K M Architektur have designed this stunning family home in Switzerland; the location alone of this contemporary house in a small village called Unterterzen, with a magnificent view of lake Walensse and the mountains of Churfürsten is breathtaking. The property which is located on the slope of a green meadow offered the conditions to realize the floating design which captivates through its clear form and the use of natural and eco-friendly materials using concrete, glass and wood as structural material.
