Text description provided by the architects. Aim of the project: Not far away from the town centre of Fontanella – an old village of Walserpeople – the house is situated on a inclined south-terrace-plane. Not just to benefit from the great view but also to optimise the property ́s borders, the building is placed on the upper part of the property and the volume is kept as compact as possible. The whole fassade of the building is a made of differently size sliced spruce- boards, exactly how they are delivered from the sawmill.

The intentional rough planking together with the randomness of smaller and bigger windows generate an exciting fassade game and an intimate atmosphere inside with selected framed views to the exterior. The basement is made of concrete, the rest of the house is a whole wood- construction. The interior work of the ground floor is also a silver-fir-wood- construction, the one in the upper floor is drywall.
