Walensee House by km Architektur located in Unterterzen, Switzerland | The Hardt
Walensee House by km Architektur located in Unterterzen, Switzerland, a small village on Walensee lake, one of the largest lakes in Switzerland. Completed in 2007 the 7,400-square-foot home has a ridiculous view of lake Walensse and the mountains of Churfürsten. The location alone of this single family home in Unterterzen, with a clear view of lake Walensse and the mountains of Churfirsten, is spectacular. The property which is located on the slope of a green meadow offered the conditions to realize the floating design which captivates through its clear form and the use of natural materials using concrete, glass, and wood as the structural material. A loggia encircles the building on the water side, fulfills an open living space and creates a flowing transition between interior and exterior with a fantastic panoramic view. The effect is intensified by sliding glass doors as high as the room itself on this side of the façade. The back of the house appears to be more closed. Rooftop photovoltaic panels and a stove in the living room produce most of the energy for the home.
