In the Swiss village Vals you can now enjoy a combination of ‘Dutch Design’ and ‘Swiss Quality’. Villa Vals is a freestanding dwelling directly next to the famous Therme of Peter Zumthor. The luxurious villa is extremely quiet, offering breathtaking views of pristine nature.

Architect group SeARCH worked together with Christian Müller Architects and asked themselves: “Shouldn’t it be possible to conceal a house in an Alpine slope while still exploiting the wonderful views and allowing light to enter the building?”

The surrounding landscape is virtually untouched since the entrance is via an old Graubünder barn and an underground tunnel.

Snowpods

If you like skiing and want to sleep on a mountain, this resort is just for you. The Whitepod Resort is located Les Cerniers, Switzerland in the heart of the Alps. It features an authentic mountain lodge and traditional wooden chalet both with restaurants, 7 km of ski slopes with private ski lifts, and the pièce de résistance — Whitepod — a camp of 15 geodesic dome pods surrounding a central chalet. Each dome is essentially a tent stretched over a wooden structure and platform that allows accommodations out in the beautiful alpine wilderness.
