Horizontal House in Switzerland with Interior Courtyard

Located in Lupsingen, near Basel in Switzerland, this modern horizontal house by Luca Selva Architects is a contemporary contradiction to its pastoral surroundings. Situated on a grassy slope and surrounded by rural residential buildings, this unusual, private home stands out for its uniform slate-clad roof and facade, with lots of windows and skylights dotting the low-profile, minimalist design. The strong horizontal presence of the house makes for an unexpected interior, which is spacious, bright and flooded with natural light. An interior courtyard provides a surprise retreat into the outdoors, with rooms radiating out from this central focal point. This courtyard house design features sliding-glass doors that open onto the patio, bringing the outdoors into virtually every part of the house. Luca Selva Architects
