a contemporary cabin on Ligurian Alps
project: Fabio Revetria, Lara Sappa
Project overview: the little wooden building was designed starting from the detailed study of rural constructions formerly used as barns or foliage sheds next to chestnut groves. The proportions, the structural system and the construction details have been redesigned into a small building annexed to the main house, maintaining a strong link with the area rural architecture and thus a coherent landscaping. The building is located at 1,000 m.a.s.l. in the heart of the Italian Ligurian Alps. The large windows on the Southern facade open to a wide horizon leading to the French border. An opening on the Northern wall, of the width of a chestnut board, reveals the woods at the border.
