The shape of the plot and its attractive location right next to the River Reuss in Lucerne make this project particularly special. The plot is long, becoming narrower on the south side towards the river. The building is situated a considerable 20 meters away from the river. These factors were essential in positioning the house and in developing its fundamental form. The understated integration of the detached, two-storey house acknowledges the presence of the neighbouring buildings on the north side of the plot. Towards the south, the house opens up with a wider view towards the river and its surroundings. Upstairs, the east and west facades are closed, while the north facade opens up again towards the forecourt and the adjacent buildings. The south-facing side of the house has been designed to allow more sunlight to enter the house and to afford a better view of the river.
