This house is located outside Zurich in Eglisau, Switzerland and was designed for a young forward-thinking and discerning family of an urban planner, an industrial designer and their 14-month-old daughter. This prefabricated concrete house is built on a slope overlooking the river valley. The main entrance of the house is built at the street level while the main volume of the house is built below the street level. In order to minimize the street noise the architect Felix Oesch designed the rear façade with full concrete, backing out onto the road while the front façade in opposite was designed to be opens to the views of the Rhine River.
From the parking area, the main entrance is served by a stair that leads to the heavy wooden door. The door leads to the grand kitchen, dining and living area of wood and concrete which the architects describe as “a strange kind of church.” There, the concrete feels cold white the wood accent feels warmth. The combination makes the home feels calm and feels comfortable.
The living room has wonderful wooden floor and glass wall with amazing mountain view. The sofa is lime green and looks fancy. To match the sofa, there are two black armchairs and a cool green softball’s ball shaped armchair in the room.
There’s a semi sheltered outdoor dining area at the same level. There, the wood floor is made of long wooden planks and has cool gray color. This space has open roof, fresh and is the space where the home office is located. And away from calm and relaxing ambiance, this home office is bright and vibrant. This space is accented with red cabinetry for the wooden office desk and red geometric reading nook on the wall.
The lowest level of the house houses second living room and private areas like bedrooms and a bathroom with its ‘mirror’ design. There are two toilets, two sinks and two shower located in the same room. Felix Oesch. Photo credit: Hertha Hurnaus.
