Clear view: Glass house by L3P Architects

Slender and precipitous are the best words to describe the lot, which is located among the vineyards of Dielsdorf, near Zurich. An area of just 5 X 9 metres was available for building on – too little for a classic house with masonry walls and a traditional stairway. In order to solve this quandary, L3P Architekten developed a construction of steel, glass and concrete with 83 m² of living space for House Rebberg. The black exposed concrete is an omnipresent feature that forms the construction, various spaces and even a bookcase which simultaneously acts as a supporting element for the entire building. The entrance to the house is integrated into the subterranean garage. A significant amount of sunlight and a clever colour scheme add a lighter touch to the somewhat gloomy exposed concrete.
