axis mundi, led by John Beckmann, has just come up with a house concept that harnesses the use of the three Cartesian coordinates: x, y, and z.

Rendered in the high alps of Wengen, Switzerland, the 4,000 sq-ft home is made from steel, concrete, glass, and most importantly, corten steel. Access to the cantilevered mass can be found in the main entry tunnel/bridge, or the vertical circulation’s staircase and elevator. The main living quarter is suspended in mid-air over the breathtaking views of the valley, and is a dwelling that is “meaningfully stripped of all nostalgia from the material world.”

Beckmann describes the project as “a ruin from the future and its poetic power lies in its supreme muteness, as a place to contemplate the horizon and eternity in silence.”

Those interested in learning more about this architectural project can head over to axis mundi’s website.
