Pyramid House by DF_DC
Alexander Zaxarov
Oct 7, 2020

Pyramid House designed by London-based DF_DC is a minimalist family house located in Tegna, Switzerland.

In its suburban context, the house appears as an extraneous object of a scale difficult to gauge and of intriguing character. Once inside, one is surprised by how the L-shaped plan is arranged underneath the pitched roofs and around the garden in opposition to the hermetic urban stance.

The series of spatial forms on the two floors resulting from the section, together with the carved openings in the bedrooms, do not reveal much to the outside and only become evident from the garden. From the adjacent vineyards, the house rises as a monumental, introverted form.
