An intriguing Brutalist villa is on the market in Muzzano, a town in Switzerland’s Ticino canton. Designed in 1964 by Mario Campi and Franco Messina, the 639-square-meter (6,878 square feet) home was recently updated by Italian practice Droulers Architecture. Still, it retains that Milanese glam vibe prevalent in Europe during that time that still looks stunning today.

Concrete, glass, and wood expanses characterize the split-level International Style home. Coffered concrete ceilings top the double-height living area (and other parts of the residence), where wood-paneled walls are painted in a rich forest green. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of a Japanese-inspired pond and garden beyond, while a row of windows on the upper level frame a jungle-like courtyard. Glimpses of Lake Lugano can be enjoyed from the home as well.

Other incredible details abound, like planar sections forming walkways and steps, a gorgeous indoor swimming pool, step-down kitchen and dining, and numerous outdoor spaces including balconies, decks, and terraces. As for the private quarters, there are six bedrooms, with the master on a separate floor, and five bathrooms. For those whose interest has been piqued, the asking price is 10 million Swiss francs, or about $10 million.
