Zumthor Ferienhäuser

Posted on Fri, 11 Jan 2013 by midcenturyjo

Take me away to a land of snow, a land of steep mountains and tumbling valleys. I want to hide away from the world in a wooden house clinging to the slopes in an age-old hamlet. Annalisa and Peter Zumthor’s timber houses perch above their age blackened neighbours in Leis in Val, Switzerland (population 20). Once inside the houses wrap you in their close embrace, while classic midcentury and modern furniture plays against the soft golden gleam of the wooden walls. But turn outwards, look through those windows and a wonderland awaits, winter or summer. Zumthor Ferienhäuser – holiday homes to rent.

I have to agree with Gerard – it is stunning. I love the view from the balcony. I can imagine enjoying a Glühwein or two there.

Monika says:

Makes me achingly homesick (we've just returned after almost 5 years in Switzerland).

Love this home, this village.

Also, the soapstone stove is gorgeous; wish there were a source.

Zumthor amazes me. He was given the most prestigious awards in architecture but he remains true to his values and origins. He could have done many prestigious projects like museums and more but he prefers to create awe inspiring homes. Perfect example here.
