Zurich, Switzerland, is the heart of world banking. Due to many large-sum money investments and omnipresent wealth, luxurious residences are a common sight in the city. Even so, the Feldbalz House as a strikingly modern building that combines solid concrete with large tracts of glass.
The Feldbalz House was designed by Gus Wüstemann Architects as a sculpture looking for freedom and social integration. Interestingly, it has almost no walls or other traditional architectural elements. Apart from the structure's main skeleton, the building is all terraces and partitions, with glassed-in corridors and panoramic windows that offer an amazing view over the landscape. There are two upper floors and a basement just below it and concrete staircases that link them up as well as a swimming pool sunk in daylight.
As for the aesthetics, both the exterior and the interior are drop dead simple. While the first has a grayish and industrial look typical for every concrete construction, the latter is white, clean, and surprisingly spacious.
