Wooden house in South Tyrol. The gable roof resembles the traditional barns of the area - TimberOnWeb
In Marebbe, an Italian municipality in the province of Bolzano, Ellecosta Daniel Architect designed Ciasa Le Fiun, a gable roof building that stands alone on the south side of a high plateau with a view of the Sassopiatto, with the ridge parallel to the slope
The distinctive feature of the building is that it connects a commercial building with a service flat integrated into the surrounding building culture of the hamlets. The commercial building is almost completely underground and integrated into the hillside
The solid basement is contrasted by a wooden structure, reminiscent of traditional agricultural gabled buildings and the vertical wooden supports make the building look rooted. The exterior cladding is made of dark wood, while the interior is made of light fir and rough plaster
The house is built from local materials and is a mirror of the residents and their surroundings. Spruce is used both for the cladding, such as windows, doors and furniture and for the structural elements. The steep roof, the characteristic dark wood exterior and the light, rough plaster serve as a reference point for the typical rural landscape.
