The 3,800 sq. foot home, which was pre-built with Concept 4012 a Swiss company, has the family in mind with rooms that flow together while at the same time are defined unto themselves.
Exterior of the Home – Balz Arrigoni being from Switzerland chose a Swiss chalet-style with a sharply angled roof that easily sheds snow in the winter. The walls are super insulated and the overhanging eaves keep the home cool in the summer and warmer in the winter. The reclaimed wood siding, which is naturally maintenance-free, is from Arrigoni Woods.
Dining Area – Large sliding doors let the sunlight in and open from ceiling to floor to expand the living space to the outdoors. Chrome Mangnum Sticktex chairs around a utilitarian walnut table by Austrian manufacturer Team 7. Lighting from WAC Lighting. Bavarian Oak floors by Arrigoni Woods.
Living Area – Reclaimed, hand-chiseled spruce beams from Austria mix with modern comfortable furnishings in the living area, where bright accents of color warm a palette of cool neutrals. The orange and yellow draperies were custom made in Switzerland, and the fabric is just sheer enough to allow sunlight to flood the room while providing privacy when needed. The white sofa is Flex-form and the rug is natural sheepskin.
