House In Swiss Countryside | FOVEA architects
Located in the swiss countryside, this small dwelling by FOVEA architects stands out with its sharply angled façade.
Facing south, the angled upper volume was developed as a way to balance the need for privacy and light.
Upon the rectangular first floor, the second level is inclined at a 40 degree angle, adding a cozier feeling to the outdoor patio below.
Filled with large windows this façade fills the interior with light and avoids facing other villas being built in the near future.The home was prefabricated and is clad in painted pine planks that allow it to blend in with the rural architecture of the area. the home’s form also borrows the image and function of the eaves found in local farmhouses.....more
