Wood House in Caviano

The house is located in an area of new buildings outside the historical center of Caviano, with a wonderful view on the lake and the mountains.With its silver-dark-gray color and pure shape the house takes itself inconspicuously back and connects with natural stonewalls of the surroundings rather than with the heterogeneous buildings.

A hillside volume extension embodies the house with the mountain and enables a direct access to the upper house level.The irregular window setting is melting the floors to a unit without recognizable partitioning.Large space-strutted panorama openings alternate with small square ventilation windows.

To achieve an optimization of costs, it has been chosen a prefabricated timber construction, a compact volume, simple details and low cost materials.At the inside the prefabrication is recognizable – the raw wood elements remains visible and are painted with the same silver-dark-gray colour as it was used for the timber facades.
