Our Escondido Beach residence project involved redesigning everything without (apparently) changing anything. We carved out the existing home's interior and straightened every elevation— going right back to the pure structure. Every corner and crevice was widened, and every square foot was been optimized to create a more usable floor plan defined by pure form and clean lines.
The Edelmann Residence is located in a quiet, bright and scenic location within the forests of Switzerland's Basel-Country. To reduce the height of the home, we clad the mezzanine rooftop in mirrored glass, so that it reflects and fades into its surroundings and appears as one with the forest.
