The new 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. The project is a discrete reaction to a daily subject: to build into a crowded and chaotic urbanized area.Save this picture!© Hannes HenzSave this picture!Plan 2Save this picture!© Hannes HenzTherefore all attributes of a classical house were totally omitted. Two simple steaning cubes are emerging from the hill – fragmentarily – more associated to the landscape than to the other existing buildings – more alike a wall than a house – and time less.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Hannes HenzSave this picture!SectionHabitable interiors are generated through cavities.
