Wedged into the earth is a magnificent stone build by Wespi De Meuron Romeo Architects. The ancient technique of laying one stone at a time from corner to corner has been used in a stunning new build flaunting modern characteristics. The result is a timeless structure solid in construction which will see many hundreds years of use yet. Bottom line, no one makes homes like they used to. How exhilarating to see this architect take on such a project.
These blocks of construction have been submerged into the hillside of Locarno, Switzerland to take advantage of the exquisite views of the mountains and the lake. Its design throughout is simple, peaceful, uninhibited. The fantastic flow is preserved by open doorways, channeling beams of sunlight through the cave like crevices. Just as tranquil is the grand entrance to the swimming pool leaving one speechless as it cascades into the horizon.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
