Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in an art gallery or library? Bauart Architects took this idea further and developed the A+P House. The stacked up wooden volumes sculpturally shape up the exterior of the house, while glass piercings in the walls allow clear views over the town of Meilen in Switzerland.
Once you went inside, the gallery-like interiors take over: “A staircase that connects six levels from basement to roof terrace, has been designed as an open access library with galleries. For the clients, it’s all about books and texts, thus every room has a library use other than its original purpose. To further highlight the significance of books, the ceiling above the ‘book tower‘ has been covered with a layer of gold, as a reverence to historical paintings“.houses pictures gallery
