Located within the gorgeousItalian Alps, this top-notch shelter has a few sustainable and notable characteristics. It stands on a foundation made fromdolomite rock found on site and was built from locally sourced solid Swiss stone pine and larch. Inside, the Alpine House is naturally lit, uncluttered and very spacious.

The knotty wooden planks were left uncovered and celebrated all around the house, on the floors, window frames, doors and even furniture. The house was hooked up with its own local water source and when the sun is not shining, the energy comes from the underground. All these eco-friendly decisions leave the owners with enough money to spend in what’s important: really good Italian wine.
