Villa G in Sorengo
Contemporary Home in Lugano, Switzerland – design by SCAPE architects
22 Oct 2016
Villa G in Sorengo on Lake Lugano
Location: Lake Lugano, Switzerland
Design: SCAPE, architects
Located in the residential area of Lugano, the house is surrounded by a garden on the edge of the alpine forest.
The architects designed the Villa G as an alternation of open spaces and full volumes, hosting reception areas and service spaces.
From the entrance, positioned two meters away from the road, a long corridor crosses the entire main floor, broadening as it reaches the sitting room and dining area.
A central patio increases further the important relationship between inside and outside.
The volumes, made up of load-bearing partition walls, are of different heights and emerge at the upper level to construct an artificial landscape that contrasts with the natural landscape of the mountains.
Villa G has been designed in order to grant to all the internal areas to open towards the wood, allowing architecture to become an environmental filter.
The G family home in Sorengo, on the edge of Lugano in Ticino, is the category of villa that Palladio-1 put forward as a contrast with the town house.
The site, a long narrow strip of land on a steep slope, is part of a hilly area, bordered on its short sides by a private road and another property.
On the long sides it is fringed by another site being developed and a wood that is legislatively bound.
To enjoy the fine view of the mountains and part of the lake, the ground level must by raised by three metres.
Iñaki Abalos-2 would define Villa G as the product of pragmatism.
The spaces are articulated according to the client’s precise requests, such as the fact that all the main living spaces on the ground floor, with a second floor devoted only to a games room, guest area and the solarium with a heated pool.As a house, it is neither too large nor too small.
There is room in it for all that is needed for each member of the family to live life autonomously.
