Modern House Lucerne Switzerland









 Philippe Stuebi
Ultra Modern House
Lac Lucerne Switzerland

This ultra modern house was designed by the architectural firm of Philippe Stuebi at Lac Lucerne in Switzerland. A tremendous and iconic work of modern architecture. On both, the front and the lake side, this sculptural modern house shows very expressive and ornamental facades. Facing Mount Pilatus the white concrete elements are dotted with circular openings that allow glimpses into the two-leveled 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 B├╝rgenstock shows off a protruding, glistering loggia made of round glass bricks. Very decorative, such elements are a strong contrast to the rough renderings of the side facades. 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.
