The location alone of this single family home in Rechberg, with a clear view of the surrounding is quiet spectacular.


The property is located on the slope of a green meadow. A floating design and the use of natural materials using concrete, copper, glass and wood as structural material characterize the single family home. Besides the structural members that establish contact with the ground, the rest of the house is constructed out of wood.


A balkony encircles the building, fulfills an open living space and creates a flowing transition between interior and exterior with a fantastic panoramic view. The effect is intensified by sliding glass doors as high as the room itself on this side of the façade. The back of the house appears to be more closed.


The overhanging parts of the roof shelter the balcony and give a shade to the broad expanses of glazing, protecting the house from excessive solar grain in the summertime. In the winter, the sunshine becomes a passive source of energy. The back of the house appears to be more closed. The entire façade of the building is clad with natural white pine wood taken from the local region. Thanks to this wooden façade, which has already weathered to a light gray colour, the building fits in harmoniously with the surrounding area. The house was designed according to strict considerations of sustainability, involving the ecological quality of the materials and choices such as a solar hot-water-system combined with a wood-stove-heating.
