Christian Speck


Up a winding lane in a village nestled beneath the Swiss Alps. Climb a rustic stair and ... wow! This amazing renovation is by Christian Speck of Formzone. Lashings of rough and just enough luxe. It's sleek and minimalist modern meets stone monolith and I love it. Age old beams and so fresh you can smell it pine. I dream of a view of the alps like that. A remarkable house in a remarkable part of the world.

Beautiful work, the feeling of warmth and luxury within such a natural, exposed layout is incredibly well done. I'm like you, would love to own a space like this one day!

You're right - the view is amazing! I was just watching House Hunters International a few days ago as they were looking for properties near the Tuscany region. It made me want to run away to Europe...now I see this post and I want to all the more! ;)

Great design, I love the mix of white and natural textures.

I think this is Soglio in southern Switzerland, judging by the campanile and mountains behind. This place is so much worth visiting, its lovely. My grandmothers sister lived there a few years and i grew up not far away.

Mixing nice materials with old, rustic features and some wonderful mid-century modern pieces. Thanks for posting!

Man, this feels like the perfect house if ever I become filthy rich, as well as becoming moody and reclusive, with a penchant for writing novellas, drinking coffee and smoking all day. Heart!
