New construction of a spacious detached house with view of the Passwang mountain.
On a 1'500 m2 plot of land in the Solothurn municipality of Himmelried, we built a spacious detached house on the foothills of the Jura with a view of the Passwang
. The building extends over a length of approx. 30 m in one story along the road and over two floors towards the valley. On a split-level organization the house offers space for a family with four children and dog as well as guests. On the entrance level of the split-level there is the guest wing and a work area. On the upper floor the bedrooms are arranged, on the ground floor the large living/dining area facing south with its outside area covered by the upper floor to the west. The air space in the southern centre of the house, connects the floors and created the internal relationship between the street and slope façade.
The surrounding area with meadows and pastures borders directly on the building, which with its façade clad with anodised aluminium sheets refracts the light in various ways depending on the incidence of light.
