Confignon House @Confignon

Confignon House by LOCALARCHITECTURE

Confignon House in Switzerland

Designed by Local Architecture and located in Confignon, Switzerland, this new dwelling occupies the totality of the constructible area on an elongated plot. Benefiting from the mild natural grade of the orchard, the house is formed by three spaces which shift down the land. Each ‘unit’ is a volume which varies in height and which opens sideways towards the garden on both sides.

CONFIGNON HOUSE ROOMS

The daylight space (living room and kitchen) occupies the central area, while the guest room is located in the upper level of the house. The rooms of the children are distributed in the lower part of the volume. Another room completes the ground-floor. Two utility cores dissociate the main living spaces, while a peripheral passageway cadenced by the changes of levels connects them.

STRUCTURE AND WINDOWS

The structural concrete shell that ensures protection against the noise pollution coming from the road bellow, expresses the uneven shape resulting from the height variations of the interior spaces. The large windows reinforce the transparency of the building while that the vertical rhythm and depth of the pinewood posts accentuate the close relationship between each interior space and its outside extension.
