The Barber's House


This contemporary house located in Switzerland in the countryside near Geneva, is entirely made of glass and steel. It is located in a park with very old trees. The large openings in the house bring a dialogue between the building and its environment. The plan of the building is triangular. The south facade is composed of a metal mashrabiya bringing intimacy in the most private room of the building, and protecting from the sun.
