Julissa Xirah. Modern House. February 01st , 2017.
The house does have its quiet corners, too. Theres always a back wall, which helps give a more cosy feeling, Camenzind says. And you can close the blinds to create a peaceful, private corner.’ Practical considerations
Called Flexhouse and completed in March 2016 by Swiss architecture and design studio Evolution Design, the four storey, 173 sq metre (1,862 sq foot) home has an open plan living, dining and kitchen space on the ground floor, two bedrooms and bathrooms on the first floor, a studio with two large terraces on the second floor and a basement level with underground garage and utility space. But it is the striking exterior architecture and the breathtaking 180degree views across Lake Zurich to the mountains beyond that really capture the imagination. Architecture in motion
Flexhouse is anything but a square box. The design features a floor plan that goes from wide to narrow to follow the railway lines and shape of the plot. The striking façade wraps around the building, drawing the eye continuously upward: the house never feels stiff or still, there are always elements drawing your eye throughout the space and to the views beyond.
A completely white kitchen with a minimalist style stands out beneath a black ceiling and with a set of black hanging lamps. In the back of this area, a desk with some accompanying seats create a working corner.
Through its white staircase we reach the interior, where white colors, as well as modern and minimalist lines, are the protagonists, giving the large living room a sensation of cleanliness and brightness.
