Montebar Villa

Designed by Italian JM Architecture studio, the Montebar Villa is a minimalist residence located in Medeglia, Switzerland. The prefabricated wood house lies on a slope that faces the Swiss alps, with the main entertainment areas opening up to the beautiful view. The huge top-to-bottom front glass facade lets in plenty of light during all four seasons, and offers dramatic views of the tranquil surroundings.
