RESIDENCE DU PARK, MONTAGNOLA / Residence du Parc is located in a clearing in the woods of Montagnola, on the Golden Hill above Lugano. There is a private park of 6,000 m² with an outdoor swimming pool and views of the surrounding mountains.
The residence consists of 11 apartments distributed over 3 floors, and two underground levels which house the garage at -1 and laundries, cellars and mechanical rooms at -2. In addition to the main entrance, there is the SPA and fitness area on the ground floor. The location and layout of the building fit into the morphological profile of the terrain and interact with neighbouring land, integrating as closely as possible with the surrounding natural environment and movement of the sun.
The superior standard apartments are surrounded by large, deep terraces. The glass windows are set back from the overhang ensuring the rooms are shaded and fresh when the summer sun is at its highest point and, vice versa, there is a generous diffusion of natural light when the suns’ trajectory is lower, i.e. in the morning, evening and winter.
The glass walls set back from the facade are visually absorbed in the building’s profile by the prominent frame that gives formal unity to the volume as a whole. An effect that is consolidated by an ingenious architectural solution: a wall inclined by 45 degrees at the main corner.
The underground waterproof structures were built by Drytech using visible concrete and the swimming pool was created with the Drytech Tank system.
