This is a home of rest in the middle of a small village in the Lower Engadine, eastern Switzerland. The main challenge in this house was designed to blend into the traditional architecture of the villa with a contemporary design requested by the client who owns a major art gallery. The aim was to develop a formal language that had a certain proximity to the traditional architecture of the villa in Engadine while recognizing a language away from conservative contemporary romance.
In urban terms, this home was carefully and volumetric dimensions and remained prevalent in the environment.
One problem is that the town has been consistently attacked by the fire, so many houses made of wood have disappeared and been replaced by others of stone, which currently dominate. The house is exposed concrete used to generate a similarity to the stone. However, in the indoor wood was used as a coating material to give extra warmth.
The appearance of massive walls and heavy delivers a great similarity to the general aspect of the game and can also give a traditional look to the windows. Each of the windows respond to a criterion linked to the interior spaces, giving a cluttered appearance to the outside.
