Situated in the hills of Kusnacht, near Zurich in Switzerland, this 1960’s villa required complete re-modelling. The new owners’ brief asked for a self-contained flat at the lowest level (to be rented) and a new house for themselves on the upper two. By demolishing the upper floor, re-arranging spaces within the existing concrete frame, adding a new lightweight roof, and introducing a new split-level entrance, the full potential of the villa in this picturesque location has been realised.
