Lukas Lenherr's Jonschwil house project boasts a simplistic, space-saving design. The residence was built inside a traditional coach house and features three twisted and stacked rooms that draw inspiration from Japanese architectural layouts.
The home's uniquely stacked design "opens up a spiral-shaped vertical living space through all three floors," with its overall size measuring just 99 square meters. Its small footprint meant lower construction costs, as the Lukas Lenherr team opted for natural materials like locally sourced larch timber -- known for its waterproof and tough qualities.
This home also features wood fiber insulation and warm wood interior finishes. "The building materials were untreated, screwed open and largely uncut" and can be "dismantled and reused," adding to the project's sustainability factor.
