House in Laax, Switzerland by VALERIO OLGIATI

Sunday, June 24th, 2018

Article source: VALERIO OLGIATI 

The single-family house rises from a 10-20m wide and 90m long lot in Laax, Switzerland. Local building legislation only permitted the construction of volumes aboveground at opposite ends of the property. One end of the area is situated in the “village zone”, while an “agricultural zone” surrounds the other end. Two completely opposite worlds form the context of this house.

Casa Forest in Basel, Switzerland by Daluz Gonzalez Architekten

Article source: Daluz Gonzalez Architekten

The southward-sloping plot not far from basel is framed to the east and south by a beautiful deciduous forest. Breathtaking views into the dense, deep- green foliage in the summer and the leafless and airy branch structure in the winter were a decisive factor in calibrating the daylight and arranging the spaces in this home in interplay with the natural surroundings, becoming the leitmotif for the architecture.

Castagnola in Lugano, Switzerland by HERZOG & DE MEURON

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: HERZOG & DE MEURON 

The well-preserved gardens of the 17th century Villa Favorita, lining the shores of Lake Lugano at the foot of Monte Bré, are of great historical significance. The 13 romanticist buildings situated in the gardens were erected between 1687 and 1932. Their historicizing style is characteristic of Ticino architecture and, in fact, generally of the villas on the lake shores of northern Italy. Originally, the Villa Favorita was a freestanding, single ensemble of buildings between Lugano and Castagnola. Today it is surrounded by modernist blocks of housing from the second half of the 20th century. This modern architecture, is also a typical Ticino style, that emerged in response to the appeal of the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland as a second home and a financial center.

Aquatis | Aquarium-Vivarium in Lausanne, Switzerland by Richter Dahl Rocha & Partner Architects

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

Article source: Richter Dahl Rocha & Partner Architects 

Architectural Concept

Designed by the Richter Dahl Rocha & Associés Architects, the Aquatis complex is part of the Biopôle, a science-based science park in the north of Lausanne. The place is strategic, at the crossroads of the motorway bypass of the city with the new M2 line of the Lausanne metro, inaugurated in 2008. The set consists of a parking-relay on which are placed a hotel and the aquarium -vivarium City of fresh water, connected by a central mall that connects with the metro station «Lausanne-Vennes», and with the car park. Each building has its own identity, but contributes to the coherence of the whole.
