bunq architectes: transformation and creation of two apartments

recently completed by swiss firm bunq architectes, ‘transformation and creation of two apartments’ is a renovation an old farmhouse’s barn and existing adjacent building in corsier, switzerland into two neighboring residences. the rough surfaces of the original barn structure have been worked and smoothed creating the precise intervention within the interior space. stairs lead inhabitants through the open plan, directing attention upwards to the vaulted ceilings which have been surfaced with wooden planks. the kitchen and living rooms have been elevated to the highest level allowing views through the large clerestory windows. natural daylight filters downward to the lower floors through the geometric bookcase which serves as a partition between the library and corridor to the study.

 

contrasting the first dwelling, the vertical circulation of the second apartment is contained within an enclosed stairway, leading to a spatial arrangement which branches from corridors. the interior is connected to a garden at the ground level providing opportunities for an outdoor experience.
