The house was designed by the world-know Swiss architect Bruno Giacometti, brother of the world-known painter Albert Giacometti. He himself and his wife lived in this home until the age of 104 and 107 years. After their passing away the charitable foundation of epilepsy decided that a globegarden childcare center serving the public would be a suitable fit for this historic location.
