Jura House Blends into the Surrounding Hill

Jura House Blends into the Surrounding Hill (1)

JDS Architects have designed Jura House in a small French commune on the Swiss border.

Description by JDS Architects: Situated in a secluded countryside, we wanted this house to embrace its landscape. From the inside, we maximized the living space while projecting the hill and mountain into the house. From the outside, the house blends into the surrounding hill minimizing its visual impact to a mere bump into the steep mountainside.
