These two homogenous, single-occupancy detached houses have been completed by L3P Architekten in 2011. 2 EFH Wingert Oberweningen is located in the picturesque countryside setting of Oberweningen, Switzerland. It has monolithic, asymmetrical structures, developed as a reinterpretation of a simple detached house and supported by conspicuous roof and facade.
As a reinterpretation of a simple detached house, it has been split into two and resulting in two ‘polygonal bodies. These bodies are formed in which the mutual proximity becomes a quality for the building. These two single-occupancy detached houses also have been developed ion a countryside setting despite the small size of the parcel of land.
The development of these detached houses also takes a new path in reference to spacial and volumetry definitions. The detached house’s basic type is split just like the work being akin to a work of sculpturer. In the water basin, the mirroring of facade and water can hint at a clear vision within the rooms without direct insight into each other. The rooms become a special place with strong intimacy and vibrancy.
The roof and facade materialization are conspicuous. With the artist Thomas Sonderegger, the architect experiments with a surface of galvanized steel and ables to fabricate a sheet with a vital and unique expression that deployed for the first time on the façade and roof. The main design is also added to the monolithic overall picture where an association with a sculpturer’s work is given too.
