On both the front and Lake Lucerne-facing facades, this sculptural villa expresses itself like a Vasarely op-art painting or sculpture.

Looking toward Mount Pilatus, the white concrete structure’s circular openings allow framed views into this modernist home with exotic plants, lounge, guest tract ,and a staircase accessed through one of the ground floor openings.
The lake side offers beautiful mountain views of the Rigi and the Bürgenstock while showcasing a loggia made of round glass bricks.
The basement hugs the sloped terrain and offers a large fitness area with a 25 meter pool — half inside, half outside — inserted in a white Terrazzo plate, extending from the pool bar along the boathouse made of white-tinted, rough-jetted concrete into Lake Lucerne.
