An impressive Lake House by SAOTA is a contemporary residence and office with guest annex, located on the banks of Lake Geneva, Switzerland. The architecture of this Geneva based family home was inspired by the dramatic triangular shape of the site with its very restrictive design and building parameters. Besides, powerful sculptural forms and lines, and the use of bold colors and sheer materials result in a taut composition.
Also, the contemporary architectural spaces defined the design direction which resulted in a modern approach to the interior. Because of the irregular shape of the main living spaces, furniture with organic and / or rounded shapes were specifically designed and selected. As a result, the house is combined by wonderful living room idea; dining room idea; kitchen idea; bedroom idea; bathroom idea; outdoor living idea; and other great ideas. Surely, it is an expression of an emerging African aesthetic in the sure way it plays with texture, materials and the way it connects to the exterior.

The Lake House Gallery:
Text by the Architects: This family home and office on the banks of Lake Geneva, with architecture by SAOTA and interiors by ARRCC, was designed for a successful Senegalese businessman based in Switzerland. An Impressive Lake House draws on the owner’s heritage to advance an emerging African‐inspired aesthetic in its sculptural form, materiality, and textural quality. The triangular shape of the dramatically located lakeside site, in addition to strict planning parameters and prohibitions, imposed considerable restrictions on the design. The response was to carve architectural forms from the triangular footprint of the site and to create a ‘reductive’ sculptural design of round‐edged cubes and triangular masses.
