Zurich studio Kit designed the 'House in the March District,' a split-level residence, which, as its name states, is located in Switzerland's March District.

The clients were a family who desired as much space as the small site allowed. In order to comply with their wishes, the architects went for a split-level approach. The rooms are arranged over five split-levels that follow the land's natural, sloping topography. The system resulted in a living room that cantilevers over an external dining area, as well as a smaller ecological footprint.

The architects explain, "The building was designed as a split-level to create a connection to the surrounding garden. This allows a sequence of spaces with different degrees of intimacy, light qualities and orientations." Essentially, each area is distinct from the next, thanks to differing levels of light, privacy and outdoor view. Stats for Split-Level Swiss Homes Trending: Older & Chilly
