Modern lakeside apartment designed for a young couple


Milan-based architectural practice, dotdotdot, has designed the House on the Lake project. Completed in 2013, the contemporary apartment is located in Lugano, Switzerland.

Designed for a young professional couple, this modern apartment in a residential district along the banks of Lake Ceresio boasts bespoke furnishings all made to measure for the interior design project and supervised by studio dotdotdot.


According to the designers: “The home measures 170 sq.m. (1,830 sq.ft.) and has been designed with universal appeal based on neutral colours and clean lines. In the large area of the lounge and dining room, wooden features embellish the ambience and hide a small utility washroom. The ad hoc texture of the birch wood adds a touch of continuity to the spaces. The natural hues of the wood shimmer with light flowing from the spacious lakeside terrazzo.

“The table in the living-room has been created from a single slab of marble supported by wooden legs; the quality finish can be attributed to the attentive skillful work of the master craftsmen. The contrast between the different materials can be seen in the large zinc block in the kitchen, lined with MDF fiber panels. One of the common features of the design is the use of full-body coloured MDF to line the furniture units, for example, the large wheel-mounted dresser lined in blue and the inside surfaces of the bed/wardrobe unit. The splashes of colour in the bedroom interface remotely with the colour injected into the living room.Simple rows of light illuminate the kitchen, the dining table and the large shelving units along the walls.”
