Halbhaus is a 17th-century timber-frame Swiss chalet located in the historic Swiss mountain village of Andermatt. Halbhaus (‘half house’ in German) originally stood next to a house that was its mirror image, but was lost to a fire several decades ago. The heart of the house is a double-height kitchen and living area. Whitened wood paneling and flooring contrasts with the dark, custom-built kitchen and gray plastered walls. The chalet’s furnishings are a mix of new and old, and include several pieces, such as the dining table and chairs, passed down from the previous owner; the flooring is original throughout. Though a bit Spartan inside, the chalet is a great space for relaxation.
