The Alpine Residence by Bernardo Bader Architects is located on the edge of a village in the Appenzell region in Switzerland. At first glance, one could infer the nature of the project -- the boxed three storey home is build in a remote area and its fundamental purpose is to serve as a home to the owner's art collection.

Bernardo Balder Architects created a stunningly minimalist interior that successfully exhibits the rare paintings and sculptures, as well as the antique furniture. The pieces stand out in the wooden and cement rooms of the Alpine residence. The choice of materials is in direct correlation with the region's architectural history -- dating back to the 16th century, the village was known for its homey "square timber-framed houses and historic stone palaces."
