swiss firm savioz fabrizzi architectes has renovated the ‘maison boisset’ to update an old wooden house from its original agricultural use, and take more advantage of the surrounding landscape to create a contemporary comfortable holiday home. the exterior was left virtually untouched, save the renovation of the original parts for safety and the creation on new openings for improved solar gain during the freezing winter months.

 

a stone foundation spanning the height of one floor supports the wooden construction above. organized in three levels, the entry is kept on the middle floor where the owners are greeted by the kitchen and living room. partly below ground on the steep hillside is the children’s bedroom and bathroom, half-way embedded into the earth, with a window made in the original cattle door. the upper storey contains the master bedroom with arguably the best views over the valley. the rugged aged exterior is contrasted drastically by the new interior, clad entirely with larch panels with special attention to craftsmanship that creates a stunningly clean and inviting atmosphere.

  • Nice job !! one of my favorite houses of the year.
    Only one comment… I would have chosen another material for the interiors, I think it looks kind of fake… like veneer wood.
    I don’t know, maybe is a matter of taste but I’m missing some knots.
    Congratulations !!
