Occupying a small hilltop in the Swiss Alps, Sarreyer Cabin is a modern mountain chalet hidden inside a rustic shell. Rough-cut logs and a rusty stove pipe give the impression of a century-old structure settled into the mountainous landscape. Upon entry, a contemporary haven reveals itself. An open living area sits on the main floor, while an additional level is tucked below inside the stone foundation. From floor to ceiling, smooth timber planks line the entire interior, creating a warm, contemporary palette. The only other material is the large glazed panels that frame in views of the surrounding scenery.
