    I dunno. Looks like a monastery with some prison touches.

    Talk about austere. The cross and chain decoration screams "issues."

    Ah, the warmth of concrete and plywood. So homey.

    Did you see the artwork with the broken cross surrounded by what looks like a thorn bush? Issues, indeed.

    i love this. i can't criticize the architecture, it's sublime. i would throw out the art though but only because it's not my taste. and the floor lamp in the dining room. i also really like the pillows in the bedroom.

    i love the house itself the interior i would totally change, minus the charlotte perriand table and chairs, the black and white painting in the other dining room and the coffee table in the last picture.

    I love this so much. Minus the hardwood room.

    I would paint it though.

    I don't get the love. There's no light, it's all concrete, and looks impractical. It feels like a bunker. Utterly soulless, devoid of any warmth.

    When I read "Home in the Alps" this is the last thing I expected to see.

    Same thing here.
    What's to love in this place apart from the location?
