Raw Meets Refined in Three Homes

Raw meets refined in a trending trio of homes marked by beguiling materiality.

Nuglar Residence by Lilitt Bollinger Studio and Buchner Bründler Architekten. Photography by Rory Gardiner/Photofoyer.

Firm: Lilitt Bollinger Studio and Buchner Bründler Architekten

Location: Nuglar, Switzerland

Recap: Enormous circular apertures and Brutalist concrete surfaces recall the lyrical modernism of Louis Kahn in this 1968 warehouse/distillery turned residence and workshop. The raw concrete pairs with sympathetic planes of sea pine and spruce: built-ins, doors, and furniture fabricated by a carpenter on site.

Liberec Residence by Mjölk Architekt. Photography by Akub Skokan and Martin Tu?ma/Boys Play Nice.

Firm: Mjölk Architekti

Location: Liberec, Czech Republic

Recap: At the property’s edge,
a concrete-panel wall buffers the din of traffic from the busy road to the Jizera Mountains. A pair of tar-painted larch structures behind are supported by century-old granite foundations belonging to the site’s former dwelling. One is a Nordic-industrial abode for a couple and their daughter; the other, a smaller guesthouse for the son, a sailor who spends most of the year helming transatlantic ships.

Sonoma Residence by Mork Ulnes Architects. Photography by Bruce Damonte.

Firm: Mork Ulnes Architects

Location: Sonoma, California

Recap: The Corten steel enveloping this wine-country retreat nods to regional rural buildings as well
as the red clay indigenous to the hillside site. But the base housing the carport and entry is concrete—as is the majestic stair ascending
to the great room, capped by three angled roof planes demarcating the kitchen, living area, and master suite.
