Standing resilutely like a fortress over the city and lake of Locarno, Switzerland, this stunning home incorporates the best of both worlds: traditional stone masonry enforced with the clean contemporary lines of concrete. The house feels both comfortable and protective, evoking a sense that one could get from an old castle. It emits a sense of quality and understated elegance that is uncommon in most modern houses. The architectural firm of Wespi De Meuron has shown remarkable self constraint. Nothing in this house is overdone. Both less and more.
