Description by Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects:

The new building is located in a densely built-up villas quartier via Lugano, with view on the city, lake and mountains. The design reacts with restraint on an everyday theme: build in urban chaos. Therefore, omitting the use of attributes of a classical house: only two simple cut, mutually staggered stone cubes work from the mountain out – fragmentarily – more of the landscape, as the quartier belonging – more wall as a house – the one time allocation eluding. Habitable interiors created by the principle of the excavation. Two similar, with a large wood gate closable openings, offer the residents inlet and outlook. Additional light enters through courtyards. The water of the inlet in the valley-side cube floating basin connects to the lake.
