasant ambiance.
The open kitchen connects to the dining area. Equipped with modern kitchen appliances such as a Combi Steamer, a dishwasher, and an induction stove with an integrated exhaust hood, it offers everything the passionate host needs. There is enough space to prepare food and enjoy dinner with friends and family. The surfaces are made from high-quality materials in Corian design ARCTIC ICE White Matt. The beautiful bright winter garden completes this area of the apartment.
The bathroom has been remodeled with care and now shines in a new and fresh design. The colorway is in PLUM FROSTED Resina Flat. There is a double lavabo, a bathtub Botero of Blubleu in Flat White BluStone, and a rain shower in POWDER BLUE Resina Matt.
The apartment has three bedrooms. The master bedroom is equipped with a balcony and a walk-in closet, in which you will find a practical V-Zug washing tower.
The flat in Meilen has wonderful surroundings – a school with playing kids protected by very old full-grown trees. A glazed veranda enables this view and connects perfectly the flat with the world around.
The original flat was divided in small poorly-lit rooms with old dark dirty wallpapers. We have decided to bring the light everywhere and clear the layout of the flat as much as possible.
We have remove several walls by the entrance and in a living room. We have opened the kitchen towards the veranda that one can enjoy the great view. We have clarified the original chaotic entrance. We have placed a new wardrobe for the clothes and shoes near the entrance door because the old wardrobes were on the very incorrect place.
The whole area entrance – living – dining and cooking has got a new coat. Newly very light spaces with an U-shaped kitchen and a cooking island provide a great standard of living. The idea of the cooking island is, that while cooking towards the veranda one can observe the life behind the windows. The dialog kitchen-veranda is an important point of this flat.
We have kept both bathrooms as they used to be, but we have reorganized them properly. The guest bathroom against the entrance has a perfect position and also a good layout, so we were focused more on working on a material quality. The second bathroom closed to bedrooms was connected with an oversized washing-room. We have decided to split these two rooms and change a bit the content of the washing-room : we have transformed it in a garderobe with a washing machine and a tumbler and we have connected this room with a master bedroom. In the master bedroom there was not enough proper space for a wardrobe, so the new garderobe room will overtake this function. As we have found the washing in this room very practical, we have kept it. The quality of the master bedroom has been risen significantly and the balcony enhance the quality of this space, too.
We have kept the connecting corridor free with an idea of a low shelf for shoes at the side and a piece of art above it. The original high wardrobes were absolutely blocking this very central space.
We have defined this flat properly and it has become a nice space for living.
Planned and Renovated with Great Care
Realized with the renowned architect Irena Valertova – www.irenavalertova.ch, this apartment has an ingenious layout that makes optimal use of the available space.
The many windows in the entrance area and the bathroom allow for a lot of natural light.
The living area and the bedrooms are paved with white oiled oak parquet, making for a pleasant ambiance.
The kitchen is open concept and connected to the living area. Lots of working space, premium surfaces made of Corian® in Arctic Ice White Flat, and modern appliances (steamer-oven-combination, dishwasher, and induction stove) make this kitchen perfect for hosts that enjoy cooking for friends and family.
The two bathrooms have been tastefully remodeled with great care. The first en suite bathroom is connected exclusively to one of the bedrooms. It features a free-standing bathtub, the Boero fo Blublue in Matt white Corian style. Walls finishes is Resina in Plum Frosted Matt colorway, mirror with integrated LED lighting, a Corian Arctic Ice double sink, with large drawers and a MIELE washing tower consisting of a dryer and a washing machine.
The second bathroom is equipped with a walk-in rain shower, walls in Resina finish in Matt Powder Blue color as well as towel heaters that provide you with comfortably warm towels, Artic Ice Corian Lavabo with large drawers, mirror with integrated LED lighting, like the master bathroom.
This flat used to have a dark and unclear layout. Rooms were not well balanced. There was a too small dark kitchen in a corner, both bathrooms were connected by a door, which was highly unpractical and does not reflect needs of tenants nowadays any more. The junction between bathrooms meant also that a master bedroom was accessible from two sides. This was for sure not the level of standard we wanted to keep.
We have decided to make the flat es light as possible. There are several skylights on the ceiling that needed maintenance. After cleaning and repairing they have become a real highlight of the flat. They produce a very nice indirect light that increases the whole light quality of the flat significantly. They are placed in the entrance hall and in the both bathrooms and they gives this flat definitely a great character. We have worked with this theme and also on materials- we have used light materials and pastel colours.
The entrance is an important point of the flat. We have re-used the original niche (storage) to create a wonderful garderobe with a soft lighting. This garderobe is placed directly at the entrance door and is extreme practical for storing shoes and clothes. The entrance hall is thanks to the big squared skylight extreme light. The hall points directly to a dining area. The dining and a kitchen was a challenge of this flat because of the space size – it was too narrow, basically at the limit. We have decided for an L-shaped kitchen furniture that enables enough space for the dining. The kitchen in its simplicity looks very elegant and the space for the dining evokes a feeling of luxury.
We have kept an original fireplace and created a spacious living room. We did not forget to find a right wall for a television. From the living room there is an entrance to the balcony and to the master bedroom.
Both bathrooms were rebuilt drastically. We have separated them by a wall, we have renovated both skylights and we have reorganised the whole ensemble. The bathroom closed to the entrance is appropriate for two bedrooms against to it and for guests – it has an oversized washbasin and a shower. The second bathroom serves to the master bedroom. It has a double washbasin and a free standing bathtub. We have achieved a great material and light quality in both spaces.
The whole flat is very purified and provides a great level of living.
We had been looking for an apartment in Oberengstringen for some time. When we saw the ad for the apartment in Winkelrainweg, we were immediately interested in seeing it. The professionally organized online tour immediately confirmed our intuition and made us even more curious.
Our first impression was: what an inviting and light-flooded apartment, and what a view! We were impressed by the wonderfully clean lines, subtle colors, and carefully selected materials. Beautiful yet practical and subtly luxurious.
We really appreciate the dedication of the KLAM team, their helpfulness, and good energy. We were happy to see that they had no issue providing us information even after the sale. Anastasia and Salvatore put a lot of heart and soul into their work. We wish them nothing but continued success and many more exciting projects in the future!

Lavish Residence with a Magnificent View
This spacious apartment consists of four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a patio, and a balcony.
It has been designed with the help of renowned architect Irena Valertova – www.irenavalertova.ch. It is located on the seventh floor and provides a beautiful view of the Limmattal and Würenlos. The balcony is lavish, allowing for sunbathing and barbecuing with family and friends.
Along the entrance hall, there are closets with interior lighting and a lot of storage space. The living area is lavish and laid out with white oiled oak parquet. The big windows allow for a lot of natural light to come in.
The kitchen is open concept and connected to the living area. Filled with up-to-date equipment and providing enough room to maneuver and cook, it offers everything a passionate host needs. The modern appliances comprise a steamer-oven-combination, an induction stove, and a dishwasher. The surfaces are fashioned from Corian® in Arctic Ice White Flat. The contrast between the colors Black and White makes for a classy and unique look.
There is also an exhaust hood made by Falmec that sanitizes the air. The high-quality hood works with the E.ion system – an innovative technology that effectively removes odors, clears the air of virus particles and bacteria, and restores the ionic balance.
The two bathrooms have been tastefully designed with great care.
In the first bathroom, the colors Plum Frosted Matt on Resina finishFlat create a fresh and pleasant atmosphere. There is a spacious shelve, a double sink, and a beautiful bathtub in Flat White manufactured by BluBleu.
The second bathroom is painted in the colors Powder Blue on Resina FinishMatt. There is also a rain shower and a towel heater.
The apartment also has a washing tower consisting of two high-quality Miele units: a washing machine and a dryer.
The very generous flat in Neuenhof is placed on the last floor of the house. It has a beautiful view from every single window and a large terrace on the roof top. A great view of Limmat is present in the whole flat. Because of the real hight of the house there is a certain atmosphere of freedom in this flat. The flat is also extreme light.
The original layout of the flat was very unbalanced. A kitchen and a dining were relatively complicated accessible, absolutely separated from a living room and the terrace. A huge (and very dark) fire place was blocking the living room. Two too small bathrooms were inappropriate for such a big flat. Our vision was to reorganise the layout, make it clear, get rid of the dark corners and connect the cooking/dining with the living. We have mirrored the layout of the kitchen and opened it towards the living room. A new large multifunctional space with the entrance to the terrace was created. We have focused on the details in the kitchen, a sink is placed directly by the window and a cooker is facing the dining/living room to enable communication while cooking. Three bar stools attached to the dining area can be used for a quick breakfast. Normally, we like to keep the fire place, but in this case it was absolutely useless, so we have removed it completely.
From the original dining room we have created a new master bedroom with a master bathroom. The main entrance also needed some work. There was a lack of wardrobes in this area. Profiting of the new designed master bathroom we have placed two closets on the other side, facing directly the main entrance. Aside of the closets is a big mirror.
A long corridor with a guest bathroom in the end is already a part of a private zone of the flat. We have used a very long wall of the corridor to place there an enormous line of closets. A huge flat needs many closets. Closets are nicely lighted up under the ceiling, practically placed against the entrance to the rooms. The three bedrooms and a master bedroom are placed in the row, well-organised. These four rooms are like a counterbalance to the spacious living area. We have achieved a wonderful light flat with well-dimensioned spaces.
Enjoy the Beauty of Spaciousness
This lavish second-floor apartment has been completely refurbished in 2020. A smart floor plan and a beautiful interior make it a truly convenient, cozy home.
In the entrance area, there is a built-in wardrobe for convenient storage.
Next to the entrance area, you’ll find two nurseries of more or less equal size.
Opposite the nurseries is the master bedroom with a spacious built-in closet already installed.
The first bathroom has been tastefully designed and offers maximum comfort. The colorway Powder Blue on a Resina finish creates a pleasant atmosphere. An elegant rain shower waits to be enjoyed. The wall mirror with LED lights adds a beautiful touch to the room. Special towel warmers keep your towels comfortably heated.
The second bathroom is in soft shades (Plum Frosted colorway on the usual Resina finish). A freestanding bathtub promises relaxing moments. Here, too, you’ll find a big mirror with LED lights.
A chamber next to the bathroom features spacious shelves as well as a washing tower, comprising a washing machine and a dryer.
The tailor-made kitchen is open concept and connected to the dining area and the lavish living room. The kitchen surfaces are fashioned from Corian® in Arctic Ice White Flat. Various up-to-date appliances (oven-steamer-combination, dishwasher, induction stove) guarantee a pleasant cooking experience.
From the living room, you can access the balcony. A beautiful fireplace invites you to relax and enjoy your nights with the family.
The whole apartment has white oiled oak parquet flooring.
The flat in Winterthur has a great location, close to the old city and beautiful surroundings. This flat is very spacious and generous. It contains a large living room with a balcony and three bedrooms. What we have seen as a weakness of this flat is an absolutely separated kitchen/dining from the living area.
We have worked on that intensively, we have connected the living room with a dining by removing a wall and we have integrated a too far placed kitchen as much as possible. Unfortunately is the layout not very well-balanced – this huge flat has a small kitchen placed in the very last corner of the flat.
We have decided to expand the kitchen out of its niche. Which was too deep, too dark, too hidden. We have placed a cooking part out of the niche and created a seating area with bar stools from the side of the dining – this was like “an invitation” into the kitchen. Despite the position of the kitchen, one can see the new kitchen line from the whole living area. We have also shorten up the length of the kitchen, we have placed a wall of the towers at the end of the space. Attached to the kitchen is a dining place. To achieve a quality space, we had to replace the door of the bedroom and integrate it on the side of the entrance hall.
These changes have enhanced the quality of the space significantly.
We have focused also on the entrance hall. We have removed walls to the dining and living room and opened the space as much as possible. On the side of the hall we have placed a raw of closets. Aside of the wardrobes there is a newly positioned door to the one of the bedrooms. The opening of the hall and the connecting of the functional zones has made the old, too closed and too divided disposition more consistent. There is a way more light in the whole flat now. We have avoided redundant crossings in the space.
The flat is renewed in light colours and light parquet (bleached oak). We have designed both bathrooms in typical pastel colours. The bathroom closed to the bedrooms offers a spacious shower niche. The main bathroom contains a free standing bathtub and double washbasin. For washing there is a small storage room closed to the main bathroom.
When we first viewed the apartment on Römerstrasse in Winterthur, we instantly fell in love with it. We could tell right away that it had been renovated with a lot of passion and soul. The place is generously equipped and has a very practical layout. What we enjoy most is the tasteful and refined design with its clear structures and these beautiful colors. The designer’s keen eye for details is palpable throughout the apartment. After the purchase, Salvatore and Anastasia continued to support us, answering our question and explaining everything worth knowing about the apartment, which is not at all a given after a property purchase. We can say that we are proud and happy owners of a KLAM apartment.

Designer Gem with a Highlight
This beautiful apartment has been designed by renowned architect Irena Valertova – www.irenavalertova.ch.
In the entrance area, you’ll find built-in wardrobes with interior lighting with plenty of space for your wardrobe.
There are two bedrooms, with each of them having its bathroom. The tailor-made walk-in closet with LED lighting will make your heart beat faster. An absolute highlight to enjoy.
The bathrooms have been redesigned with great attention to detail. The finishing of the walls is in Resina, for colors, Irena Valertova – choose a soft and stylish Plum Frosted Matt for the main bathroom and POWDER BLUE Matt for the Guest Bathroom. Large mirrors with indirect wall lighting, double sinks, bathtubs, and towel warmers make for a convenient and pleasant ambiance.
The open concept kitchen allows you to show off your cooking skills to friends and family or cook together in a group. The free-standing cooking island with seating can be used as a bar to serve guests or function as a table to enjoy dinner with the family. The look of the kitchen is simple yet stylish, with surfaces made from Corian® in Arctic White Flat. Modern appliances such as an oven-steamer-combination, an induction stove, and a dishwasher make for a truly convenient kitchen experience.
The whole apartment has white oiled oak parquet flooring that makes for a bright and homey ambiance. A fireplace in the living area invites you to relax in the cold winter months.
The Flat in Bergdietikon has a layout with a central living zone and splitted private zone on two sides of the flat. This creates a natural inconvenient crossing route from the living room, which can be a real disadvantage. This was the biggest issue we have managed to fix. This flat has a wonderful big terrace facing forests and meadows around. This was a great condition for creating functional a central living/cooking space with a good lighting.
We have focused on the living zone firstly. The kitchen was centraly placed, but separated from the rest of the living zone by a wall. After removing this wall we have achieved a natural centre of the flat (also well connected with the terrace). The kitchen was designed with a separate cooking island that is a main meeting point for everybody. A dining area was placed at the side of the kitchen. The living room has some issues: already mentioned crossing routes between the private zones divide the living room in several not working areas and absolutely opened main entrance of the flat without any space for coats and
shoes that was facing the living area in an inappropriate way. To solve the entrance problem, we have placed a double wardrobe against the entrance door and we have removed a niche by a fire place. The wardrobe is an optical barrier to the rest of the living area, it defines and limits the entrance area and enables to store all needed stuff. This item has cleaned the layout drastically.
The living space itself is divided in to two parts – one attached to the terrace which supports the whole idea of the central living-cooking-dining hub. We have removed an unpractically placed heating and windows with the balcony doors have been adjusted properly. The second part of the living is attached to the original fire place. In this
corner there is newly a TV corner with armchairs. A cosy atmosphere can be created by a fire. The fire place has been reduced and purified from the original style of 70s.
Also the private zones of the flat needed some changes. Two bedrooms and a bathroom on the side of the kitchen has been rebuilt dramatically. The useless long bathroom space creating a corridor to the basement has been shortened up and reorganised. We have created a pleasant room with a bathtub, a double-washbasin and a toilet.
There is an absolute lack of store space in the flat. We have created an extra-big walk-in closet closed to this bathroom and attached to the both sleeping rooms. This idea has enhanced the living quality of the flat significantly!
Two cellars appropriate for washing clothes and storage are accessible from outside. This zone of the flat was redesigned to achieve the best functionality.
A True Family Haven with a Beautiful Ambiance
This lavish ground floor apartment with 4.5 rooms will intrigue you with its smart floor plan and its modern and stylish interior.
Lining the walls in the entrance area are two built-in wardrobes, both with interior illumination.
The open kitchen is connected to the dining area and offers various modern appliances: An oven-steamer-combination, a dishwasher, and an induction stove. The kitchen surfaces are made from Corian® in Arctic White Flat. The kitchen and dining area are connected to the beautiful patio.
In the living area, big windows make way for a lot of natural light and allow for a beautiful view. A fireplace invites you to relax and be at ease. The entire apartment is laid out with white-oiled parquet.
The apartment also features a bedroom and a nursery.
The bathroom has been renewed with great care. A freestanding bathtub made by BlueBleu invites you to enjoy a warm bath. The Resina finishing of the walls in Plum Frosted Matt color creates a pleasant atmosphere. There is also a big mirror with indirect LED lighting that illuminates the wall, a double sink, and a beautiful walk-in rain shower.
In the guest bathroom, there is a MIELE washing machine as well as a MIELE dryer ready to be used.
The spacious balcony faces southwest and allows you to enjoy the midday and evening sun. All sun and window blinds are fully electric.
The flat in Zumikon is a spacious flat with a very clean and well arranged layout. The size of functional areas is appropriate, especially a living room is very well connected with a dining. Although these positive facts we have discovered several weaknesses that we decided to improve. The first big issue was a separated kitchen from the dining. We have decided to open the whole space and fuse it into a one multi-functional space. We have removed a wall between the dining room and the kitchen and we have shortened up the wall facing to the entrance. The kitchen was too small, probably fulfilling needs in 70s but as a contemporary kitchen it was insufficient. The kitchen has become a centre of the flat, well connected with a balcony and with a great view from a side window. The entrance of the flat is perfectly positioned, unfortunately very dark. Removing the walls from the kitchen has lighted up the whole area. The kitchen furniture (the part including a bookcase facing the dining room) was on purpose designed in a shape that enables a maximum of the light coming through. A fire place from 70s was oversized blocking the main space between the dining and living area. We have minimied the whole volume drastically and cleaned the whole appearance. We liked the idea of the fire place in the living room, so the functionality has been preserved. Thanks to these improvements entering the flat has become a nice moment of revealing generous living and cooking area on the one side and an entrée to a private area on the other side. A bathroom and a toilet are very practically placed in the central part of the flat. The bathroom was in the typical style of seventies with very chaotic layout (a toilet against the door, washbasins on the side in the corner etc). We have decided to design a generous bathroom with a free standing bathtub and a shower, with a central spacious double-washbasin and a well-illuminated mirror. It is a master bathroom with all it´s quality. To achieve this, we had to get rid of original wardrobes that consumed a lot of space. The end design of the bathroom contains a very clean
layout, pastel colours on the walls and very pleasant cemento-looking tiles on the floor. A toilet for guest, perfectly placed near to the entrance, was also redesigned. We have removed the wardrobes and have created a place for a washing machine and a tumbler. We have decided for a small-sized washbasin that fits correctly in the space.
By the entrance we have placed an additional spacious wardrobe with an interior lighting. The original built-in wardrobe was kept.
In the whole flat are used light materials with a very light parquet (bleached oak). This renewal has made from the original well-designed flat a wonderful high quality place for living.
After a long search for a home, we came across the apartment in Zumikon. The timeless design, the high-quality materials, and the optimal division of the rooms impressed us immensely. In a nutshell, it is a place to feel at home right away. The cooperation with Salvatore and the KLAM team is among the most pleasant and professional business interactions I have experienced. The communication was excellent, and I was able to count on Salvatore at all times. Always attentive and happy to help, he reacted promptly to issues that were sometimes not entirely uncomplicated. Even after a year of living in the apartment, Salvatore still comes to my aid whenever questions arise. I wholeheartedly recommend the KLAM company to anyone who is searching for a home.

Modern Apartment with a Phenomenal View
This apartment blends superior comfort with high functionality. Completely refurbished in 2019, it satisfies the demands of a modern and convenient lifestyle.
The balcony offers a magnificent view overlooking the Triemli area to Höngg.
The kitchen is fully equipped with stylish appliances, an induction stove, a dishwasher, and an oven. The kitchen surfaces are made from Corian® in Arctic White Flat – a timeless design that will be a joy for you and your guests.
The bathroom offers various benefits that will make you feel right at home: a rain shower with beautiful tiles (color way: White and Umber Brown Drosted), towel heaters, and a sink with a practical base cabinet.
The sleeping area has enough space to fit a built-in cabinet, a bed, and perhaps a little office.
The walls are newly plastered. The floors are laid out with beautiful white oiled oak parquet.
All windows are new and double-glazed, repelling noise and keeping the warmth inside your home. The electrics have been modernized throughout, including sockets and multi-media connections.
The flat had an incredible view on the Zurich west ! This was the main reason we decided to buy although it was in need of huge renewal works : technical (electrical and water systems), architectural ( the kitchen concept was unattractive ), windows to be changed and finishing of the walls and floor ( wall plaster and parquet to be modernized ).
The kitchen has been integrated in the living room removing one side wall and closing the original door. In such a way we have extended on both sides of the wall the useful living space, e.g. allowing the installation of a modern and integrated kitchen on one side and a sliding doors closet on the other side. This little change has drastically changed the flat.
The new kitchen enjoys the view of the city.
After ten years of searching for an affordable apartment in Zurich, I came across the apartment on Sädlenweg. The house the apartment is located in was built in 1972 and has a very modern architecture for the time. The incredible view over the roofs of Zurich captured my attention immediately. When I saw pictures of the apartment in its pre-renovation state, I couldn’t believe the change Salvatore and his team have brought about. The place is now very modern, with beautifully furnished rooms that suit my taste perfectly. The open concept kitche is very contemporary with details like bright LED lighting and pull-out cabinets that make clever use of every bit of space. There are other practical features like the illuminated coat closet in the hallway that reaches the ceiling and offers a lot of subtle storage room. After the purchase, Salvatore was happy to help me make a last change in the bathroom.

The electrical appliances are manufactured by AEG, comprising an oven and an induction stove. The kitchen tops are in Corian design Arctic Ice.
The fireplace divides the living area from the dining area. You can enjoy the lake view over the city and the beautiful sunsets in the evening from almost anywhere inside the apartment.
The entire flat is paved with the finest walnut parquet. The bathrooms have a fresh design with Sant’Agostino Keramic tiles by Philippe Stark in Pastel Lemon.
The sleeping area, the children’s room, and the study are secluded in a peaceful zone of the flat.
One of the bathrooms is equipped with a rain shower, the other with a bathtub. As a convenient bonus, you find a separate room in the hall next to the apartment entrance with a washing tower and more storage space.
There are two spacious basement compartments as well as a large parking spot in the underground garage.

You can take a walk in the Stöckentobel, jog along the Wehrenbach or hike along the Adlisberg to the Loorenkopf observation tower. Quite a unique nature experience awaits you on a walk up to the Witiker Kirchenhügel, from where you have a splendid view of Lake Zurich and the Alps.
This was the first flat in Zürich for Salvatore und Anastasia. It is a positive minded, opened family, who likes colors. We decided for a light design of the flat with grey accents in the interior and colorful bathrooms. This flat has 2 hearts :) – dining and living.
The original plan of the flat was interesting although as very common in 70s, the kitchen was segregated in a corner and completely enclosed by doors. In general the spaces all around the flat were separated by doors. I t was the case of the little entrance corridor versus a big door splitting the night portion of the flat. Removing the kitchen wall, a spacious white kitchen has been opened and connected with dining and to a big balcony. There is planned a big dining table for the family and their friends. Removed the entrance internal door a piece of furniture-wardrobe- connects the entrance with cooking and goes like a snake through the space. The main idea of this multifunctional piece of the furniture was to place here clothes after the entering the flat, to enable enough space for cooking and divide these two functions by an integrated bookshelf that works like an entrainment by eating. This volume of furniture is closed up by a white bar table, which has 3 seats. This works perfectly for a quick breakfast (or quick feeding their 2 kids). The axis of the entrance corridor goes towards to the living room. The living room with a nice fire place has a beautiful view of city Zürich and the lake. The family loves photography, so the walls are prepared to place photos everywhere. Between the living and the dining is an opening in the wall, which enables a beautiful view of the lake also from the kitchen.
These spaces and a small toilet for guests are part of the “public or day area” in the flat. The “private or night area” of the flat contains a Master-bedroom, an office, a kids room with a bathroom and a Master-bathroom. The bathrooms and the toilet are the color islands of the flat. We decided for Philippe Stark 3D yellow tiles, that creates a checker pattern on the wall. This pattern is always visible in the mirror reflection. To neutralize the strong yellow color we used white and grey. The sanitary is simple white and the white-grey combination appears also on the bathroom furniture. The flat has a pleasant layout respecting needs of the family with kids.

There is also a separate toilet and washing facility in the apartment. The modern fireplace in the living area is a warm invitation to relax in the cold winter months. The balcony invites you to linger. Shops around the corner, bus connections and tram stations are just a few minutes walk away.
Well deserved and central located in the little dorf of Albisrieden, the flat is surrounded by trees, no vis-à-vis, in a well constructed and maintained building of mid ’80. The floor plan interesting although in need of modernisation : pass-through kitchen, small and just in front of the entrance door, separated bathroom and WC : yes separated but way too small for everything, including a wash machine, the entrance uncomfortably asymmetric.
Our intervention aimed to increase the integration between the kitchen and the living room, closing the door facing the entrance hall. Merging the WC and bathroom, creating a liveable bathroom with huge shower and space for Wash machine. Balancing the entrance, including a big wardrobe.
Oak whitened parquet had replaced the moquette, fine plaster the oldish wall paper, new electrical and water systems, C-shaped kitchen in ICE ARTIC Corian with a comfortable side snack & cooking desk. Bathroom in white and light brown large tiles, self standing tower lavabo and walk-in rain shower.
