L House is a result of putting maximum volume on the plot. That was one of the main contractor wishes. When O House by the same architect, Philippe Stuebi, was dedicated to circular forms this house is dedicated to clear lines and unique rooms in size and form. There are conical entry area with wardrobe and guest WC., large cubic double-story entrance hall, triangular loggia colored in pink, double-story inside rounded library which is downstairs and so on. The ground floor walls consist of large concrete elements which are interrupted by space-high glazing. The three-sided glazing of the library in the ground floor is mirrored-glass. Depending upon time of day and lighting conditions, in these glazing you can see the stored books or the reflected garden. The garden and other trees could be seen almost from almost every window because they surround the house from all sides. The upper floors are implemented in bright lime rendering and the glazing in nature-anodize aluminum.
