A house within a house ; Casa C by Camponovo Baumgartner Architekten.
The barn consists of two units. Structurally, each of the units utilitzes the traditional layout of the barn, with a lower floor, formerly used to house animals, and an upper floor, formerly used as a hay loft. The main structure of the barn was kept. The structure of the middle wall was as well important to the concept. The new weekend house was conceived as a building inside the hay lofts. The inner facade is twice detaches from its outer shell. Thus, two non-heated alcoves are developed, one in each hay loft, exposing the original height and wood-structure of the space. One of them serves as an entrance space, the other is in front of the living room and can be used as a Loggia. (…) The construction consists entirely of wood. The floor is made of native larch, the walls and ceilings are made of a high quality birch inlay, which contrasts the dark old wood oft he „log house“ facade. The roof is newly covered with larch shingles. All the surfaces are untreated and exposed to natural deterioration.
