A lot has changed in the village of Erlinsbach: in the centre, Café Rössli has recently opened in the existing building of the Rössli centre. It invites to visit and as a new central point for the village it has become an important meeting place for the locals. Nicole Faltinek, lighting designer at RIBAG, was able to help shape the Café with a convincing lighting concept.
Erlinsbach lies directly on the canton border between Solothurn and Aargau. With the creation of Café Rössli, a village centre was created, offering residents of both cantons a place for meeting up and having exciting discussions.
Prior to the opening of the café, a warehouse for the beverage trade was housed at the same place. The complete renovation has opened up a variety of options for turning the dark storage room into an inviting café. In close cooperation with the property owner, Thut Architekten AG from Aarau planned a bright café flooded with light. With additional walls, the architects reorganised the entire floor plan. Multiple windows provide the necessary daylight, the acoustic ceiling creates a pleasant indoor atmosphere.
The café is divided into two zones. In one area, the sales counter with bar is housed, in the other the café itself. The different functions required equally different lighting solutions.
