This raw and weighty house is located in a small rural village south of Zurich, backing onto a narrow river. The house’s blunt form was designed to shed snow and let in lots of natural light. The house is finished with blackened zinc, exposed fair-faced concrete and untreated larch wood. The walls and roof were completely prefabricated, erected in one week. The larch cross-laminated timber panels will be mostly exposed at the interior, creating a warm and familiar interior.
