Weekender by Wespi de Meuron

Czech architects Markus Wespi and Jerome de Meuron have completed a stunning low-cost weekender in the Swiss alps.  Situated on an impossibly steep block, the home was built from plywood, then painted a steely grey to blend in with the surrounding stone buildings.

Oversized, floor-to-ceiling windows bring the outside in, while the somber interiors being that certain sense of comfort and solitude – the key ingredient to a relaxing weekend.
