House on Slope is a
Architecture by Binder Architektur AG – Hans Binder
House on Slope is one of a series of single-family houses built by the same architectural firm since 1995 and developed further and further on a former vineyard slope in a small rural community in the canton of Zurich. Originally planned as a wooden house, it was built in solid construction at the request of the owner. The youth and guest rooms are located in the basement with front play lawn and fireplace, in the attic is the parents’ area. On the access floor is the shared living-dining room with open kitchen, centrally placed fireplace and west terrace. Special mention should be made of the spacious sports and wellness area under the double garage with a loggia in front.
Almost all windows are oriented room-high to the view and to the south, against the street to the north the house seems rather closed.
