Adaptive Architecture Home embraces natural topography

Sometimes the topography of a place can help create great architectures and this house on view is a good example. This house takes the form of an elongated cube because of the descending topography and it is adaptive as it can be extended easily depending on the needs of a family. It comprises of two floors where the entrance on the ground is level with the east while the garden is accessible from the west. The first floor gives a view of the alpine landscape and this is what differentiates the two in terms of overall quality. The top part therefore consists all rooms including the living space while the ground floor has utility rooms like the office. Amazingly, this structure is inserted into the site without affecting much of the earthwork.[Architects:Felber Szélpal Architekten ag, Solothurn and Photographs: Bruno Helbling, Zurich]
