Beautiful Stone House in Switzerland with Lake Views
This incredible building is located in a privileged but sprawled urban area above Locarno, with an overwhelming view on the city, the surrounding mountains and the lake in Brione sopra Minusio, Switzerland. Designed by Markus Wespi Jérôme de Meuron architects, the project is a discrete reaction to a daily subject: to build into a crowded and chaotic urbanized area. Therefore all attributes of a classical house were totally omitted. Two simple cubes emerge from the hill – fragmentarily – more associated to the landscape than to the other existing buildings – more alike a wall than a house – and timeless.
