From its elevated location above Kilchberg, this exclusive residential project offers a 180-degree panorama of the city of Zurich, the lake and the Alps. The building containing nine apartments, is staggered in height and appears to have slightly offset layers: the garden level, the first and second floors, and the attic level are stressed horizontally. The building offers between 149 and 260 square metres of living space and, running along an east/west axis, makes optimum use of natural daylight. On the side of the building with lake views, spacious terraces seamlessly extend the light-flooded interiors. The interiors of the apartments are intentionally low-key, providing a perfect platform for individual design concepts. Light, natural colours and clear-cut shapes underscore the elegant atmosphere. The living area combines a relaxation zone with cooking and dining areas in a generously sized space. Translucent glass elements subtly delimit the bedrooms, bathrooms and walk-in wardrobes. Private courtyards bring light and green into these spaces. Most of the apartments have their own spa area or gym. The exclusive property has a underground garage, from which residents can enter their apartments directly. High-quality, external staircases lead through the park-like landscaped garden to end in an impressively designed entrance hall.
Kilchberg Barrel- Tadashi Kawamata, Artwork for Apartments on Alte Landstrasse in Kilchberg.
On the wellgroomed lawn of the villa’s front garden, Tadashi Kawamata builds into the ground. Specially for this site and for this project, the internationally renowned artist has developed Barrel Kilchberg: a seemingly makeshift wooden window sculpture that contrasts and raises questions in an arresting manner. Until now, this artist has never departed from the surface. The new building by Kyncl Schaller Architekten and the corresponding construction work enables him to realise the design of a round space, sunk into the ground. Guests are invited to spend time on the benches to retreat, to relax and to take a moment to find peace.
