We are forerunners
For decades HEARTH + HOME has been a forerunner as far as affordable, fixed-price home building is concerned.
The main point of our business philosophy is to build your house at the most competitive price possible by using construction modules which leave you the maximum amount of freedom to realise your own individual design. In Switzerland, more than 10'000 houses bear witness to the success of this concept.
Building without risk
The experience we've gained allows us to save you money, time and unnecessary anxiety during construction. We oversee your project on a weekly basis, from the initial financing, through the planning and authorisation phases, right through to final completion.
As the work progresses, intermediate accounts will presented; these intermediate payments, however, will only be for work already completed. This is only fair.
Modernity and quality
Architecture, for us, is a living process. Our architects keep up to date on new developments, whether in design, materials or the ecology of building so that innovations can be incorporated which will improve the quality of our houses and the level of energy consumption.
There's only one way in which we remain conservative, and that's in quality.
Our inclination towards individuality is clear.
Individuals are as different in their home requirements as they are in their general lives. For HEARTH + HOME individuality is paramount. The same applies to the various approaches to financing, something which we take account of. Houses in different price brackets and the possibility of using one's own funds allow flexibility and a certain freedm of action in the matter of financing.
About 15 different models of house form the basis of future construction projects.
Our models of house differ esthetically as well as in their technical detail.
The conventional brick house with a superior layout, seen from every standpoint, corresponds entirely to the standards adopted by the builder.
Decline of the costs of heating thanks to the envelope of the building (18 cms of outside insulation)
Value ug 0.7 + 33 db lower(dim) costs of heating thanks to windows, triple insulating glass
Better heat and phonic insulation in the roof
Less energy consumption thanks to the connection between the boiler and the heat pump
