In Zurich – a Serious Work of Art to Live in

There is something very Swiss about this gloriously clean-cut invention for living in – and on – that enhances the pristine lake view.

Swiss architect Gus Wüstemann makes a way to walk around in the sky overlooking the lake in Zurich.

A very Swiss sense of the comfort of orderliness pervades the house.

On the living floor, the entire wall opens to Switzerland’s clean mountain air.

The wide open bathroom would make you feel that you were brushing your teeth in the actual sky.

Altogether – this is a professional structure for experiencing the good life: the clean air and the wide blue skies in Zurich.
