SAOTA Lake House Switzerland 1 Outdoor Oriented Dream Home/Office Implants Modern African Aesthetic in Switzerland

We’re used to SAOTA‘s impressive and imposing residences and pleased to see each of them unravel before our virtual eyes. This time we’ll be admiring a fascinatingly transparent Lake House in Geneva, Switzerland. Attracting the eye with an unusual architecture, the building acts as both a residence and an office. The client is a fan of the illustrious architecture team and this 2,800 sqm family home and office is the 4th home SAOTA has designed for him. The owner can boast about a wonderful collection of homes in Cape Town and Paris and Senegal. This one is located on Lake Geneva, and features sculptural design lines shaping a provocative architecture.

The contemporary structure designed in collaboration with SRA Kössler & Morel Architects reflects the promising new African aesthetic in a European context. The open, bright and inviting interiors were imagined by Antoni Associates as a luscious cocoon resting on this triangular lot where creativity shaped an outdoor-oriented dream home. The main house is connected to the annex via the cinema, spa area, auditorium and garages on basement level. Combining rounded edges and triangular lines, architects designed a home where the double-height living room offers an ideal view of the lake. A curved wall in glass offers the possibility of creating a welcoming, sleek outdoor living area with a sculptural roof canopy anchoring the design. The upper level contains private spaces like the bedrooms, a lobby and en-suite, accessed via a glass cylinder encased lift. What do you think?
