Concrete Cabin


From Beautiful Life:


"Nickish Sano Walder Architects sought to preserve elements of this Graubünden, Switzerland holiday home."


"From a distance Refugi Lieptgas looks like a traditional wooden hut. Taking a closer look, you will actually find that this cabin is made of concrete. The old barn that stood here previously characterises the appearance of the new building."


"By using the logs of the block construction as a formwork for the concrete a fossilized version of the old barn has been created. An unusual holiday home for two people – both romantic and modern."

Methinks the mass of concrete would make winter use difficult.
