Residential Architecture: Kirchplatz Office & Residence by Oppenheim and Huesler Architekten: “..Florida-based firm Oppenheim Architecture + Design and Swiss studio Huesler Architekten have created offices for themselves in an eighteenth century building in northern Switzerland and constructed a new house in the garden behind..Located just outside Basel in Muttenz, the renovated building provides Oppenheim with a European studio and also contains a meeting room for the use of the local community..New windows bring extra daylight into the white-washed offices on the upper storeys, which connect to the ground floor with a metal-framed spiral staircase..The new timber-clad house is screened behind the existing building and has two storeys above ground as well as one below..One side of the house is recessed at the back, creating a terrace that is framed by exposed structural columns..Living rooms occupy the ground floor, while bedrooms are located on the floors above and below..”  Extensive glazing and interesting fenestration, natural light; multiple terraces, interesting materiality and interior volumes, wood detailing; weathered wood cladding..(16-image interior and exterior slideshow)..
