Twin home in Minusio

The building is situated on a small plot of land on the hillside in Minusio and enjoys a magnificent view of Lake Maggiore.
The construction stands parallel to an old supporting stone wall which crosses the land lengthwise: the space between the wall and the house provides access to the two apartments.
The essential quality of the façade, with its strip windows and large picture windows, aims to exploit the beautiful view over the lake and the mountains: the horizontality of the construction contrasts with the verticality of the adjacent nineteenth-century villa.
