This part modern, part rustic home is the proof that a cabin-aspect dwelling can beautifully integrate that modern touch. Envisioned by architect Enrico Bellotti from BEAR Projects Studio, the villa is a renovation of an old dwelling according to the inhabitants' needs and the alpine area in which it's located.
This way, all the living spaces inside the house have been radically remodeled in order to satisfy the inhabitants' modern needs. The materials choice was carried out paying attention to the background of the house which is located in the heart of the Italian Alps.
The concept of the wooden mountain house was reinterpreted in a modern key in which white plastered walls create the positive contrast and enhance the typical shades of the natural wood.
The use of glass provide the attic rooms with a new type of light: the natural light. Furthermore, the glass parapets allow natural lights to reach all the indoor points.
Finally, using stone on the walls enhance the unique features of some spaces that were once underestimated. At the same time, it emphasizes the alpine environment and it brings the home closer to the nature that is highly visible through the large glass windows.
