This is a house I could live in, no doubt. Built on a site at an elevation of 2800 metres, the architects approached the project in an interesting way. Rather than designing the building so that it does not have an impact on the landscape, which is a normal approach, they did quite the opposite by rehabilitating and reforesting the site.
The design is long and following the longitudinal crest of the mountains in the distance, and from the inside this is further emphasized by orienting the public rooms, bedrooms and a study westwards, capturing the dramatic views in the horizon.
Dark wooden panels are to be found everywhere in the interior, and a long stone wall running straight through the middle of the house brings some of the outside in and stands in clear contrast to the smooth wooden interior.
