Pritzker Prize winners Herzog & de Meuron consistently design austere architecture, residential buildings included. We love the concrete Rudin House... The Rudin House is a heavy concrete mass but is set up on stilts. The interior is as quiet as the smooth grey exterior, but it's warmed up by the floor and furnishings. We love the contrast of the wood Hans Wegner chairs and cushy sofa to the cool, cavernous concrete interior.
