Modern Holiday Home Integrated in a Picturesque Swiss Landscape: Lumbrein Residence
Lumbrein Residence is a spectacular single family home especially designed by Hurst Song Architekten as a holiday retreat. The building is located at the periphery of a picturesque village and has unobstructed views of the mountain peaks in Graubunden, Switzerland. Here is a short project description from the architects: “Responding to the neighboring barns, the exterior is clad with vertical wooden planks treated with a dark protective coating. The gabled roof is inclined perpendicularly to the mountain face, following suit of the traditional architecture of the region. The elimination of the eave allows the standing-seam copper roof to meet the top of the perimeter walls, eventually aging to match their color. The central staircase is composed of spruce planks spanning the concrete partitions allowing light to filter through to lower levels. These materials pervade the interior surfacing the floors walls and ceiling with matching wood with concrete surfaces relating to the vertical circulation“. Visually stunning landscape aside, what do you think of the design of this holiday retreat?
