Peter Zumthor built magnificent vacation homes in the most peculiar location. He decided to make these homes in the Swiss Alps. In this very snowy and cold climate, Zumthor’s houses stand out because of their light and bright volumes of timber that is used. He focuses on crisp vertices as well as seemingly perfect finger joints. Although they may seem like normal cabins, his attention to precise detail make these homes exceptional.
