A modern retreat in the Swiss Alpes

Hej hej! Sometimes, when it feels like winter is never going to end the only thing you can do is embrace it. And this is what I would do if I stayed at this chalet dug into the mountain side in Switzerland. Designed by Peter Zumthor of SeARCH and CMA it sleeps 9 and is completely heated by green energy from a local dam. Skiing anyone?!

 There are plenty more of pictures here! Fantastic architecture and of course loving the concrete, the lighting and the funriture. But what do you think - could you stay here or would you prefer a more traditional alpine chalet?

And just before I head off - hello to all new lovely readers! Great to see you on here. I hope you feel inspired and will come back and visit soon! kram!

Love the Wegner papa bear chair in the second photo - so difficult to find (which translates to "so ridiculously expensive if you DO find one).

An amazing bit of architecture and design. Very inspiring...

Hahaha, I absolutely love that chair too, know exactly what you mean. I'm still hoping to find a neglected one in an attic one day along with the 'egg chair' :)

Wow! That is just an amazing house. It is modern and yet still very close to nature. I love the concept you used especially in the dining area. It looks beautiful! I would just like to ask if those walls and floors are concrete. Because they just add so much to the overall look of the place. The greyness is just perfect! This is a wonderful share!
