In Zuoz, Switzerland, House T was designed by Men Duri Arquint as a home and private gallery for the owners of Galerie Tschudi, a popular art hub dually based in Zuoz and Glarus. The multifunctional building resembles a farmhouse from the outside, but the cursive neon sign suggests that there is more to it than that. Inside, one sees that indeed there is. Variously lined in concrete and wood, the interior is a thing to explore. In one room, the whole chamber is concrete except for the polished marble floors and staircase, and the architecture seems rather like that of a contemporary castle. In another, the walls are painted white, and the high ceilings are filled with light. The diversity of the home comes together well because each space serves a second purpose: displaying artwork. Both the concrete hallways and wood-lined common rooms are great backdrops for the clients’ extensive collection of art from around the world.
