House in S.Abbondio

Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects as Architects

This house is standing on a steep slope in S. Abbondio, it’s designed for two people and their guests. The property adjoins on three sides to existing and new constructions, while tothe downhill side it’s attached at the access road and above itprovides free views to the Lake Maggiore and to the mountains.


Theclear easy-cut volumetry and also the naturalisticmaterializing of the concrete in the same colour like the natural rocks, integrates the new buildingwith caution in the heterogeneous area.Concrete gets the natural stone of the modern era, The irregularly positioned window perforations maintain the monolith and create a sculptural unit.


Spartanrooms and courtyards open up horizontally and vertically to water, forests and mountains, light and sun, they live from the poetry of nature.


The limitationof a few basic materials like concrete and natural wood, generates a flowing interaction of interior and exterior and a natural archaic atmosphere.
