+...O HoUsE...+

O House located in Lucerne - Switzerland,
designed by Philippe Stuebi Architekten Gmbh

This sculptural villa shows very expressive and ornamental facades on the front and the lake side. The white concrete elements (faced Mt. Pilatus) are dotted with circular openings that allow glimpses into the two-levelled orangery with its exotic plants, as well as the lounge, the guest tract and the staircase accessed through one of the openings at the ground floor.

The lake side with superb mountain views of the rigi and the bürgenstock shows off a protruding, glistering loggia made of round glass bricks. The basement nestles along the slope and opens into a large fitness area with a 25 meter pool, half inside, half outside, which is inserted in a white terrazzo plate. This terrazzo plate extends gracefully from the pool bar located inside along the boathouse made of white tinted, rough jetted concrete into lake Lucerne.
