The Power of Glass…
Who knew such a house like this one exists? Paschal Flammer, the genius architect behind this one-of-a-kind perfect cabin, thought of a way to connect the indoors with the out, unlike any you’ve seen before. Located in Balsthal, Switzerland, this two-story retreat is surrounded by the wonderful view of Mother Nature. For anyone who’s considering having a 2nd home to get out of dodge, this is definitely one to inspire you! Check out these amazing photos, and tell us what you think on our Facebook page!
This timber house is about different ways of perceiving the landscape surrounding it. There are two principal floors; one set 750mm below the earth, one 1500mm above. The ground floor consists of one single family room with a noticeably low horizontal ceiling. In this space there is a physical connection with the nature outside the continuous windows. Large windows open to composed views of the wheat field. Whereas the ground floor is about connecting with the visceral nature of the context, the floor above is about observing nature.
