Holiday flat in the Alpine air of the Engadine
Architect: Architekturbüro Herbert Bruhin
Location: Celerina / Switzerland
Execution Year: 2005

To create this flat, two apartments on adjacent floors were combined to form an atmospheric whole. In place of the original small room, an open floor plan was devised that contained expansive interior views and outward-looking vistas. The heart and connecting element of the two floors is a wall element made of bush-hammered concrete with local gravel, which brings the essence of the mountain into the home. A fireplace, wardrobe and alcoves intended as practical storage space or for displaying various objects are integrated into the wall element.'
