High above Lake Lugano, this impressive villa designed by Philipp Architekten – Anna Philipp is set in fantastic surroundings with a stunning view. The clients had already lived in Lugano for many years before they decided to move up onto the mountain. The house consists of four levels which all have to be crossed before reaching the top located residential area. The aim was to gain the best benefit of the unique panoramic view.
The spaciousness of the living area merges visually with the overwhelming nature, emphasized by using transparency, different views and perspectives. Bearing account to the region’s climate, the living room doubles due to the large terraces over a long period of the year. The clients rave about the 270˚ panoramic view, where under favourable weather conditions you can even spot Milan. There is nothing to disturb the splendid view of the Swiss Alps, even the water surface of the overflow pool seems to merge with the surrounding nature.
Passion for houses —There’s nothing more significant to describe what our architect’s office is about: houses – simple, yet complex. The archetype of all construction is our passion. That’s what we stand for. On this we work holistically with a team of architects and engineers. Center of our designing is the human being. We understand architecture as a second skin, which must be tailored. At the same time it’s essential to reflect the unique character of the location.
The goal is a harmonious triad of mankind, nature and architecture. The focus and specialisation on houses and villas is faced by a wide diversification in the range of services offered. We not only design the house but also like to take over the responsibility for the entire interior and exterior design. Our regular tasks include the design of furniture, the wellness areas (spa, sauna, jacuzzi, steam bath, solarium, swimming pool, beauty, fitness), the energetic conception, the designer kitchen, landscaping and outdoor facility, lighting design, the home entertainment conception, safety features and equipment, or, last but not least, the issue of healthy living.
For the implementation of our design we have a range of proven, outstanding craftsmen and manufacturers at our disposal. Thus, we can also put German quality craft into effect in countries where an appropriate infrastructure is not available. Quality made in Germany for global disposition.
