Named “House on the Hillside”, Marchal + Fürstenberger Architects have created a the three-story building in Arlesheim, Switzerland where the top floor appears to be floating.  Each level is designed quite differently. The basement is fused with the topography of the hillside, the ground floor is surrounded with floor to ceiling glass walls which marry the worlds of interior living and the rough natural landscape, and the private top story holds the bedrooms and bathrooms.  The entire structure rest nicely within the hillside and sets a new standard for noninvasive living.
