Swiss architecture firm Nimmrichter CDA Architects are the creators of this atypical Switzerland timber home design on the outskirts of Zurich, Switzerland. And while this wood house may use traditional materials, its architecture is contemporary cool. A strong horizontal presence is anchored by the roofline and the pattern of the timber panels finishing the facade. The minimalist shape of the structure is adorned by nothing but clean-lined windows and doors. Interiors are too timber-clad, only with a sophisticated refined edge. Wood is used as the main element to finish floors, walls and the main staircase that leads up to the private upper level. Expansive balconies with sliding glass walls open to the outdoors.
