Lovers of nature and architecture enthusiasts will be elated by the combination offered by this villa located in the Sunny South of Switzerland. With fantastic views on Lake Lugano and on the majestic Alps, this elegant and spacious villa is perfect for a family to settle in: located in the sought after neighborhood of Montagnola, the villa is only steps away from the international school TASIS. This project, designed in 1960 by architect Bruno Klauser, sets the stage for the ultimate indoor-outdoor lifestyle: outdoor entertainment can be enjoyed throughout the exterior with a large swimming pool, a covered dining patio and a smart barbecue and seating area, and different covered terraces and a lovely timber sun deck.
Rumors have it that the architect who designed this house attended a seminar with the legendary star architect Richard Neutra, in Zurich and, that, inspired by this seminar, he then designed this house. What do you think? The style definitely does reflect Neutra’s principle of respect for nature in his designs and he also incorporates a “spider leg” which Neutra’s architecture is known for. All living areas and terraces offer views on the lush green setting and inspire complete peace of mind. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Wetag Consulting]
Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
