The main feature of the house are the dynamic system of slopes (defined by earthworks and retaining walls) and the shifts and folds in the concrete structure.
This system creates its own topography and defines both the living spaces and the spatial relationships between interior and exterior.
The main structure is defined by exposed concrete slabs and walls and by cross-section service elements containing the stairs, the fireplace and the kitchen.

Lugano is a city in southern Switzerland’s Italian-speaking Ticino region. Its Swiss-Mediterranean mix of cultures is closely related to that of Italy’s northern Lombardy region. This mix is reflected in its architecture and cuisine.
