Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
After completing the previous house design projects in Cape Town, Paris, and Senegal, architecture firm SAOTA recently delivered their 4th home masterpiece in Geneva, Switzerland. The house which is intended as a home and office, designed with dramatic triangular shaped site, with very restrictive design and building parameters.
On either side of the 20 meter wide channel sits the two portions that make this house, the main house and the annex. What link the two buildings are the cinemas, spa, auditorium and garages underneath. The main house is a combination of round edged cubes and triangular masses that form the L-shape of the living spaces.
A double volume living area with a curved wall on the façade facing the lake, flows into a dining area and kitchen on the ground floor and bedrooms, a lobby and en-suite’s on the top level. The top floors are accessed by a glass cylinder encased lift. The annex houses a guest suite and what unifies the two are their materiality and spacial relationship to each other, making the gap in between read rather like a pause in time as opposed to an empty space.
