In its own way, the untreated finishes of House D by HHF Architects deliver a quiet elegance in its rawness against the landscape of Nuglar, Switzerland. The architects used what was readily available – glass, wood and concrete, designed minimally so that the real conversation within the living spaces is exchanged with the exterior.

It is the little subtle details of this project that I find really alluring. The oversized terrace helps maintain a level of privacy between the openness of the living spaces and the rest of the landscape; the door frames that follow the slope of the roof on the house give a different feel of the scale within the room; the run of the stair alongside a wall of concrete and a wall of glass that in its reflection further emphasizes the expanse of the views. Being minimal doesn’t mean lack of details here; it is an incredibly interesting project when one delves deeper.

  1. Feels a bit too cold and industrial, a bit of wood flooring would’ve gone a long way I think. I can appreciate the consistency of the design though.

  2. I really like this. I can appreciate what Alex is referring to, although there is actually wooden flooring in at least one of the rooms, but it is indeed a consistent and interesting design. Thanks, Adele.

  3. I can see myself living in this one. Gives me a warm feeling inside. I dislike the curtains though.
