Text description provided by the architects. The project M, a residential building in the centre of Meran, is embedded in the quit area of Obermais. The concept of the design was it to play with transparent and solid surfaces what fallows fascinating insights and outlooks. The interior melts together with the outside space. The terrain flows through the building and finds his renewal in the pool- and meadow area. Because of a refined external design and the arrangement of the pool, lawn, garden and house the whole concept seems like a unity with seamless transition. The ground floor follows the slightly sloping ground like a staircase to get a large garden area. Because of engineering technology considerations the building is conceived as a compact volume with one underground and two upper floors. From the construction point of view the house is built as a concrete construction, furnished with upgraded insulation. The glass-facade, door and window elements are executed as 3 layered glazier.

La casa M si trova nel centro di merano, posta nella zona tranquilla di Obermais. L´idea del progetto era di giocare con facciate trasparenti e massive, per creare occhiate, panarama e prospettive. L´abitacolo si fonde con l´esterno. Il terreno scorre l`edificio e trova il suo allungamento nella area pool e prato. Per il suo design esterno raffinato, l´ogetto sembra come un´unità, composta da pascina, prato, giardino e casa. Il piano terra segue il terreno in pendenza a forma graduale, che fornisce una grande area di giardino. Per obiettivi di tecnologie energetiche l´edificio è progettato come volume compatto con un piano inerrato e due piani superiori. Dal punto di vista costrutivo la casa é realizzata in cemento armato con un´isolamento tecnico completo. La facciata di vetro, le porte e finestre sono stati eseguiti in panelli in vetro doppio.
