The Glorious Offspring of a Ski Lodge and a Giant Toboggan

There’s never a bad time to live in a ski lodge.

Snow underfoot and ski lifts humming along somewhere in the distance? Great. It’s gonna be a good day.

Morning alpenglow playing at the foliage while you lace up your hiking shoes? Also great. It’s gonna be a good day.

These are days visited upon often when you live in Switzerland’s recently finished Flexhouse. A large, modern single-family with a ribbon-like white facade winding about its exterior, the four-story Flexhouse from Evolution Design offers 180-degree views across Lake Zurich.

Due to its glass walls, white-ribbon layering and bright interior spaces, the home has a “light and mobile” appearance that “resembles a futuristic vessel that has sailed in from the lake and found itself a natural place to dock.”

After a couple bottles of Trois Dames, we can certainly see it.
