This Looks Like a Crumbling Shack, But Inside It’s an Amazing Home

The unexpectedly beautiful interior of this 200-year-old farmhouse will make your jaw drop.

On the outside, this rustic farmhouse looks like it’s about to cave in on itself. But once you step through the front door of this amazing house, you won’t believe what’s in front of you.

This rustic stone farmhouse is over 200 years old and is located in Linescio, Switzerland. The house was completely renovated on this inside but left almost exactly as it was originally on the outside. When the architecture firm Buchner Bründler Architekten decided to renovate the space, they went for a minimalist design filled with concrete walls and floors with stone and wood accents.

These tall wooden shutters showcase the original window framing and helps to bring in natural light that keeps the space feeling airy and big. The concrete panels that adorn the walls and floors were all carefully brought in piece by piece and are the main element used in the design.

This sunken tub surrounded by natural stone and wood plank beams make the room feel more like the inside of a cave in the forest than an indoor bathroom. The choice of a light concrete slab around the tub also keeps the area from feeling too dark.

The usage of these elements keeps the interior tied to its natural surroundings while staying modern and beautiful. The minimalism and natural accents keep the space feeling cozy without being too harsh or empty.

The choice to use pieces like the pot belly stove and sunken tub help to keep the space feeling rustic and historic without being dark or dingy. It also helps to keep the space from feeling too modern and out of place in its lush setting.
