In this Alpine context the building distinguishes itself for the simplicity and the candour of its construction volume, deprived of any superfluous element recalling a fake chalet. There are extremely dynamic and emotional conditions determined by the use of the coating/cladding materials and the realization of formal elements such as the big window which becomes an abstract painting overlooking the alpine landscape.
Inside, the house offers a domestic geography intimately linked to the site’s morphology. A black space with a small window is the cooking and eating area, the frameless big window is a conversation space while a low window allows for a continuous glimpse of the outside by also sculpting a small wooden alcove, an intimate treasure chest for the night.
Where once stood an old and abandoned rural structure there is now a small building, a residential unit part of the “albergo diffuso” project in the Paluzza municipality’s territory. This integrated project has been supported by EU funds with a mission to restore and re-use the abandoned buildings’ heritage with the aim of promoting a new kind of tourism. The ambition is to attract more tourism no longer with big accommodation structures but through small units widespread in the territory. Tourists therefore enjoy a diversified, alternative, economically approachable new kind of hospitality.
