Having a historic Swiss mountain farmhouse like The Gugalun House is a dream unto itself, but one renovated by Peter Zumthor brings it to an entirely transcendent level. The renovation took a few special steps to pay homage to the original structure and it’s craftsmen. Zumthor even kept the original foot path that has been travelled by farmers and residents alike for over a hundred years. These details help to contextualize the house both as a livable modern home, but also to honor all the history that exists within the walls and on the site.
