Words from the architect

The client wanted a wooden and stone house with spa and indoor swimming pool, spaces for hosting friends, and large garages for cars and snowmobiles. He also wanted a house which in the future, could be divided into two independent houses

The house is made of two blocks, rotated around the central staircase/lift system, in this way the house can easily be divided in two independent apartments. The two blocks have a open face to the south, looking out on to a beautiful landscape. The north facade has no windows. The house is a "stone bow" containing a "wooden core" with two massive single-eaves roofs for shading the windows in the summer.

As the client wanted, the materials used are rustic stone for the base and larch wood for the top. Roofing is made with zinc sheets. Walls are thick (70 cm) for optimum thermal insulation. There is a geothermal system for heating the house along with natural ventilation systems.

In the basement, there are fitness and spa spaces, the "taverna", the swimming pool and auxiliary services. The ground floor houses two garages and storage spaces, a middle level houses bedrooms and bathrooms. The upper level that looks down onto the landscape, houses the kitchen and a living room with loggia.
