Serene Modern Chalet in Switzerland With Views of Lake Geneva
This beautiful and playful modern chalet in Genolier, Switzerland was designed by LRS Architects to take full advantage of the Alps and Lake Geneva. According to the architects, “The topographical insertion, in a «plug-in» way, inverts the interior walk and the superposition of the functions. The intermediate floor with the parent and the children bedrooms offers a terrace. From the garden, the ground floor is accessible with the inner-pool and the workshop. So to speak, this single family house get immersed into the topography and let us play with the perceptions and the variation of scales. The relation between the inhabitant and the distant landscape (the lake and the Alps) and the nearby context (so are the garden, the terrace and the porch) is a central theme of the project. The utilization of the larch gives a strong contrast with the mineral parts and the tiled roof introducing the stacking lecture“. Inside and out, the features of this home are tasteful and inspire a serene living environment.
