Architecture by SAOTA and interiors by ARRCC, this family home and office on the banks of Lake Geneva is home to a successful businessman from Senegal based in Switzerland.
With aesthetics in sculptural, material and textural African form, this dramatic yet peaceful beauty is quite the sight.
Working closely with the homeowners, ARRCC Director Mark Rielly sourced from a wide range of South African and international décor and furniture brands. Furniture with organic and rounded shapes was selected to accommodate the irregular shape of the main living spaces.
‘The contemporary architectural space defined the design direction, resulting in a modern approach with brands of diverse origin chosen for the décor,’ said Rielly.
Interior finishes include walnut joinery, marble and travertine floors and light granite wall cladding with stainless steel detail insets. Externally dark zinc cladding covers the sculptural forms with textured granite used on walls and the floors. The living area features a curved glass wall façade facing the lake, into the dining area and kitchen on the ground floor. The bedrooms and en-suites are located on the top level.
Through the collaboration of European and African design the interior successfully reflects the global family that live within the spaces. Take a look at the home tour below.
