Swiss Residential Architecture – latest properties added to this page, arranged chronologically:

Lausen House, Lausen, Basel-Landschaft
Lausen House Renovation Basel-Landschaft Switzerland
photography : Maris Mezulis
Lausen House Renovation, Basel-Landschaft
Renovating a family home in Switzerland can be a significant undertaking, and this bold property renovation project was no exception. The design team completely transformed this Swiss home by changing the floors, renovating all bathrooms and the kitchen, adjusting the room layout, and even adding a wine cellar.

Pyramid House, Tegna
Architecture: DF_DC
Pyramid House Tegna

Pyramid House, Tegna
In its suburban context, this Swiss property appears as an extraneous object of a scale difficult to gauge and of intriguing character. Standing at the end of a cul-de-sac between detached houses and vineyards, the pitched volume in concrete rises devoid of any symbol of domesticity, carved by the cut of the garage and a folded roof, reading as a monumental, introverted form. A mineral garden path leads into a door, mimetised within the concrete frontage.

Concrete Villa, Comano, Lugano, Ticino
Architects: DF_DC
Concrete Villa Comano Switzerland
photography : Giorgio Marafioti and Simone Bossi
Concrete Villa in Comano
This new house in the Comano hills, a small village north of Lugano in Switzerland. The plot was previously occupied by vineyards and characterised by an elongated trapezoid form, which determines the volume.

Villa Courbe
Design: SAOTA

Villa Courbe on Lac Léman
Just as its alpine setting has been formed by many forces over time, this contemporary luxury Swiss residence shaped intuitively and iteratively by many hands – from sun and topography to brief and local zoning regulations.

New House in Ticino
Located in the Swiss Alpine village of Lumino, just north of Bellinzona, this house stands as a monolithic element, quietly complementing and echoing its context. The surrounding area is characterised by traditional stone-built houses, many of which date back centuries and are marked by their use of this single construction material.

Flexhouse on Lake Zurich
With its wide walls of glass and a ribbon-like white façade that winds its way around the building, this home on the banks of Lake Zurich feels so light and mobile.

House D, Nuglar, Solothurn, northern Switzerland
Design: HHF
House in Nuglar

House in Nuglar,
House D is oriented parallel to the landscape, thereby making the view a matter of prime importance. Across more than 180 degrees, you gaze over unbuilt, verdant land with mature fruit trees. HHF radically exploits this situation, thematizes it, and accentuates it even more with a few simple moves.

In the centre of Erlenbach, a town on the edge of Lake Zurich, a new housing building has been constructed on the premises of the Schärer Erlenbach company.
