Swisshouse XXXII, designed by Davide Macullo Architects, as well as being an architecture capable of offering shelter from the weather is also a reminder of the desire for contemplation and building in respect of the places where it is located

The house is located in Val Calanca, among rocky walls, forests, soft undulating fields in a village in the Swiss Alps, at an altitude of almost 1100 meters. Swisshouse is located along the line of other existing volumes, which form an agglomeration around the village church

The vertical projection of the volume, the curving of the edges and the simple twisting of the roof make the volume dynamic and reinterpret the archetypal house. Just as the nature that surrounds us is not always the same but constantly changing, so too is the projected house changing and offering new interpretations depending on how we observe it

The space appears to be dynamic and offers an uninterrupted line of emotions. Each opening is designed and oriented according to the penetrations of light and the views of the selected landscape. The upper volume is entirely made of wood and rests on a basement entirely made of reinforced concrete
