The house is located in the center of Oberwil, in the north of Switzerland. The neighborhood is designed by older one family houses and small stores. Due to ist geometry, the house offers an unconventional floor plan with comfort, flexibility and space to move. As the rooms are linked and correspondent to each other, they are ideal for family life with space for individual creativity.
The open kitchen and the living room, which are on the same level as the terrace in the garden, form one area. A large glass facade is the only separation between the interior and the external space. The two upper floors offer private rooms, separated by sliding doors. The galleria in the attic gives a wonderful view over the roofs of Oberwil and completes the concept of the flexible and open floor plans. The center of the house is a stair made of exposed concrete. It connects the house in the vertical. The robust and massive concrete sets a contrast to the fine, light white oak parquet floor.
