Villa Vals, Switzerland

ARCHITECTURE

Project: Villa Vals, Switzerland | Location: Vals, Graubünden, Switzerland |

ArchitectSeARCH and Christian Muller Architects | Building completion: 2009

I am in love with this amazing house built in the hills in Switzerland, called Villa Vals. It was designed by Christian Muller Architects. Their design plan was to completely integrate the villa into the landscape to avoid disturbing the unspoiled nature. Surprised that it was permissible to construct a pair of dwellings so close to the world famous Thermal Bath of Vals you can see in my earlier blog. The client seized the opportunity to develop the site, without disturbing the bath’s expansive views. A central, circular patio is lined with large window openings, which allow for a heavy supply of natural light and impressive views of the Alpine Vista, which sits across the narrow valley. If you are visiting Switzerland like I am planning to this year it can be your house for a day, two or a week, as you can stay here on your trip.
