MFH Dali Rain may share a name with the famous surrealist, but the building in the city of Rain, Switzerland, looks more like something out of an MC Escher drawing. The concrete apartment complex's southern facade features dramatically cantilevered balconies that are crosshatched one on top of another, giving the building the appearance of stretching out and grasping for more space.
The general design aesthetic of MFH Dali Rain is Brutalist, with the squat frame being composed of thick columns of concrete interspersed with large windows. The Brutalist style is even more apparent on the inside of the apartment, as the public spaces are starkly plain, consisting of little more than concrete. Nonetheless, the apartment building's intertwined balconies give it character that sets it apart from the other structures that adhere to Brutalism.
