It is not necessary that you do not have fantastic water views unless your home is near an ocean. It could be on the shore of a lake like this house on the shore of Lake Walen in Switzerland. The Walensee house was designed by K_M Architektur and not only offers a view of the lake, but also of the beautiful mountains nearby. The house is surrounded by nature and consists mainly of wood, which blends in very well with the surroundings. Only large glazing and simple shapes show that it is a piece of contemporary architecture. The interior is also quite minimalist to emphasize the view of nature instead of furniture objects.
