House of Splendid Surprises

The South Tyrol, Italy home of architect Armin Blasbichler is full of splendid surprises – including a door made out of color swatches!

Sian Meades explains:
Across South Tyrol in northern Italy, log stacks (or “musls,” as they’re known locally) sit in fields across the lush landscape. Ever since architect Armin Blasbichler was a child, he had the idea to build a house that looked just like the log stacks and let the home blend into the scenery that he had grown up with. The result is der Muslhaufen, which sits in Lüsen, not far from the Dolomites.

Check it out – there are doors on the ceiling.

And doors within doors…

Here is the aforementioned door made up of color swatches.

    Unique and beautiful.
    Having lived in Italy and hiked its mountains, I can see how this hose would fit into the landscape. I love the door the most.
