Wohnhaus am Walensee is an incredibly designed single family home by K_M Architektur, with spectacular views of Lake Walensee in Unterterzen, Switzerland. The contemporary project was completed in 2007, designed to take in its natural surroundings by offering not only clear views to the lake but of the mountains of Churfirsten.
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 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.
