SWISS ALPS: Walensee Haus


Nestled into the green hillsides of the Churfirsten mountain range is this wooden masterpiece of a house designed by kM Architektur.   Built to look like a giant modern sauna, the house is wrapped by mountains, greenery and the clear blue waters of the Walensee which rises more than 2 km above sea level.  The use of floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and glass railings allows you to soak up all of this pristine nature while either inside the open concept living space, or sipping gluhwein on one of the many verandahs.  No wonder this setting inspired Franz List's "Au lac de Wallenstadt" during his solo travels to the area in the 1800's.
