July 21, 2010 Comments Off on Cottage Style Houses – cool contemporary take on Swiss chalet



Check out this architecture firm’s modern take on a traditional Swiss chalet. Based in Switzerland and Los Angeles, tecARCHITECTURE conceived this cottage style house design that takes rustic-chic to a new level. Rather than settling for something expected, the homeowner commissioned tec, who played within the rules but manager to design something totally original and unforeseen. The cool, glass cottage design features a conventional roofline, but apart from its silhouette everything about it is contemporary. The minimalist facade boasts glass walls and open-air terraces that invite the outdoors in. Each room is naturally sun-soaked, and features a cool white palette with warm wood floors that add a sense of simple luxury. The view from the terraces is simple spectacular. tecARCHITECTURE
