The site is situated in a little village above Sterzing, at an altitude of 1400 metres above sea level. A new holiday residence for the Brunner family emerged from a farmhouse with an old stone oven, both of which had been fit for demolition. An ensemble was created on the mountain, incorporating the historical chapel.
It was important to integrate the home, a sauna, a garage and a henhouse into the landscape.
All the new buildings were inserted into the landscape without changing the topography. They were to be separate in terms of function, form and material, but still form a unity with regard to their positioning.
We worked with the found and the discovered, regarding the landscape as well as the remains of the old farmhouse, such as the stone walls and the traditional materials including the shingle from the chapel. The interior is characterised by simple materials, such the concrete ceiling that was roughly structured with laths, glass elements, steel and wood.
