A series of glass cubes irradiated by light create unexpected perspectives in Motta Papiani Architetti’s Lomocubes residential project that overlooks the Lugano lakeshore.
“Lomocubes synthesizes the best relationship between interior and exterior spaces, giving from the living room of each unit a wonderful view on the lake.” says Motta Papiani Architetti. “A texture-in-motion built with a rigorous and wise use of materials leads to a seductive aesthetic result established on the succession between full and empty spaces, transparency and opacity”
“In order to establish a new perspective axis, MPA Architetti has decided to place the stairs and the entries to the units on the back of the complex. The resulting dramatic corridors oriented towards the living areas frame ecstatic panoramas onto the lake.”
“The result is emphasized on the façade by the bow windows: transparent glass cubes thrusting through empty space and able to synthesize the relationship between the viewer and its beautiful surroundings with an open view of 270°.”
“The back of the building, endowed of a second entrance, is characterized by a metal structure and wooden panels, with staves that screen the loggias of the master bedrooms that overlook on a lush internal garden with pool. The attic is conceived as a private villa, complete of all refined specifics and details, from the furniture to the bespoke handles and the exclusive glass pool projecting for 3 meters into empty space.”
Lomocubes was designed by the MPA Architetti Studio, Giuseppina Motta, Luca Papiani, and commissioned by Swiss entrepreneur Alessandro Lo Monaco.
