The multiple-family dwelling lies on the uphill side of the platform of Rüschlikon railway station. Not too long ago the building had been threatened with demolition, but after its purchase by the Rüschlikon Housing Foundation it was decided that the premises would be renovated. Energy efficient renovation was carried out using Fixit 222 Aerogel High Performance Insulating Plaster. The original appearance of the building was maintained unchanged.

The Fixit renovation technique, including the use of a 30mm thick plaster layer of Fixit 222 Insulating Plaster, created a novel room climate based on its water-vapour permeability. The combined layers of the plaster system absorb excess humidity from the air and return it in a controlled way to the room, preventing the development of mildew
