This 200-Year-Old House Contains A Very Unlikely Interior

Cottage on the streets, Bauhaus in the sheets.

At first glance, this 200-year-old residence in Linescio, Switzerland looks like a crumbling stone home for wild boar and vile little insects. Step inside and you’ll find that’s not at all the case. The firm Buchner Bründler Architekten completely revamped this cottage so that it’s minimalist, hyper-modern, not at all bug-infested. Sitting on a terraced hillside in Italian-speaking Switzerland, this remote summer cottage doesn’t force you to forgo the sleek comforts of the city. And you know what they say about people in stone houses: They can throw whatever the hell they want.
