2LB Property by Raphaël Nussbaumer Architectes:
“The plot is found at the edge of a rural village, in a suburb of Geneva, fairly close to the city center. A family members with 2 children who loves Brazilian architecture wished to construct there a new house. The sloping website faces south in direction of the Salève mountain, which majestically overlooks the region.
As is the situation with most Swiss rural regions right now, the zone is underneath design and style protection, which represented quite a challenge for developing a contemporary residence.
The almost obligatory place of the volume in the steepest part of the slope, the restricted height of the constructing and the only achievable access to the plot from the south-west corner have created the garden a very central element of the project. Enclosing the property softly in a protective atmosphere, it extends the residing room location and blurs the limits in between within and outside.
The landscape with the amazing cliffy Salève mountain inspired the layout of a reliable, autonomous and mineral volume. All enclosing walls are in exposed concrete and had been build in a single single manufacturing approach in purchase to procure a monolithic facet without any horizontal division.
Privacy in relation to the neighbouring homes was a important consideration. Alternatively of placing windows all about the volume, angled roof-lights stretch across the first floor and let the light flow into the heart of the house.
The project’s organization is primarily based on a matrix of 3 x 3 units with a hall and staircase in the center.
The singular characteristics of this home consist of 3 distinct area structures: the ‘glasshouse’ for the most public locations which entry the garden on the ground floor the ‘cave’ for all services places – excavated into the slope. And the ‘lived-in roof’ with its attic-type roof-lights for bedrooms, bathrooms, dressing area, loved ones area and studio. These components synergy into a just remedy.”1st Degree
