A house on the outskirts of Geneva, Switzerland includes two apartments of differing size yet gives the impression of a single unit thanks to a pitched roof over a diamond shaped plan.
From clavienrossier architectes hes/sia:
It sits right on the line between the city and nature. The building, backed by a paved access ramp, is placed in the north east corner of the site. The space between the building and the forest allows for a swimming pool and a large open garden.
A pitched roof over a diamond shaped plan, allows each apartment to have its own orientation. This distinct geometry allows for a greater degree of privacy for the residents and when viewed from the outside, gives the impression of a single unit.
