Slick Three-Apartment Urban Villas

Nicola Probst Architetti's Design Boasts Smooth Corners

— August 26, 2019 — Eco
This chic and sizable urban villa is located on the hills of Lugano, Switzerland. Effortlessly adapting the structure to a slanted and difficult terrain, Nicola Probst Architetti ensures that the structure communicates a modern and welcoming aesthetic.

The urban villa boasts a total of three apartments. The facade of the building boasts an interconnected aspect that skillfully balances out the relation between external and internal spaces. Moreover, the geometric sensibilities and the round corners make for a visually appealing motif that embraces modernism wholeheartedly.

When designing the urban villa — officially, the project goes by the name of 'Villa 4L,' Nicola Probst Architetti was mindful of the environment, ensuring energy use relies on sustainable methods. As a result, the structure boasts a heat pump, photovoltaic, and thermal solar panels.
