In the Midst of the Majestic Mountains: Small ex-military house has been transformed into a luxury re-treat with stunning views

15 August, 2014  |  Exterior, House Interior

Looking out to the immense mountains in the distance, with the mist swirling around your feet, you are met by a small chalet perfectly positioned in view of the surrounding landscape. Designers at Ralph Germann Architectes turned this former military building located in Sion, Switzerland, into an amazing country house in the shadow of the mountains. Before the renovation, the exterior was classic and very useable, but the interior was a complete mess and had to be stripped back completed again. This very tiny space has been transformed into a compact modern kitchen, full dining room and living room with closed fireplace, two bedrooms, open-plan living area and two small bathrooms. The best aspect of this project is the amazing views of the mountains and surrounding landscape which are simply breathtaking. Photos Lionel Henriod.
