VitraHaus by Herzog & de Meuron. the theme of the archetypal house and the theme of stacked volumes. In Weil am Rhein, it was especially appropriate to return to the idea of the ur-house, since the primary purpose of the five-storey building is to present furnishings and objects for the home. Stacked into a total of five stories and breathtakingly cantilevered up to 49 feet in some places, the twelve houses, whose floor slabs intersect the underlying gables.
an awesome house in the swiss alps. it was built into the mountainside and is right next to the therme vals (hot springs). there's also a free ski shuttle that takes you to the slopes. available for rent: www.villavals.ch/
