Swiss Simplicity

While the Swiss may be known for their complicated timepieces, this modern abode shows that life in Switzerland doesn’t have to be complicated. Bringing together clean simplicity with natural textures, is this the perfect contemporary family home? Let’s find out.

The relaxing beauty of Seltisberg made for a great location to build this contemporary family home. A blend of materials have been used; from natural elements like wood and stone, to constructed components like steel, concrete and glass.

Owners Tina and Martin wanted a place for the family to come together to cook, work and play. As such, you’ll notice that many of the rooms flow together for a cohesive, open plan living arrangement.

The couple consulted with Wohlgemuth & Pafumi to design a modern house with plenty of light open spaces. There are three levels to the house, playing with the gradient of the land and the angles of the building.

A quiet corner in the attic of the home works like a gallery section where they can relax and smell what’s cooking downstairs! The slope of the roof is just like a typical Swiss chalet, but the rest of the house is completely modern.

As well as the wood materials, there are sections like the concrete decorative walls. The concrete was one of the trickiest elements of the build because there is only one chance to get the concrete right before it sets!

Downstairs in the wellness room is a sauna, bar and sofa. It’s a place to relax and socialize so that there is always an area in the home to unwind.

We especially love the mix of wood, concrete and metal here. This really sums up what the home was trying to achieve; a blend of materials to create modern spacious living. It’s not only visually pleasing but tactile too!

Having a tall room can be hard to heat, but as the house is south facing, it picks up much of the sun throughout the day. What’s more, only part of the room stretches all the way up.

We love the eclectic use of colors here in contrast with many of the sleek white parts of the home. It’s great to see these bursts of color -and who doesn’t love a banquette feature?

The blend of chairs with their soft velvet furnishings and the grain of the wooden table really make the room a cheerful and comforting place to be.

Inside and out, there are many great places to share moments with the family. From the outside, the striking visual shape makes it look as though the wood panels are blocks stacked within the concrete frame, with steel fastly secured on top.

Overall, this charming contemporary family home boasts unimpeded views and sets the pace for relaxation and family time. What do you think?
