living house, lake geneva

The swiss architects kaufmann widrig designed 'living house' located on the southern side

villa. the plot is long and thin and its narrow side meets the shore of the lake.

the building is placed in amongst the shoreline boathouses and reflects their geometry
and materials. it is also consistent with the pattern of boathouses and villas that exists along that
part of lake geneva by not extending beyond the boundaries of the pre-existing here for more
