Halen Estate

Halen Estate

The Halen Estate ("Siedlung Halen") is a housing development near Berne, Switzerland. It was designed and built by the Atelier 5 architectural partnership from 1957–1961. Located in a wooded area north of the city, the development is an important example of 20th century Modernist architecture, and as such is listed on the Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites.


Halen Estate is comprised of 81 privately owned houses arranged in three terraces. Built on a hillside, the terraces are reminiscent of steps. The development, quite dense, is also home to a swimming pool and other communal amenities.
