This 450 m2 single-family home set on a 8000 m2 plot enjoys sweeping views of the Alps, the lake and the Jura mountains. The interior layout takes clever advantage of the slightly sloping terrain. The two-story house is L-shaped and has a full basement, which is partly habitable. The traditional closed layout thus extends over three levels. The owners wanted to incorporate some powerful elements from the work of Edwin Lutyens (1869–1944), an English architect they admire. The roofline, imposing chimney, stone cladding on the base of the walls and window surrounds, and narrow French windows suggest a revisited Victorian style. In contrast, the enclosed veranda is resolutely contemporary. The drive, gate, terraces and doors are in keeping with the house’s overall architectural style. Each detail is designed to give visitors a first impression of the unique character of the home and the tastes of its owners.
