Completely Concrete Swiss Cabin in the Woods Is a Bit Harsh

New, 3 comments


The cozy cabin in the woods aesthetic is a little less cozy in this concrete cabin from Nickish Sano Walder Architects. Located in Graubünden, Switzerland, the tiny abode is modeled after an old barn that previously stood on the spot with the idea that the concrete formwork serves as "a fossilized version" of the barn. The one bedroom, one bath home is billed as an "unusual holiday home for two" and comes with central heating and a lot of decadent faux furs. A skylight and a fireplace soften up the interior, but the whole experience looks rather cold. While we're not sold on the concrete overload, we are smitten with the awesome rock formation situated outside the bathroom window. More rocks, less concrete, please.
