In the Italian Alps, barns vary from region to region in their form, materials and structure. In the Cadore which is located in the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, alpine barns are built from wood and stone. The ground floors in such barns were typically used as stables and the upper floors as haylofts.

After the building had been dismounted, many wooden beams and boards were cleaned and restored whilst others were replaced with treated wood in order to maintain the chromatic continuity of the material before being remounted. From a volumetric perspective, some annexes that limited the original volume were removed and only essential ones were maintained and integrated in a discreet fashion.

A few steel beams are covered with wood. The building is totally energy self-sufficient thanks to a photovoltaic system integrated within the roof which is made of larch. It also generates zero emissions thanks to an electric under-floor heating system.

Every ambiance in the house is characterised by an accurate weaving of these five materials that creates a balanced and integrated system in each room.Project gallerySee allShow lessDutch Profiles Video: Rem KoolhaasArticles100 MAJA/ HOUSES: Participation of Estonia at La Biennale di VeneziaArticles Share Photographs Architects: EXiT architetti associati Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Selva di Cadore, Italy Houses “COPY”last_img
