This beautiful family home was de­signed by Lutz Ar­chi­tects ac­cord­ing to the prin­ci­ples of feng shui. Overlooking Switzerland’s Lake Geneva, the house is set against a moun­tain­ous back­drop at the foot of the Jura moun­tains in Vaud, causing the home to stand out against the greenery of the surrounding woods. SunStyle solar shingles closely match the dark wood pan­elling of the con­struc­tion, contributing to a coherent aesthetic and generating clean energy. Thanks to its integrated solar roof, the house produces 300% of its annual power re­quire­ments.
