Architect Alfredo Vanotti sourced the home's stone exterior from the woods behind the property. “I believe that mountain architecture is an emblematic example of sustainable architecture,” he says.
Artisan Vanotti Mauro built many parts of the building, including its most prominent feature: the larch wood accents. The stairs are made of iron, which was coated with white paint from San Marco.
Reinforced concrete stands behind the stone facade to provide insulation. “The house refers to rural houses: a sloping roof, completely coated by stone and with no eaves,” Vanotti says.
As per the owner's request, the second floor’s open landing receives ample sunlight.
