Matteo Thun is a unique reference when it comes to giving a modern take to Italian design. This time he and his team had the chance to show how modern they can be in regards to their interiors, by tackling on a lovely home in Switzerland. CovetED will be giving you a little tour throughout this incredible home that blends in Swiss tradition with modern home decor elements and home technology.
At first, this may look like the typical classical home from Switzerland with all of the elements of alpine architecture there: pitched roofs, wooden constructions along with the beautiful timber detailing. The home that Matteo Thun handled, located on a hill not far from St. Gallen and nearby Lake Constance might seem like the typical classic design of this home, however, when one steps inside are when things start to change.
Immediately upon entering, one notices the ash wood surfaces, wrapped up in soft lines throughout the whole interior. This pattern can be seen and felt from walls and ceilings, being even able to transform into furniture and bespoke fittings. This minimalistic design is even supported by the best in modern home technologies. This includes heating, ventilation, air-condition, lighting and other important home appliances which are easily adjustable by the touch of a button through an app.
Other unique features of the modern home by Matteo Thun also include a swimming pool which occupies the external terrace, and a room, three levels below ground, that has the owner’s incredible car collection housed there. This secret area is accessible through an invisible car lift. Not to mention that with the technologies mentioned above you can turn the home into a private concert hall and listen to music in a unique way.
