Rising dramatically from a hillside in Switzerland, this monolithic concrete home was designed by the German firm(AFGH) of Andreas Fuhrimann and Gabrielle Hächler. The home serves as the vacation residence of an art gallery owner, and its austere concrete construction creates a gallery-like atmosphere in the home’s interior. The use of concrete transitions seamlessly from exterior to interior, where floors, ceilings, and walls are all formed by the material. Niches, benches, and shelving were incorporated into the concrete formwork to create integrated custom elements. In keeping with the gallery theme, furnishings are sparse and sculptural. The interior also features unfinished plywood accents to offset the use of concrete. The overall form is a slightly skewed cube, with interior volumes extruded from the façade. The architects chose concrete as a modern interpretation of the traditional architectural vernacular surrounding the home, which consists primarily of historic stone homes. Fuhrimann and Hächler tout their design as a modern reflection of the past.

A MAN will appear before magistrates today after a Rolls Royce crashed into a Hampshire supermarket.

Six women suffered cuts, bruising and shock when the vehicle went through the window of the Tesco store in River Way, Andover, at about 4.30pm on Wednesday.

Shoppers ran for cover as the car smashed into shelves and tills and then tried to reverse out but got stuck, but nobody was seriously injured.

Unemployed Robert Malcolm Caton, 50, of Cusden Drive in Andover, will appear at Basingstoke Magistrates’ Court on charges of criminal damage, recklessly endangering life, dangerous driving and failing to provide a specimen for analysis.
