Bernardo Bader Architects has reinterpreted the traditional Alpine chalet using concrete and larch wood to create a home for an art and antique furniture collector on the edge of a village in the Appenzell region of the Swiss Alps.

The Austrian practice was commissioned to create the house on the site of a farmhouse that had been partially destroyed by a fire in 2011.
Called House on the Schopfacker after the name of the road leading into the Alpine village of Trogen, the rectangular-planned residence is raised on a large stone plinth and clad in pale Siberian larch wood.
