Tom Bisig | Basel


The structure is embedded with the force of a concrete dam deeply into the rear, steep moraine slope. An opening provides a spectacular view over the lake of Zurich. A large rectangular basement containing a guest room, cellar and garage creates a platform on which the L-shaped ground floor of the main level stands. The main level contains living room, bedrooms and baths. The precisely cut silhouette of the building fits perfectly into the plot. All external walls are built of a warm, ochre-sand coloured reinforced concrete. The living room is separated by a kind of waistline from the bedrooms. As a result of breaking up the internal façade, exciting views are generated from interiors through the outside space.
