This is the home and office of Swiss architect, Peter Zumthor.
His most famous design is the Therme Vals
spa in Switzerland, where the baths all appear around the corner or down some steps.
His works are subtle, elegant and loaded with integrity. He usually designs from the inside out, therefore the exteriors are unassuming and sometimes do not grab you (The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2011
is a good example). However, it is in the interiors that the details become prevalent and senses of the occupants are realised.
It was great to come by these images of his home and office as Zumthor tends to fly under the radar and has managed to keep his successful career and office in the Swiss town of Haldenstein.
Last week, I was kindly featured as a 'Designer Spotlight'
on Christine Martin's Somebody's Home
blog. I have happily asked people to participate in my Inspiration Profile, so it was interesting to have the tables turned on to me for a change. Read it here.
