House in Riehen by Reuter Raeber Architects

This House in Riehen, Switzerland, was designed by Reuter Raeber Architects and built in 2016. The total floor area of the house is 240m² (2,583ft²).

The concrete construction on the ground level and the wood construction on the upper level interlock at two key junctions: the transverse concrete wall balanced over the fireplace forms the rear wall of the upstairs master bedroomand concrete bathtub; on the opposite side by the staircase, the wood construction runs through to the ground level. Two differing construction methods join in mutual dependency. What emerges is a static balancing act that unleashes an energetic, expansive sense of space and engenders an architectural language rich in associations.
