They Built A Home In A Hill. One Step Inside, And My Jaw Instantly Dropped


Villa Vals is one of the newest architecture ventures from Christian Miller Architects and SeARCH. Located inside a slope in Vals, Switzerland, the goal of the project was to design a house that was almost entirely hidden.

By creating an extended patio built directly within a hill, this house provides an excellent view of the Alpine Slopes. Utilizing a large number of strategically placed windows, the architecture is designed to receive a large amount of natural light despite the odd positioning of the building.

A set of stone steps lead up to the extended patio of the house. The front of the house is entirely round, adding to the incredibly unique nature of the architecture. This patio is particularly amazing to look at and should give homeowners plenty of backyard patio ideas to work with – we can’t all live with a view of the stunning Alpine Slopes but we can at least have stunning patios constructed in our outdoor spaces.

It’s definitely one of the best features in a home, right? Having a gorgeous patio that enables you to entertain and to fill it with some of the nicest furniture that you can find will bring joy to almost every homeowner. Of course, you may need to get in touch with somewhere like this mudjacking Colorado company (if you live in that area) to create the foundation for your patio before proceeding further with the rest of your garden design. However, I’m sure it’s the dream of many people to have a patio like this in the Alpine Slopes, right?

How amazing do those paving slabs look by the way? You can just tell that a lot of skill and effort went into designing and installing that gorgeous patio area too. Needless to say, a team of paving experts such as LW Landscapes would definitely have been involved in an ambitious home project like this one.

The circular entrance creates a perfect window into the Alpine Slopes. The slight incline of the house allows it to be perfectly angled for the perfect view at all times, even during the heavy winter snow. 6
