Scandinavian Style House

This fourteenth century cottage is located in the heart of one of the most beautiful valleys in Switzerland, near the Austrian and Italian borders. It was modernized and restored in the typical Scandinavian style.
The first part of the house dates back to 1300. The structure was classic, with space reserved for animals on the ground floor, two living rooms upstairs with a tiny bedroom and a living room scarcely larger. Food, hay, animal feed and equipment used to be stored here. The house had never been remodeled and was not maintained. More than one meter of the ground had to be digged out as the smell was persistent when the central heating was installed... A large fireplace was added, and a staircase and even a lift to access the second floor.
