Our objective was to build a house that looked as if it had always been there. Since it was impossible to renovate and the height of the ceilings was too low, it had to be completely demolished and rebuilt from scratch. The new house should retain the gabled roof of the former building and be constructed to conform with Casa Clima A Nature sustainability standards. Due to the unique view, we planned 2 spacious terraces or balconies at the front of the house. We wanted to create a unique chalet which merged extremely well into the environment. We don't want our architecture to stand out: we would prefer to let our presence remain unnoticed by incorporating and further developing the elements of Ladin architecture, in harmony with the local environment.
Since we are building a Casa Clima A Nature, all materials have been carefully selected and used. The simple but clear aesthetics expressed by the chalet are reflected down to the last detail of the interiors. Stone slabs were chosen to adorn the floors of all the rooms, with the exception of the bedroom and the living room, where we built the floors from 4-metre-long wooden planks. The large fixed windows in the bedrooms and living room lend the house a striking appearance which seems almost self-assured. Sloping walls and rounded edges are our signature features when evoking a homely character for houses like this.
