Location: Vitznau, CH
Remarks: Project 2004, Realization 2006
The building does not have a closure, it protrudes into the landscape, connects with the steepness of the slope and with the verticality of the forest trees in the background. The rooms inside are in direct dialogue with the landscape. Nature is involved in space and becomes part of the rooms. Depending on the weather, the time of the day or the season, the views change and, like paintings, they only can be experienced visually. The roof connects seamlessly with the landscape and becomes itself a part of nature. In this garden, all senses are addressed. Wild animals are here welcome and at home. As a matter of fact, the building surface has been given back to nature.
