This unique, three-story residence for a four-member family is located in Zurich, and is designed by AFGH-architects. Bold choice of materials, love the mix and all the light.


  1. what a wonderful space - the raw materials, the volume.. and i also like how each area is separate and distinct, but there is still an overall connection between the spaces..

  2. While I loved some of his houses a few years ago, with time I am realising that they are very little flexible to changing tastes, interiors etc. Once you are tired of looking at bare concrete, you are stuck with it forever. What I find - however - most disputable about his architecture is the radicality and no adaptability what-so-ever to the surroundings that these buildings are placed in (good e.g. http://www.afgh.ch/index241.htm ). Building such weekend-lodge-monsters into classical villages, one understands why the referendum last year passed that is limiting second- or village-residences in Switzerland to a minimum. In this regard, the architect could really learn a lot from his scandinavian colleagues who are able to craft uniqueness but adapt it skillfully to settings, nature etc. ;-))

    1. Thanks for your comment! Monster-buldings are useless to both the environment and the people who are going to live in them. In Norway I´m glad to say we have a lot of strict rules when it comes to building new houses, (though some people seem to get around it and builds huge cabins in the mountains).

  3. That i taken aback when using the exploration everyone intended to get this to selected present astounding. Terrific process!


  4. These homes are factory-made and smaller in size, which is why they aren’t as highly priced as other homes. They can either be on land you own or on land that you rent from a manufactured home park.
