This project regards the complete renovation of a detached villa of 4,305 square feet and an extension of 1,722 square feet. The existing building is completely redesigned with the installation of wooden facades with timbered shading systems. The new building (1,7222 square feet), originally designed to be constructed with a wooden panel technology (X-lam), has been built with precast concrete panels covered in wood.
The project is built at the far end of the settlement, at the edge of a spruce pines and larches forest. The layout of expansion has been the result of the relationship between the forest and the available land. The new building is an insert to the existing volume and is detached from it both physically and in an expressive way.
A unique volume that concentrates the extension in a simple design and plays with the existing building both in explicitly modern shapes and materials of brushed and heat-treated larch, split stone for the base, and titanium zinc for the roof.
