CROSSOVER, LUGANO / Watching over the Northern entrance to Lugano, Crossover has been designed as a landmark indicating the start of the city by means of a plain architectural volume with sharp edges.
The project has been inspired by the abstract, structured shapes of basalt rocks and is built up over seven levels.
Thanks to the discontinuity in different volumes, Crossover guarantees continuous sunlight to living spaces and protection to commercial areas.
The residential part faces South with large windows, offering panoramic views of lake Ceresio and the small lake of Muzzano, while the offices occupy the Northern and central part of the construction. It is both a functional and sculptural architecture which stands out as an urban landmark at the centre of inflows to Lugano.
