Zumthor Vacation Homes

Leis is a hamlet of several old wooden chalets, a white chapel and a small restaurant, located in the mountains above Vals in Graubünden. Here, at 1,500 meters, the internationally renowned architect and Pritzker Prize winner Peter Zumthor built three wooden houses: the Oberhus, the Unterhus and the Türmlihus. The houses, which are slightly different in size, each extend over three floors. They are exquisitely furnished and feature high quality facilities: designer furniture and lamps, teak bathrooms, and kitchens fitted out with all appliances from a steamer to a raclette grill. The Türmlihus has a sauna.

Built of solid wood, the “Leiserhäuser” paint an intimate, homely picture and maintain a warm, cosy indoor climate. Through new construction techniques, Peter Zumthor has managed to incorporate large panoramic windows into their traditional log-style structure. The floor-to-ceiling windows extend from wall to wall and frame the landscape. Each room has spectacular views; especially impressive is the view from the living rooms on the top floor of the houses. They are fully glazed on two sides to create the experience of a closed observation deck. In winter, you can sit by the wood-fired oven and look out at the snow-covered slopes. In summer, you can enjoy a greener view on the sunny terrace or balcony.

  1. Holzbauarchitektur vom Feinsten, bis in das kleinste Detail. Die Häuser bieten viel Komfort ohne zu protzen und wunderbare Aussichten in die umgebende Berglandschaft. Geborgenheit auf hohem Niveau!
