Specialists in historical locations

Two factory buildings steeped in history with an exciting future.

As experts in listed factory buildings, Ueli and Marc Biesenkamp are the reason why the town of Thun is now considered an event hub with national appeal. But what does “event hub” actually mean? Konzepthalle 6 in the Selve district, on the former site of Metallwerke Selve AG, is more than just a place for holding events: it hosts a restaurant, coworking space, concert hall, bar and cultural forum and is of course a popular meeting point for locals. The father and son have now moved from the Bernese Oberland to the Mittelland region. Here, the creative duo face the perfect challenge in the form of the old Aeschbachhalle. The situation in Aarau is similar to that in 2009, when Ueli Biesenkamp and his
company daskonzept ag won the tender by the town of Thun for the use of Halle 6. After a period of temporary use, the industrial site was transformed into the mixed-use Aeschbachquartier as part of a multi-year project, with an industrial warehouse at the centre. Now the Biesenkamps and their team are turning their creative attention to Aeschbachhalle. What do they plan to do? “Like Konzepthalle 6 in Thun, we want to transform Aeschbachhalle into a modern meeting place with a restaurant, coworking space and plenty of room for various events,” explains Ueli Biesenkamp.
