the presenhuber house designed by the swiss firm AFGH is a contemporary residence for an art gallery owner in the traditional village of vnà, switzerland. the holiday home’s design aims to blend into the vernacular architecture while clearly defining itself as a contemporary structure. the home is made from a concrete structure that mimics the nearby stone houses. inside, the rooms are lined with wood to create a warm atmosphere. the windows have been placed according to the interior configuration giving the outside facades an informal appearance, a kin to the neighbouring architecture. the façade also features a wood entry way that is perforated to allow light to enter. the interior features a living area and sleeping areas as well as an open space for the display of artworks.
