Near Lake Joux in Switzerland, the construction company of Ralph Germann designed this lake residence that’s coated in a darkish, anthracite metallic masking to protect it from the chilly native climate. The ends of the house are set once more and coated in larch picket giving it a homey actually really feel. The house home windows are prolonged and slender which let the homeowners take in panoramic views of the lake, moreover giving the surface of the house some further architectural particulars.
The within is every fashionable and cozy, with larch picket masking one wall made of cabinets. I really like how the furnishings aren’t outsized, nevertheless scaled for the size of the room.
The house is minimize up into two ranges that are associated by two purple lacquered staircases. The upstairs is cut up, one facet is the primary bed room and the other is for pals, each reached by a separate set of stairs – good for privateness.
