From the architect. Situated away from the village, this house included an adjacent barn and had a too vast volume to be renewed in its totally. Only elements which can easily be reused were preserved, cellars and floors of the pre-existent house. The rest was demolished.

Volumes of visible tinted concrete replaced the double-sided roof and the transformed area. the big openings so created allow the light to penetrate more generously. The geometry of the superstructures results both from a formal desire and from a will to remove the wall thickness. The various-slopes faces enhance the highly varied game of the shadows throughout the day. The are no corridors.

Circulation is made along the external wall, from room to room. The overall view continues beyond the windows, opening onto the surrounding landscape.

Great design, love the textures in elevations and the simplicity in the drawings. Fresh mountain air.

Living without corridors is great: http://tinyurl.com/2uuk8kd

the mix on the elevations....of the contemporary upper floor with the traditonal stone work of the lower floors has worked very well...surely an example of how contemporary architeture can still retain a traditional flavour...this is good work..

I like the exterior disign of upper floors, it recalls the Czech Cubism))

Holcim Awards · December 15, 2010

This is a wonderful, simple, and elegant reuse of an existing structure. I love the simple materials and natural lit interiors. Fantastic design.
