Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Located in Lupsingen village, near Basel, Switzerland, Luca Selva Architects designed a minimalist house which is set on a hillside on the outer edge of the Lupsingen residential area. The village consists of a small old center and a much larger residential area of single-family homes. This is the most popular mixture of remoteness and close proximity to the city center of Basel.
The building’s volume interprets the local building codes in an unexpected way. The code allows saddleback roofs and hipped roofs only. Luca Selva Architects opted for an undirectional volume and chose the hipped roof, to get the benefit from the diverse qualities of the village site.
The three glassed sides allow for cross-views over the interior of the living space and also extend the view out through the windows. The sliding doors also open the living space to an extent that the border between interior and exterior becomes blurred.
The building’s appearance itself is ambivalent. It is a body rather than a house in the traditional way. There is no distinction between roof and walls both are clad in slate. The entire envelope is the roof. There is no canopy and no gutter or rain pipes, the rainwater simply runs down the façade.
With tons of blueprints (over 16,000!) for different furniture designs and outdoor woodwork projectsyou can have a great insight into how to build different things with wood. In it, they tell you about wood, how to design projects, the detailed photographs, patterns, blueprints, materials list and step by step instructions on how to put build them.
The second part shows you the different tools and how to use them, and a complete guide to woodwork carpentry. And the color photographs and drawings are beautiful and show a lot of detail.
