Could you tell us something about this project?

Wood carving to shape an object is the main theme of this project. In fact, the new construction takes on the ancient tradition of woodworking typical of the Val Gardena. The folds, the carvings, the incisions, the openings and the colour variations of the façade generate different facets and a sense of movement, making it appear like a large wooden sculpture.

The shingle covering is supported by a construction system based on self-supporting triangulations in which the gutter for rainwater collection is integrated. This structure can be read both outside and inside, giving back to the environment its dynamic and changeable character.
