‘resident rambert’ by swiss architecture firm aas cristobal delgado veluzat is a set of multi-storey buildings that together make up five separate dwellings in the western town of blonay, switzerland. located on a rolling slope with a sight towards the alps and lake geneva, the two volumes utilize the elements of colour to reflect and enhance the immediate surrounding.

carefully placed on the plot to frame and extend the landscape,  the interstitial space between the two structures preserves the greenery of the site. the approach is fringed by open areas of grass, integrating the natural elements to the overall, holistic design. an adjacent cemetery with a dense amount of trees sets the tone of the facades, which are finished in earthy shades of green and wheat.

yard space

extruded volumes generate outdoor patio spaces while giving the face of the dwellings a dynamic identity. utilizing a geometric language, the design showcases apertures of varying qualities – thin, bar code like windows to large, square openings. the rhythmic placement and size of these glazed surfaces are in accordance to ideal natural lighting and unique views towards the alps and lake.

  • This is nice enough “modern” design only the one aspect of modern life missing is the interconnectedness of the inside with the outside world – landscape scheme is weak and translation of indoors to outdoors is weak – try to think ‘outside of the box’ literally next time!
