House Lugano

 

 

Location: Aldesago, Monte Bre, Lugano, Switzerland

Completion: August 2001

Brief: To find the right plot of land in the lake areas, Como, Maggiore and Lugano, for a house to be either extended, renovated or new built and to lead the project to completion to include complete interior design and furnishing

Starting point: A steep land on the mountain consists of eight terrace levels and a 1940’s unhealthy small house. The plot had a south- west facing and breathtaking panoramic views towards the lake and the city

 

The old house was demolished and a new structure was raised to include a new house, swimming pool, guest house and a garage. European materials are used such as travertine, rorschacher and Vals stones, Oak and natural render both internally and externally. The entire custom made kitchen is in Stainless steel and furniture were sourced mainly from Italy and Scandinavia.
