Lake Constance, Switzerland
Overlooking Lake Constance towards the German shores, this mixed use development represents modern ideals of the Live-Work life. Transparent connections to the outdoors reveal the natural beauty of the region, as the office building’s mass in neatly tucked away into the hillside. Ample natural light perforates the spaces from large light wells. Photovoltaics, geothermal, day lighting, and passive heating and cooling techniques make this a very sustainable development.
