Feldbalz House by Gus Wüstemann Architects
Description from the architects:
It’s not a house but a family sculpture looking for freedom and social interaction.
Family life / public life – we created the sculpture that contains the family life, where everybody meets and circulates on the first floor, where you have a great view over the lake of zurich. This sculpture separates the parent’s area which is on top of the sculpture and the children’s area which lies underneath. The children live in the garden, where everything is white, like in a Greek village, happy, but protected by the family sculpture. there is the access to the garden and the pool, it’s the playing, active area. The main living area is connected to the garden by a concrete garden sculpture, which is a tribune with a great view, to rest and have a drink with friends. this social hub has water in a hole, that’s where the swimming pool is.
