Haus Eins

In Seelisberg just above Lake Lucerne, Switzerland, the carpenter Lukas Gwerer has made his vision of a natural house a reality. The house he has built over six years of work consists of 99% natural materials. The foundation made of natural stones supports a metal and glue-free construction made of moon phase harvested wood. The walls, insulated with a hemp-lime layer and hemp mats, are plastered with clay and covered on the outside with shingles made of red cedar. A cantilevered roof made of natural slate protects the facade from the elements.

What to do

A swimming pond, hot tub, sauna, hiking, skiing, paragliding, excursions in the surrounding area (Lucerne, Lake Lucerne)

Why we like this house

A pilot project that combines craftsmanship and a consistent ecological orientation. Here you can live in a pure natural environment surrounded by the Swiss mountain world.

This house is great for

Everyone who values sustainability. Nice for families too: children will love the swing seats on the kitchen island, the cave under the reading platform, and the lounge area in the attic.
