B&B Villa Marguerita

KLAINGUTI + RAINALTER SA as Architects

The Villa Marguerita, which has undergone reconstructions in 2007, has been extended of three new B&B-rooms and a sauna. The single-story annex is integrated between Villa Marguerita and Chesa Bellaval. The three rooms are staggered in reverse order, so that every room gets a private seat with a view to the river Inn. Inside the building a rhythmic corridor occurs through the offset which separates the three rooms from the sauna area and the side rooms. Outwardly the parapet connects the three room volumes. On the top roof, which has exactly the same height as the existing terraces of the affiliated buildings, a garden will be added.

 

The new developed building out of the exposed concrete is stacked outside to fit to the front of the two existing buildings. The walls of the rooms are left in concrete flat and are separated to the corridor through an element of clapboard and a door out of larch. As well the windows, which allow an amazing view to the Engiadina meadows and woods, are out of larch. The ground floors in the rooms have been furnished with a mineral spackle.

 

The sauna area and the showers in the three rooms are glazed and supplied with fanlights. This way they shine like lanterns during day time, and during the night this effect is produced by artificial light. The perch with grill, which has been inserted between Villa Marguerita and the new building, is disposed out of a natural cobblestone, which continues to the new building and until the sauna area. Because of the natural cobblestone the inside merges perfectly to the outside and makes it possible to reach the Villa Marguerita through the new building in the Chesa Bellaval by dry foots.
