The architecture permanently involves in a dialogue with the nature
The southward-sloping plot not far from basel is framed to the east and south by a beautiful deciduous forest. Breathtaking views into the dense, deep-green foliage in the summer and the leafless and airy branch structure in the winter were a decisive factor in calibrating the daylight and arranging the spaces in this home in interplay with the natural surroundings, becoming the leitmotif for the architecture.
The wishes and the spatial programme envisaged by a family of five nature enthusiasts and art lovers could thus be strategically integrated into a compact crystalline sculpture utilising the plot right to the boundary line. The differentiation between bedrooms and private areas on the one hand and airy open areas on the other (entryway, dining room, kitchen, fireplace, study, library) is made tangible through tunnel-like stairs and room-like platforms that form a sequence and spatial continuum. The central high hallway is part of every room sequence, connecting them all visually. the living room floats like a bird’s nest between branches. Walls and ceilings of exposed concrete as well as sleek built-in furniture in oak evoke an elemental, reduced impression, not attempting to rival the natural surroundings.
▼ 中心的挑高与任意空间都在视觉上相连，the central void is connected with each spaces visually
▼ 客厅坐落在楼梯中间富有空间感的平台上，犹如坐落在两根树枝之间的鸟巢，the living room located on the spacial platform in the middle of stairs, like a bird’s nest floating between two branches
The waxed raw plaster walls of the private rooms are polished so that they reflect the outdoors, bringing it inside even more strongly through their careful details. On the roof, a large terrace perches in a reserved fashion. The earth-coloured exterior skin and angular volumetry of the building engage in an ongoing dialogue with the natural environment, constantly seeking to both contrast and harmonise with nature.
▼ 人工与自然存在强烈反差，却又如此和谐，artificial traces and nature create the harmonious contrast
▼ 光滑的玻璃窗倒影着室外的美景，exterior scenes of greens reflect on the polished glass windows
▼ 森林也在建筑土壤颜色般的外表皮上留下模糊的投影，forest also casts its vague shadow on the earth-colored outer skin of the house
▼ 夜景，night view
▼ 场地平面，site plan
▼ 地下一层平面，underground floor plan
▼ 一层平面，first floor plan
▼ 二层平面，second floor plan
▼ 剖透视，section perspective
