This house, in an affluent suburb of Zurich, replaces a previous house on the
site. The brief for the new house included fairly standard requirements such
as a fitness room, open-plan kitchen, elevator, and underground garage.
The unusual aspect of the brief was accommodation for the clients’
collection of many thousands of rare books.

The triangular site, and various zoning and building restrictions, dictated
the shape of the house. The architect’s concept was one of continuous
movement throughout the house, stretching and extending the spaces
according to classical enfilade principles.

Each room is unique in size and form: the entry is conical, the entrance hall
is a double-story cube, the loggia is triangular, and the library has a curved,
glazed wall. Several balconies extend the floor area and allow stunning views
of the surrounding landscape, which includes Lake Zurich and The Alps.

The three-sided glazing of the library on the ground floor is mirrored-glass,
which protects the books from damaging UV rays. Depending on the time
of day and the lighting conditions, either the stored books or the reflected
garden are visible. The upper floors are completed in bright lime rendering
and the windows in natural anodized aluminum.
