The Belmont Dream House was designed by zo2 architecture and is located in Belmont-sur-Lausanne, Switzerland. The designers were commissioned to create a home that would meet the owners’ need for an open plan residence that communicates well with the exterior: “Their brief was to create a design that would be ecological but also cutting edge and stylish with high ceilings and huge windows to maximize the stunning views of Lake Geneva from the hilltop setting of Belmont-sur-Lausanne. To make the brief even more of a challenge, the actual site was both steep and had an awkward layout. zo2 was able to rise to the challenge and created a timber construction that rigorously adhered to ecological standards whilst featuring open plan living spaces, huge sliding doors and open terraces. The resulting house is divided into three loft style apartments that complement the environment through the use of natural materials. The interior reflects the clients’ love of attention to detail and functional design. Strong use of colour reflects the natural setting of the home and defines the mood for separate spaces within the open plan design“. How do you appreciate the architecture of this project?
