After several months’ planning and rebuilding, the traditional Volkshaus Basel is showing a new face. The bar and brasserie have been completely rebuilt and designed by Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron. “Based on the original architecture of 1925, the Volkshaus will be preserved in all its diversity and complexity and will reflect the spirit of its own history,” says Herzog & de Meuron Senior Partner Ascan Mergenthaler. “Our intention aims to revitalize the diversity of this location which is so important to the life of Basel, while at the same time restoring its architectural identity.” Volkshaus Basel
