SAOTA makes no compromise in their artwork. Elegant modern and luxurious, these are the main three words defining the residences erected by these architects. The dream home ahead enjoys the company of a lake through transparency in one of the most desirable locations: Geneva, Switzerland.
The establishment, entitled Lake House, serves as both a residence and an office . The client is an architecture enthusiast, this being the 4th home designed by SAOTA for him. This 4th small home covers no less then 2800 square meters of family and office space. The sculptural design materialized accedes to the owners collection of dream homes in Cape Town, Paris and Senegal.
The modern structure stands out from the first glance: fluid yet bold an rigid, it defines the shape despite the tendency to fragment the volume into shards. This spectacular structure has been designed in collaboration with SRA Kössler & Morel Architects and it`s meant to reflect a promising African aesthetics influence in the European context. As you would expect the interior design has been envisioned by Antoni Associates, the entire home has been built on a triangular lot that`s emphasized by the surroundings. As a result the very core of the home, the living room, along with the spaces gravitating around it are outdoors-oriented, taking advantage of the surreal views.
The main volume of the home is connected to the adjacent annex via the cinema, spa area, auditorium and garages on the basement level. In the living room a fluid curved wall in glass connected to a sculptural roof canopy anchors the design into another world, creating a an extraordinary monumental welcoming space.
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.
On the upper level the home shelters the private spaces like bedrooms, a lobby and en-suite, all accessed through a glass cylinder encased lift. What do you think? Define this home in just five words in the comment section bellow, we would love to hear your opinion.
