Inviting Retreat in Switzerland Opening Up to Fantastic Views: House Weinfelden

Located on a challenging sloped terrain with extensive views over the town of Weinfelden in Switzerland, this mountain family home “coated” in wood looks very inviting. The project (initially discovered by Freshome on ArchDaily) was developed by K_m Architektur as a welcoming retreat, partially closed towards the street. The opposite facade reveals a lovely mix of balconies and suspended terraces, ensuring each room its own outdoor exit.

Wood is also the dominant material employed inside the house, resulting in cozy, welcoming living zones.  According to the architects, House Weinfelden is structured as follows: “The upper floor houses the private bedrooms of the parents with a great rooftop terrace. The ground floor contains a generous dining and living space with a stove acting as a room divider as well as two more bedrooms for the children. Positioned in front of the dining and living area, a roofed terrace encircles the building and links the interior and the exterior space through room-high glazing“. Sustainable features of the project include natural construction materials, a solar hot-water-system and geo–thermal heating.

    What a wonderful property, set among an incredible view. It’s a great tough to have an exit to the outside from each room.
