In Lugano, Switzerland, Daniel Buren and Davide Macullo has completed a house that lies on the cusp between art and architecture, a living sculpture. Alongside its primary role in protecting man from the elements, it is an architecture that needs art to complete it.
The cross in vertical projection, the rounding of the edges and the simple torsion of the roof make it dynamic and reinterprets the archetype of the house. It is an enclosure that defines a dynamic space. Each window is calibrated and oriented towards selected views of the surrounding landscape. Each point is different and every breath of the landscape suggests different things. The basement is in reinforced concrete, the upper volume entirely in wood, without interpreting the traditional construction type of the Alps, but using it as it is.
