Apartment with panoramic views

This apartment is in a new high-rise residential tower in Zug. Situated on the east side of the building, the apartment offers a spectacular view of the city of Zug, the lake, and the surrounding Alpine mountains. A spacious kitchen, living room with panoramic views, and a loggia that forms part of a living room acquires greater exposure of daily life. We wished to realise a sequence of connected spaces, rather than dividing them. For example, we installed vertical louvers between the living room and loggia so that they can serve as a screen to allow light to pass through while providing privacy. In the master bedroom, there is also a large movable wall which one can slide open or move however possible. Ultimately, this apartment can be perceived as one open space.
