Our flats

As we age, many of us face becoming isolated in a home that’s too large and expensive to maintain. Imagine instead, living in an eco-friendly community with like-minded neighbours. Our 22 new flats range from 2 to 3.5 Zimmer. To find out more about the location, cost and availability of our flats

About Co-housing

Our community provides all that’s rich about day-to-day life. Your home is large enough for your comfort and connected enough to allow community interactions. We have our privacy, but we are not isolated. To learn what co-housing means to us.

News & Events

Getting to know each other is an important part of building our community. Organized events for both members and friends happen about once a month. When the weather is fine, we take walks in the Basel region. Other W+ B events include musical recitals, Apéros, museum visits and workshops. For our latest news and events.
