HHF Architects designed the House D with breathtaking scenery of the Swiss North.
Description by HHF Architects:
The view from House D is one of a kind. You might imagine you’re in South America or upstate New York;it is hard to believe that Basel is just 25 minutes away. As the last house to be built in Nuglar, in the canton of Solothurn, House D is privileged. It is oriented parallel to the landscape, making the view a matter of prime importance. One can gaze over more than 180 degrees of unbuilt, verdant land full of mature fruit trees. HHF radically exploits this situation, thematizes it, and accentuates it even more with a few simple moves: The main level – composed of the kitchen, dining, and living areas – as well as the stair to the upper and lower floors are open spaces, entirely glazed and blending seamlessly with the outdoors.
