    Text description provided by the architects. New housing ideas and wishes brought the owners of the site to remove the old house except for the basement walls and to replace it by contemporary architecture. On top of the old basement with a wonderful winding staircase a new building was placed hovering above the garden. The villa is L-shaped and aligned to the south-west featuring generous glazing to the porch in front of the house and a garden with water areas.

    The light hill-side location, the expanded ground floor facing the street and the carport form a generous forecourt and entrance hall. Although the traditional living room and sleeping rooms are situated on one floor, living in this home is also extended to include areas such as garden, porch, swimming pool and garden pond. The integrated bathroom and sauna lie to the east forming an intimate and private wellness area.

    The effect of the interior and exterior rooms is connected and underlined by the use of wooden flooring making these areas practically merge into one another. Two living units on the upper floor with wonderful view of the foothills of the Alps offer optimal conditions for the son and guests of the house.

    The canopy roofs on the west and south sides of the house, the sliding shutters and the smooth white-plastered façade surfaces give this home an open and inviting Mediterranean character. The external building elements are high-quality insulated and a demand controlled ventilation system ensures a particularly low expenditure of energy.
