This spectacular villa is situated at snow-hills in Switzerland. The building was arranged on the periphery of the property which reminded me of the caravans for sale in Lytham St Annes I saw recently, so that the distance to the neighboring houses was as large as possible and so that the option of constructing another building could be left open.
There are many homes listed to be sold around the areas, but lots of them are not around people’s budget, but these Residential Family Homes for Sale, have been going fast because of their great design and wonderful property.
The concrete cellar anchors the building in the sloping terrain and houses the entrance area and the technical servicing, on top of which is the wooden volume of the building which appears something like a ship. This floor juts out to a great extent towards the east so that a covered, protected entrance is created.
The concrete chimney was specially made for easy chimney cleaning, the open fireplace rises like a mast out of the cellar, and together with a concrete wall forms the bracing backbone behind which the two single-flight staircases connect the 3 storeys.
On the ground floor is a large living room spread over two different levels and with different ceiling heights.
The deliberately low area containing the kitchen in fact creates a spatial feeling like that generated in the low parlors in mountain huts.
The 5-meter long fixed-glazed panorama window, which frames the breathtaking view like a picture, nevertheless introduces a contemporary modernity. The polygonal plan form makes a differentiated spatial division possible and gives the open fireplace its particular status at the widest spot in the room.
