marazzi reinhardt slots farmhouse intervention between traditional swiss buildings

 

inconspicuously slotted in-between two traditional buildings on a historical row development in the small village of north of switzerland, ‘haus zur blume’ is a baroque farmhouse realized as part of residential extension.

the timber intervention quietly but distinctively fills in the gap of a once empty void space. completed by swiss firm marazzi reinhardt, the scheme reunites the residence as two generous flats, flexible in their use and involves different spacial qualities. the façade was developed as a permeable shell made out of timber lamellas and encourages a natural light to enter into the spaces inside. despite the porous nature of the envelope, the intervention still takes a strong presence on the street.

the vertical construction features the arched cellar, the baroque-style living rooms and the rest of the neutral spaces of the extension and mazed gardens. overall, the atmospheric and structural qualities influenced by the old and new has fostered a peaceful ambience that finds richness in the geometry and in the lighting.
