The Feldbalz Home has a magnetic appeal with its boundariless living zones spread across 3 levels. Made by Gus Wüstemann Architects, this single-family members modern dream home is perched high above a lake in Zurich, Switzerland supplying its residents breathtaking views on a everyday basis.
Functioning from best to bottom, the spacious dwelling characteristics the parents’ private regions, the middle floor of main living and lastly, the children’s sleeping and play quarters which had been cleverly developed to mesh with the outside gardens and swimming pool.
With its suburban neighborhood setting, much care was taken by the architects to supply maximum privacy to the household as they moved about from day to night. Cool polycarbonate panels on the street-facing facade shield the property from becoming visually penetrated, even though an interior courtyard becomes a hidden spot to live, play and socialize with family and friends. In the evening, the property illuminates from within and, by means of the two stories of massive frosted panels, displays a soft glow.
One particular aspect which was integrated into the design on all levels are sliding screens which totally open, creating a dynamic indoor-outside living environment for the habitants. These disappearing windows expand up to 36 feet in some areas which completely expose the rooms to fresh air and plentiful organic light. Retractable partition walls are portion of the interiors as properly, making versatile spaces for a household life style.
The colour scheme portrays a foundation of black-and-white with grey, with minimalist furnishings enabling for totally free movement about the home. A core fireplace roots the principal living floor, which receives a panoramic point of view of the water and distant mountains. These views are unobstructed due to the glass railings which embrace each the upper and mid-level terraces. A rectangular void in the roof on the best level spectacularly frames an outdoors dining area. From here, a sculptural concrete staircase unfolds onto the pool patio under, although meeting the lawn and gardens.
Feldbalz Home is a contemporary family dream property with an ideal sensibility, thoughtful privacy and spectacular indoor-outside design and style.
