This exemplary Engadine farmhouse in the Swiss village of Florins was revamped and changed over by Philipp Baumhauer Architekten with deference for the current. It comprised of a private area confronting the town focus and a rural segment far from the street.
The building was totally renovated and extra living space was included. By first uprooting the floor of the back animal dwellingplace segment of the house, a three-level, basically free wood structure, was then embedded inside of the current stone casing, separating itself on the outside exterior as an extensive wooden volume. The outline permits the verifiable substantial volume of the stable to stay decipherable notwithstanding the progressions. The two-story family room reaches out up to the top of the embedded structure, whose internal surfaces are clad with larch wood. Four extra rooms that were likewise assembled inside of the old stable constitute a two-level sculptural move to the previous living quarters.
Perspectives are open through the whole house along its longitudinal hub, and a substantial sliding glass way to the overhang extends the perspective to the mountains of the Engadine. The run of the mill nearby theme of profound window uncovers in thick outside dividers has been received and overstated, connoting the changes inside. With their sharp-edged enumerating, these couple of vast window openings emerge as opposed to the current building design.
Referencing recorded horse shelters in the region, harsh sawn, untreated larch sheets were decided for the exterior. The continuous maturing procedure of the wood helps the venture to fit inside of the assembled fabric of its environment.
