Markus Wespi Jérôme de Meuron Architetti a Swiss-based design studio has designed Brione House. Completed in 2005, this chic contemporary home can be found in Brione sopra Minusio, a small town in Ticino, Switzerland. The new building is located in a privileged but sprawled urban area above Locarno, with an overwhelming view on the city, the surrounding mountains and the lake. The project is a discrete reaction to a daily subject: to build into a crowded and chaotic urbanized area. The water of the swimming pool, embedded in the valley facing cube, merges perfectly with the lake. Two large openings, with wooden grids serving as moveable gates provide access and beautiful views.
