Lake Lugano House by JM Architecture | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

Italian studio JM Architecture has designed the Lake Lugano House, a 3,700 square foot polygonal glass house built around the lake in the south-east of Switzerland, at the border between Switzerland and Italy.

Great attention is given to the environmental aspects, as the use of geothermal energy, roof gardens, the rain-water collection system, the choice of highly efficient low-emittance glass insulated with argon gas, to optimize the thermal efficiency of the shell and the use of natural sun shading as the placement of deciduous trees in the south-west area of the building.
