Woodhouse in Caviano

Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects como Arquitectos

The house is located in an area of new buildings outside the historical center of caviano. It has a wonderful view on the lake and the mountains. With its silver-dark-gray colour and pure shape the house takes itself inconspicuously back and connects with natural stonewalls of the surroundings rather than with the heterogeneous buildings. A hillside volume extension embodies the house with the mountain and enables a direct acces to the upper house level.


The irregular window setting is melting the floors to a unit without recognizable partitioning.


Large space-strutted panorama openings alternate with small square ventilation windows.


To achieve an optimization of costs, it has been chosen a prefabricated timber construction, a compact volume, simple details and low cost materials.


At the inside the prefabrication is recognizable - the raw wood elements remains visible and are painted with the same silver-dark-gray colour as it was used for the timber facades.
