BREAKING NEWS: This Retreat Is Available For Rent!!!
Winter is finally here, bringing about cravings for a fun escape with friends to the snow-covered mountains. A little cabin designed by UBER-FAMOUS renown and award-winning Architect Peter Zumthor, here you can sip coffee while enjoying the view of snowflakes falling on pine trees. I got my bags packed already! Have you? 😉
Care to stay in the home of internationally renowned Swiss architect (and Pritzker Prize winner) Peter Zumthor? Architectural enthusiasts are in luck: A few years ago, Zumthor started renting out Unterhus, one of two vacation cabins he built on a mountainside in the tiny Swiss hamlet of Leis. Zumthor’s cabins are sited on a snowy incline. There’s great skiing and hiking directly from the doorsteps. The walls are constructed of tongue-and-groove pine boards. The wood detailing extends to the bathroom, which even has a wooden sink. Another small window with a sliding shutter can be seen on the far wall. The village of Leis has just 20 inhabitants, and, at 5,125 feet above sea level, it is the highest hamlet in the Vals area that’s inhabited year round.
