Annalisa Zumthor House
The small idyllic Swiss village of Leis is expanding in the form of two new houses, designed by Swiss architect Peter Zumthor of thermal bath fame. The lower of the two is called the Annalisa Zumthor House in honor of Zumthorís wife for whom the house was built. The other is a rental. Both houses are constructed in the Strickbau technique of solid laced-beam construction, a method that Zumthor seems increasingly keen on recently.
