When it comes to minimalism, this hotel takes the cake: It has no walls, no roof and no bathroom either (don't worry: there's one 10 miles down the road). But what The Null Stern Hotel does offer is a prime location 6,463 feet above sea level in the mountains of Graubünden in Switzerland.
The double bed hideout was designed by Swiss conceptual artists Frank and Patrik Riklin for the Art Safiental land art festival, but has since been turned into a $250-per-night experience — weather permitting, of course. And even though it doesn't come with some of your standard hotel amenities (cough, a toilet, cough) it makes up for it with a butler service, welcome drink and breakfast basket.
There is something very special about staying at a mountain lodge, pasture hut or historic farmhouse with family or friends. It is a special place to make lasting memories and enjoy the peaceful natural setting of the mountains. It’s the place where everyone starts to notice all the magic that is outdoors and reconnects to the things that count.
Snuggling up in front of the fireplace. Exploring the great outdoors. Spending quality time together, laughing and having fun.

Margot Krasojevic's latest proposal, a mesh shelter that takes the concept of snow caves and applies it to an artificial structure, is built for an eminently practical purpose: a built emergency shelter for climbers and others caught in extreme conditions.
The elaborate, high tech and naturally contoured structure is as much a thought experiment as it is a serious architectural proposal, with the carbon fibre mesh acting as a snow-catcher, forming a frame for a large snow drift. The captured snow works as both building material and insulation, allowing for the creation of a shelter of several rooms. Inside sits a wooden frame suspended from the mesh and attached to the landscape by climbing ropes, which avoid freezing by swaying. This frame can have canvases attached to it, and contains cell-like modules that would act as sleeping areas...
Switzerland's striking natural landscape offers many picture-perfect views – but Gautschi Lenzin Schenker Architekten's 'House in Rombach' was designed to make particular use of its bucolic setting. Located in a suburb at the edge of Aarau, the capital of Aargau canton, the area's green vistas took centre stage in the design process. Subsequently, the team focussed on creating a generous top floor, from which the owners and their guests can take in the area's picturesque scenery...

Trend in Switzerland for recycling decommissioned army bunkers into hotels, businesses, museums and homes
During World War Two, Switzerland had a network of around 8,000 bunkers and military shelters. Faced with high maintenance costs and a cooling threat of invasion, the Swiss army handed a property firm the task of trimming that number down in the mid-1990s.
The vast majority have now been bought, sealed off, or set aside for historical preservation and are dotted around Switzerland, often still disguised as barns, houses and medieval castles.
