Brione House

Modern Swiss Stone House by Wespi de Meuron

The view from the roof of this modern stone house by Swiss architect Wespi de Meuron is exactly what I experienced on my visit to Switzerland last summer — a chalky-blue lake and small city nestled into a valley in the Alps. Designed to be unobtrusively present in the side of a mountain, the boxy exterior of this stone home blends into the landscape, but has some really cool interior and architectural details...

How often would a rooftop pool be used in the Swiss Alps? There are additional photos and various elevation drawings at Arch Daily.
