Newhouse in Ranzo

Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects as Architects

The project works with references to the historical architectural culture of the place and interprets them anew. Thetraditionalnaturalgreyplaster of the façade associatedwith thesimple cubeof themodernhouse detracts themselvefrom aprecisetemporalassignment. This house is closely linked to the historical paths from the lake to the village. The terrace with a mountainside courtyard wall, a long bench and natural stone paving has Mediterranean character. The pergola place on the old barn is directly connected with a steep staircase to the house and forms a counterpoint to the new building.
