Project Description

The main feature of the house are the dynamic system of slopes (defined by earthworks and retaining walls) and the shifts and folds in the concrete structure.

This system creates its own topography and defines both the living spaces and the spatial relationships between interior and exterior.

The main structure is defined by exposed concrete slabs and walls and by cross-section service elements containing the stairs, the fireplace and the kitchen.

The roofline game of inclined planes that appear as a series of three traditional roofs, becomes a surrealist landscape. The inclined areas suddenly disappear from view and one does not have a clear perception of the space until one enters inside. The importance of the roof is underlined through the simple pleasure of an unexpected perception.

The last apartments in the SSA Architekten-designed Weltpostpark development are now occupied. The striking six-storey residential buildings have an urban feel about them, while the park-like surroundings and the varied clinker brick facades create a homely atmosphere.

Swiss Architecture

Lugano is a city in southern Switzerland’s Italian-speaking Ticino region. Its Swiss-Mediterranean mix of cultures is closely related to that of Italy’s northern Lombardy region. This mix is reflected in its architecture and cuisine.
