Bold Concrete House in the Swiss Hills

Bold Concrete House in the Swiss Hills

17 November, 2013  |  Exterior, House Interior

Starting on the outside and continuing on into the interior, concrete wraps around this home’s walls and runs into the ground. Smooth, flat stone are laid into the concrete that finds its way into the kitchen floors. A small bedroom is treated with concrete on the floors and walls. A window framed in honey colored wood has been placed at ground level, allowing light to come in from strange and varied angles. Designed by Swiss Wespi de Meuron Architekten, this concrete house is anything but cold and dreary. Despite the fact that the entire structure has been seemingly dipped in recycled rock, there is an honest openness that could not be duplicated with any other material. Strangely calming and organic, this concrete house expresses classy minimalist.
