Built as a single compact volume, ARCHI7’s single-family home has a very small footprint; it is designed to maximize its exposure to the sun. The home’s exteriors are clad with local Mélèze [5] and the interiors with low-cost recycled OSB [6]. Large windows and skylights fill the house with natural light, fresh breeze and stunning views out to the Swiss mountains.

Bold colors, translucent doors and plenty of hidden storage helps to create airy, clean and uncluttered interiors. The concrete flooring is very practical, as it’s durable, cheap and very efficient for keeping the heat inside the house. ARCHI7’s has managed to create a modern no-frills home in a brilliant simple way.
