High above Lake Lucerne, with breathtaking views of the water and the Alps in Switzerland, lies this massive contemporary home with an architecture that is truly dazzling. Designed by Ungertreina, a company that considers architecture “an obligation in the cultural, social and economic sense“, the project, called Villa Am See, has a sculptural and dynamic appearance and consists of three residential volumes, each with its own layout. Walls made of thick glass, each focus on a different section of the magnificent panorama. A glass portal next to the massive steel garage door leads into a corridor which further directs towards the three stacked living concrete “boxes”. The corridor is in fact a ramp to the elevator. The exposed concrete walls and the lighting create an unreal atmosphere and enhance the effect of a mountain tunnel. The interior design varies, from one box to another. The actual living space is highly modern, featuring stylish and minimalist details. The garage is particularly interesting to observe, as it hosts the owner’s Porsche collection, mimicking a “James Bond atmosphere”. [ Photo credits: Francesca Giovanell]
