The House of Switzerland is a mobile pavillion, representing Switzerland abroad. It was originally built for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Russia. The house is manufactured industrially from prefabricated wooden elements with a re-usable, flexible structure. The interior technology of the building is installed in a “plug + play” way to ensure a short assembly phase. “Swissness” is expressed in an appropriate and contemporary way.
