pedevilla architects has designed this monolithic family residence ‘haus in mülbach’ in bolzano, italy. set on the foothills of the alpine slopes and next to a flowing river, the angularity of the roof mirrors the form of the neighboring mountains where the white-cement exterior contrasts against the forest greens of the surroundings. the building strikes a balance between being a distinctive, contemporary structure but at the same time, harmonizes with the environment. using natural, locally-sourced high quality materials, the interior has been delicately constructed using elm wood, a chalked-based plaster and subtle bronze detailing in the decor- all of which showing skilled methods of assembly. simple in design, the timber floors match the frames of the carefully arranged windows, giving a sense of warmth throughout. meanwhile each window punctures the structure at different heights and sizes, all of which look out onto a spectacular view of the mountain peaks and overlapping forest scenery.
