Rugged Concrete House Surprises With Sleek, Glassy Interiors

Despite what its nondescript facade and rusty metal door might suggest, this bumpy concrete house in southern Switzerland isn't an abandoned bunker—it's not even only one story. Once inside, you'd find that the structure, the work of Swiss firm Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects spans three floors on a hillside, forming a sleek, minimalist home for folks not terribly afraid of sharp edges. Employing a material palette that includes stone, metal, and a ton of glass and wood, the home looks surprisingly livable, especially as glass walls, balconies, and cut-outs open up the otherwise dense structure to the leafy yard and surroundings.
