Settled on the ridge of a hillside in the village of Vitznau, Switzerland, this unusual concrete structure has a interesting secret. The owners of the house approached Lischer Partner Architekten with the idea of living in a wooden house, but due the the foggy surroundings, they needed something a little bit more robust. The architects came up with a solution and created a wooden house, surrounded by a concrete shell to protect the soft core. This resulted in a truly beautiful home, with a light and very modern interior. The slim planks of wood add texture and depth to the interior and help to give it warmth and vitality. The large windows are an added bonus, as they look out towards the wonderful foggy lake ahead.
